Passionate Fans Couldn’t Wait to Snag a Ticket
By: Mark Deutsch
There have been numerous times when comic fans go nuts over a hyped superhero movie. Especially over the latest Marvel movies to date, such as “Captain Marvel,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and most recently, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Whatever seasoned Marvel fans expected from this movie can be described as endgame mania.
People all over the country are excited about the movie, so naturally fans have been buying tickets for the film’s release. Marvel probably expected that when the movie has run its course, the payout would be millions of dollars or even more.
Yet, based on predictions and especially the pre-sale tickets, the film could generate billions.
The pre-sale tickets are especially interesting along with the movie itself. Sites like Fandango and Atom Tickets reported some astounding news.
“Avengers: Endgame” has sold so many tickets that some sites have crashed because of the large demand and volume of people on their site.
These sites also report that ticket sales have made nearly five times as much as the first “Infinity War.” For other sites, they report that ticket sales have nearly doubled those of recent superhero movies.
“Avengers:Endgame” is breaking many records and sales may rocket even higher, producing many strange things in its wake.
Due to the massive deluge in pre-sale tickets, the movie theaters have done something special. Some theaters have opened up some exclusive hours, to allow enthusiastic fans to attend the three hour movie premiere.
The extra openings are from 4:00-6:30 am on Fridays on opening night, that’s right in the early crack of dawn.
For those diehard movie goers waiting for Endgame, here’s a chance to attend the movie. Although it’s quite the taxing and early start for a three hour movie, this is a golden pass to attend the movie’s debut. But just how desperate are fans able to buy a ticket?
There have been bids for movie tickets to see “Avengers: Endgame” in either singles or duos. Typically, people bid for tickets online at around thirty to fifty bucks if there’s decent hype and a good reputation. But bids for “Avengers: Endgame” tickets go past infinity for what normal tickets would cost.
People have been auctioning their tickets starting from two hundred to fifteen thousand dollars!
It’s like the ticket to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory is being sold! Instead, it’s a movie ticket to a Marvel film. People who are determined to see the film have been bidding on the tickets.
Which means that people have actually bought one or probably two tickets at such a high price. For such madness or fervor to break out shows how excited the fans are for the movie.
Now because of how “Infinity War” turned out, this has resulted in the present anticipation for this movie. But what will happen after the movie comes to theaters on April twenty sixth?
Will the hype of the film die down, or will the popularity of “Avengers: Endgame” remain strong weeks after its release?
Those who bid a hefty sum, such as a couple of thousand dollars just for a ticket would begin to realize after the film’s release that the face value of the ticket would decrease.
The people who spent an insane amount of money to see “Avengers: Endgame” would later realize that they could have spent way less on a ticket, had they waited a day or two after the influx of people saw the film.
But for those who want to relish in opening night of the new Marvel film and are willing to break the bank doing so, then maybe the experience is worth every penny.
