The Avengers to be screened in space
Like what Marvel Studios says, Tony Stark would be envious of this.
The Avengers, the superhero blockbuster gathering Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo, will be screened in space.
Yes, you read that right. Thanks to a deal between Marvel Studios and NASA, the box office juggernaut will be transferred to NASA's Mission Control in Houston, the U.S., which will later uplink it to the International Space Station (ISS) to be screened for the space station crew.
"The studio is privileged to share 'Marvel's The Avengers' with those up in space exploring the universe. A special thanks goes to NASA for utilizing their incredible technology to make this special screening miles above us in space happen," said Marvel Studios' co-president and executive producer Louis D'Esposito in a press release.
