A couple films into The Ultimate Marvel Marathon -- six comic book movies in fourteen hours as part of a geekstravaganza celebrating the premiere of "The Avengers" -- our host for the day, a genial theater manager with a thick Noo Yawk accent named Joe, came into Auditorium 9 at Manhattan's AMC Empire Multiplex with an announcement. "If you like events like this," he said, "and you want more of them, let the company know.  There's been talk of a 'Batman' marathon. There's been talk of a 'Star Trek' marathon. There's even been talk of a 'Twilight' marathon."
