No, this isn't a spoiler about the sequel to The Avengers.
Marvel has made a deal with NASA to screen their record-setting blockbuster IN SPACE!
Mission Control in Houston will provide an uplink to the International Space Station so the ship's crew can enjoy the earthly pleasure that features a collection of superheroes fighting alien invaders.
Marvel Studios' co-president and executive producer of the film, Louis D'Esposito, said in a press release:
"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. It is a screening that would make Tony Stark envious."
That's pretty cool that we have technology to send movies to space, but then again, it's monumentally cooler that we have the technology to travel to space in the first place!
We hope the astronauts like the movie as much as we did!
