Captain America fans will have the opportunity to refresh their memory in style prior to Civil War, thanks to cinemas offering tickets to a Marvel movie extravaganza involving all of Steve Rogers' films.

In a similar format to the Star Wars binge sessions that took place before The Force Awakens, Fandango is offering tickets to its Captain America marathon at cinemas across the US.

Marvel Fans, Assemble!

The films will include Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age Of Ultron, before leading on to the pièce de résistance of Civil War (trailer below).

The much anticipated standoff between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark is the 13th in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the fifth featuring Chris Evans as the titular superhero.

Considering events in the latest film are set to take off one year after the events in Age Of Ultron — and acts as a sequel of sorts to Winter Soldier — a little re-Cap is in order. And what better way than to see the visually striking movies in all their glory on the big screen?

All of the combined films will total nine hours and four minutes, and that's before the main event begins. With Civil War included, which is expected to be the longest Marvel offering to date, cinemagoers will get 11 and-a-half hours of Avengers goodness all rolled into one extravaganza.

If you're not convinced spending half a day in a darkened room is entirely worth it, here's a look at what will be on offer:

1. 'Captain America: The First Avenger' (2011)

Runtime: 2 hours and 4 minutes

The origin story depicts Steve Rogers' transition from sickly yet lionhearted to super-soldier, and his utilization during World War II.

Runtime: 2 hours and 23 minutes

The MCU's first amalgamation of many of its leading superhero entities resulted in The Avengers.

Captain America, who woke up in the future at the end of his first solo outing, plays a pivotal role as part of the team including Iron Man, Hulk and Thor.

3. 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' (2014)

Runtime: 2 hours and 16 minutes

Cap's second solo outing centers on his partnership with Falcon and Black Widow, who join forces in an attempt to uncover a conspiracy at the counter-terrorism agency S.H.I.E.L.D.

4. 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' (2015)

Runtime: 2 hours and 21 minutes

Last year's ensemble offering also included Cap in a leading role, this time battling the threat of Ultron, a supervillain with the intent to end human life.

The events taking place in this movie are set a year before Civil War (so, basically, if you can't be bothered to do the entire marathon, maybe watch this one before).

Would you join in the 'Captain America' marathon? Or have you done your own at home?
