It's already conquered the world box office, now it appears that "The Avengers" is set to become an out-of-this-world hit ... literally.
Marvel Studios just announced that they've teamed up with NASA to have the mega-successful flick screened for the astronauts living on the the International Space Station, which is currently orbiting 220 miles above Earth.
"These are the types of things that help to keep the crew connected to home, which is a huge morale boost while being away for long periods of time,“ said Dan Cook, a Psychological Support Coordinator who works with the space agency.
Marvel Co-President and Executive Producer of the film, Louis D'Esposito, said “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.”
Fun fact: This is the second time NASA has been involved with "The Avengers" -- part of the film was actually shot at a NASA facility in Ohio!
