'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Theatrical PosterAfter their whirlwind publicity tour throughout Hollywood, not to mention the star studded world premiere last night at the Dolby Theatre, the Avengers are making their way to the Big Apple for an appearance on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America,’ on Friday, April 24, 2015.

Earlier this evening, Marvel Unlimited sent out an email to its Unlimited Plus members offering the first fifteen to respond the opportunity for them and their guests to attend the event as ‘VIP Super Fans.’ While those slots are most likely filled by now, Marvel notes that the event will be open to all fans (and presumably anyone who wishes to attend ‘Good Morning America’) and confirms it will be held outside in Times Square, just outside GMA’s Studios.

The MPAA has rated the short G and the production company associated with it is Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment but given the timing  — which to be blunt doesn’t mean much — we now wonder if it’s the Inside Out Blu-ray that will include this bonus feature or if it will appear on another, closer Disney release.
