On a personal note, I didn’t actually care for any of the films when they came out, having watched a pirate copy of Iron Man that someone in my family had sourced and disliking most of the films until one day when I decided to give Winter Soldier a go.
I genuinely spent most of the time thinking Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy and such were rubbish but one day a switch was flicked inside my head and I loved them all. I now don’t think there’s a single MCU film that I don’t like at least a bit. The first two Thor films are pretty hit and miss but largely fine and I don’t even think Iron Man 2 is that deplorable.
With that in mind, it would be my utter pleasure to watch all of the films back in time for the release of Endgame where, most likely, most of the characters who I’ve come to love will die horribly. It’s a big commitment but it turns out that someone’s willing to pay someone like me or you to do that!
CableTV.com are the people looking to shed out $1,000, along with a Blu-ray copy of every single MCU movie release so far and more Marvel merch for your troubles. Their only request is that you live-tweet your experiences and help them put together a definitive ranking afterwards.
“The hero we’re looking for is not only a Marvel fanatic, but also an active, outgoing social media personality who’d be enthusiastic about live-tweeting their MCU marathon experience while tagging CableTV.com (@CableTV, #CableTV)… Besides those, our only requirements are that you be at least 18 years old and a US citizen.“
Quite annoying that you have to be American.
The films you have to watch start with Iron Man, unsurprisingly, and end with Ant-Man and The Wasp, since Captain Marvel won’t have been released on home video in time. Thankfully you don’t have to go through the endless Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and other MCU TV shows so that makes the task a little bit more digestible.
Just the 40 hours of film then.
You can apply here by submitting a video, a 200 word explanation as to why you deserve the job and various other pieces of admin. Competition will be fierce so you need to be good.
God why do you have to be American to do this? I’m perfect for the job.
I might live tweet my binge anyway. May as well plug myself… @AlfiePowell
