A Wisconsin man has broken a Guinness World Record by seeing Captain Marvel a staggering number of times.
According to CBS 58, Steve Ruppel saw Captain Marvel a staggering 116 times at the Marcus Cedar Creek Cinema in Rothschild, Wisconsin. As Captain Marvel has a runtime of approximately 123 minutes, that means Ruppel has spent 14,268 minutes watching the film, which is equal to 237.8 hours or 9.9 days, since the movie released in early March. He remarked that he took time off of work in order to see the film.
Ruppel only had to see the film 104 times to break the previous record.
"I thought it was the most insane thing ever, I thought it was impossible," Ruppel said. "I wasn't even sure why it was even a record, but I thought after a while 'I should probably do that.'"
Explaining why he chose Captain Marvel, Ruppel said, "I love superhero movies, and so this was a pretty good fit. I knew it was going to be around for a while, and I thought it would probably be a good choice for this particular record. Looking back on it now, I might almost consider a Disney movie, because they're usually shorter and probably around for a while, but that singing would drive me crazy. It really would."
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Yon-Rogg, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, Algenis Perez Soto as Att-Lass, McKenna Grace as a young Carol Danvers and Annette Bening as the Supreme Intelligence. The movie is in theaters now.
