If you're a Marvel fan, rewatching the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies and talking about them comes naturally. How about getting paid for it, and showered with gifts to boot?
It sounds too good to be true, but that's exactly what CableTV.com is offering to the lucky super-fan who will be chosen to marathon all 20 MCU movies that are available on home release, leading up to the theatrical premiere of Avengers: Endgame on April 26. The job requires continual live blogging throughout the marathon, then discussing takeaways to help rank the films.
CableTV.com specified, "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 (sorry, Wakanda nationals)."
The roster for the marathon includes every movie from the MCU's Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3, but no Marvel movies outside of the MCU and none of the related TV shows. As the job description puts it, "We’re only asking you to power-watch approximately two days’ worth of proper blockbuster Marvel movies. Easy, right?"
In addition to the fame, glory and sleep deprivation of the experience, the winner will receive $1000, every MCU movie on Blu-Ray and a prize pack including such treasures as an Iron Man snuggie and a Captain America popcorn popper.
Those who believe they have what it takes for the contest can find the rules and entry form on CableTV.com. If you don't land the job, don't forget that you can still do your own marathon to prepare for Endgame. Chances are you'll be in good company.
