In a world of strange jobs people get paid to do, things may have just gotten infinitely stranger.
In preparation for the latest Marvel installment, “Avengers: Endgame,” due out in theaters on April 26, the website CableTV.com is on the hunt for binge-happy candidates to cash in by watching 20 Marvel movies in just three days, calling it the Marvel Movie Marathon Experience. And here’s the kicker: the cable news and information site will pay you $1000 bucks to do it.
CableTV.com is capitalizing on the success of 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” which was the first superhero film to gross over $2 billion worldwide and broke numerous box office records, becoming the highest-grossing film of 2018, as well as the fourth-highest-grossing film of all time in the United States and Canada.
CableTV.Com’s website reads: “Do you have the endurance of Iron Man? The tenacity of Captain America? The leisure time of Ant-Man? Then CableTV.com has a mission for you: watch all 20 previously released Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies back-to-back, leading up to the highly anticipated 2019 premiere of Avengers: Endgame (April 26).”
The website is looking for an “active, outgoing social media personality” to watch every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie and live-tweet their binge. “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),” according to the site.
But that’s not all: “Once your MCU binge-watch and live-tweeting extravaganza is complete, we’ll ask you to share your takeaways from the movies so we can make some beautiful, badass rankings together. Besides those, our only requirements are that you be at least 18 years old and a US citizen (sorry, Wakanda nationals).”
In addition to the little sum, the binge-watching superfan will receive every Marvel Cinematic Universe Blu-Ray film and a “Marvel Marathon Survival Kit,” which consists of goodies fit for a an Iron Man, including a Captain America popcorn popper, popcorn kernels, a Thanos Infinity Gauntlet mug, an Iron Man snuggie and a $100 GrubHub gift card.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe marathon will be done chronologically in three phases, beginning with 2008′s “Iron Man” in phase 1 and ending with 2018′s “Ant-Man and the Wasp” in phase 3.
Blockbuster films “Captain America,” “The Avengers” and “Thor,” as well as others like “Black Panther” and “Doctor Strange” are included in the Marvel Movie Marathon Experience.
However, some Marvel superhero movies like “Deadpool” and “Fantastic Four” are not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and therefore will not be included in the marathon. For Marvel Maniacs, the deadline to apply is April 15.
The newest installment in the Avengers franchise follows the superheroes after the devastation of “Avengers: Infinity War,” as they unite to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe.
“Avengers: Endgame,” starring Brie Larson, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Winston Duke and more, smashes into theaters on April 26.
