The clock is ticking down to the premiere of Avengers: Endgame and the hype is real. There are no doubt a number of fans who are planning their own personal rewatch of the MCU, be it just a couple of their favorites or the entire library of movies. Well, if you're going watch all of them anyway, you might as well get paid to do it. One website is offering one fan the opportunity to binge 20 MCU movies for $1,000 and a handful of other prizes.
Movie marathons are a fun way to celebrate a particular series, and there's no grander marathon than the MCU. After more than 10 years, the cinematic universe consists of 21 films, one which is in theaters right now. To undertake a rewatch of these films is a daunting task, but if you are going to be paid $1,000, it probably gets a little easier.
A website called CableTV is offering one fan the chance at what it calls a "Dream Job." The site wants someone to watch 20 MCU films in preparation for Avengers: Endgame. Captain Marvel isn't included because it is in theaters now and doesn't have a DVD. That's still over 40 hours of content, truly testing the might of the superfan CableTV is looking for.
If you are selected for the binge, you will be paid $1,000 (thats 50 bucks per movie) and CableTV will send you a ton of additional prizes. The fan will receive every MCU movie on Blu-ray (the three boxsets, specifically, plus the films not collected in those sets). Additionally, they will get a Captain America popcorn popper, an Infinity Gauntlet mug, an Iron Man snuggie, and a $100 Grubhub gift card.
The only requirements are that the fan has to be 18 years or older, a U.S. citizen, and an "active, outgoing social media personality," according to the site. The social media part is important because the selected fan will have to live-tweet their experience and tag CableTV in all of their posts.
To apply for the contracted position, you have to submit a 200 word essay making your case and proving your MCU expertise and fandom. If you want extra brownie points, you can also submit a video message. Should you be selected, you will have three days to watch all the movies, so you will get some amount of sleep.
I once tried to watch four MCU films in a row and it was emotionally and physically exhausting, so good luck to whoever can watch 20 of them.
For the rest of us, we'll just have to watch the movies with no promise of a pay check like a bunch of animals. Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26. To learn more about the film, here's what we know so far.
