Watch the Entire Infinity Saga in Theaters!

Now this is what I’m talking about! A 22-movie, 59-hour Marvel Movie Marathon for the low, low price of $125! That’s less than $6 per movie! You get to see the entire Infinity Saga, ending with the titanic, 3-hour Avengers: Endgame on its premiere night!

The details are a little sketchy. AMC’s official page for the event is here, but doesn’t have many details. It may be hosted in theaters in 11 cities, or maybe it is only 3 cities (New York, Chicago, and San Francisco). It starts on April 23rd and ends on April 26th, but it isn’t clear what time it starts on the 23rd. ButFandango lists it as starting on May 23rd. (c’mon guys! Let’s get organized here!)

Also, it isn’t too clear to me why it runs 59 hours. Watching all 22 films (including Endgame) would take 47 hours and 53 minutes (thank you Movie Marathon Time and your movie time adding abilities!). A half hour break between each film adds 11 hours to the marathon, so perhaps that is where the 59 hour length comes from.

So – if you aren’t the lucky social media influencer selected to get paid to watch all these movies, do the next best thing and pay for it! You are buying in bulk!

And don’t worry – if you can’t make it through all 59 hours – you have Iron Man 2 and Thor: The Dark World to sleep through.

Get Paid for a Marvel Movie Marathon? will pay you $1,000 if you have a marvel movie marathon and tweet about it!

If you watched all of the movies in their lineup back-to-back, that’s a cool 42 hours and 47 minutes. Getting paid $23 an hour to watch movies is a pretty good wage! You also get some additional goodies:

  • Every Marvel MCU Blu-Ray film for your collection
  • A Captain America popcorn popper
  • Orville Redenbacher popcorn kernels
  • Thanos Infinity Gauntlet mug
  • Iron Man snuggie

I’m not sure I need all those things, but an Infinity Gauntlet mug does sound pretty badass

I loaded up their lineup into my movie marathon app. The app tells me that if you watched all of these movies back-to-back, this is what your next two days would look like:

  • Iron Man (2008) 12:00 PM 2:06 PM
  • The Incredible Hulk (2008) 2:06 PM 4:00 PM
  • Iron Man 2 (2010) 4:00 PM 6:04 PM
  • Thor (2011) 6:04 PM 7:59 PM
  • Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) 7:59 PM 10:03 PM
  • The Avengers (2012) 10:03 PM 12:26 AM
  • Iron Man 3 (2013) 12:26 AM 2:36 AM
  • Thor: The Dark World (2013) 2:36 AM 4:28 AM
  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) 4:28 AM 6:44 AM
  • Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) 6:44 AM 8:45 AM
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) 8:45 AM 11:06 AM
  • Ant-Man (2015) 11:06 AM 1:03 PM
  • Captain America: Civil War (2016) 1:03 PM 3:30 PM
  • Doctor Strange (2016) 3:30 PM 5:25 PM
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) 5:25 PM 7:42 PM
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) 7:42 PM 9:55 PM
  • Thor: Ragnarok (2017) 9:55 PM 12:05 AM
  • Black Panther (2018) 12:05 AM 2:19 AM
  • Avengers: Infinity War (2018) 2:19 AM 4:48 AM
  • Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) 4:48 AM 6:47 AM

Sadly, I don’t think I’m quite cool enough to get the job. You need to be a social media “influencer”.

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, #CableTV).

Also, I’m disappointed to find this isn’t really a movie marathon!

And don’t worry… we will let you sleep. The chosen candidate will have three days to complete this epic binge.

What is the challenge in that? Anyone with opposable thumbs can watch some movies and tweet about it. Binge watching them over 42 hours takes real skill!

Ah well – I’ll just have to wait for the next opportunity to get paid to watch movies. I’m sure it’ll come some day.

Marvel Movie Marathon

I mentioned a while back that having a Marvel movie marathon sounds like a good idea and that I’d put together a sample schedule for such a marathon.

Well here it is, in all its sample glory. This would be one sweet movie marathon, if I do say so myself. If only we had latent superpowers unlocked by sleep deprivation, instead of anger.

The rule of thumb I used for selecting the movies was that I chose the first movie in a series to favor a variety of “origin story” movies, rather than following the sequels of any particular series. Your mileage may vary. Spider-man 2, for example, is widely regarded as one of the best superhero movies of all time. The Punisher is, well, “meh” at best. Just be thankful I didn’t include Howard the Duck.

Also, I put the films in chronological order of their release for no particularly good reason. Perhaps it will help you appreciate the special effects as they go from worst to best. Enjoy!

Marvel Movie Marathon Movies


BladeMy take: Wesley Snipes plays a vampire hunter who really hates vampires and their midnight rave blood-shower parties. What a buzzkill.


X-MenMy take: Patrick Stewart plays himself as a totally awesome psychic leader of superhero mutants battling other villainous mutants. Things go boom. Punches are exchanged.

Spider Man

Spider-ManMy take: Tobey Maguire plays a half-human, half-spider. Surprisingly, very few fluids are sucked out of ensnared victims. Mostly, stuff blows up and people smooch and whatnot.


DaredevilMy take: Ben Affleck plays a leather-clad superhero lawyer. His powers of filing briefs and clocking billable hours are unparalleled.

The Punisher

The PunisherMy take: The Punisher fights crime using….no superpowers and pretty conventional weaponry. He’s like Batman without infinite resources, a utility belt, or any kind of working ethical system.

Fantastic Four

The Fantastic FourMy take: Astronauts become superheros who battle an evil CEO while in skin-tight, sexy uniforms. The American dream in a nutshell.

Iron Man

Iron ManMy take: A cocky millionaire invents cold fusion and a flying mechanical battle suit with the help of various robots and artificial intelligences of his own design. This is Showgirls for engineers.

The Incredible Hulk

The Incredible HulkMy take: A man who turns into a gigantic, super-powered green fighting machine? Credible. His pants stay intact post-transformation? Incredible.


ThorMy take: The god of thunder comes to earth to participate in a deadly martial arts tournament….oh wait. That’s Mortal Kombat. In this one, the god of thunder goes to New Mexico and flirts with an attractive astrophysicist. Which film do you think is more plausible?

Captain America: The First Avenger

Captain AmericaMy take: Captain America – the superhero who is…really strong due to chemical enhancements…and he has a shield. So – he’s pretty much Barry Bonds with a shield instead of a bat.

The Avengers

AvengersMy take: Calling Team Awesome! Assemble in the flying aircraft carrier and fight an evil God and his invincible alien army from another dimension! Clearly the best movie ever made.

Movie Marathon Theme Idea: Marvel Comics Movies

While goofing around on the internet (is there another purpose to the internet?), I ran into this post from an undergrad at FIU that described her top 10 movie marathons. One idea I really liked was a Marvel Movie marathon. Marvel has been making some quality movies lately – why not cram the best into a 24-hour marathon?

Of course, some Marvel half-marathons have already been held, but is there enough material for a 24-hour marathon? Thankfully, the internet knows a thing or two about comic books: There are about 30 Marvel movies available. You could make a 24-hour movie marathon out of this without breaking a sweat.

Stay tuned for a sample schedule. Thanks dfox1992 for the idea!
