You Can Get Paid $1,000 To Marathon All The Marvel Movies

The idea of sitting around all day watching superhero movies - without anyone calling you a lazy sod - seems like a dream that's too good to be true. So what if I told you this could not only be a reality, but you could also get paid to do precisely that?

CableTV.com is offering one person the opportunity to binge on all 20 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies before the release of Avengers: Endgame on 26 April.

The successful candidate will be paid $1,000 in cash and will also get given Marvel merchandise - and, of course, you'll get to watch a load of great movies back-to-back (40+ hours in total, by the way).

"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," the job ad says.

"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)."

The job spec adds you'll need to have the 'endurance of Iron Man', the 'tenacity of Captain America' and the 'leisure time of Ant-Man' to watch all previously released MCU movies, which have been classified in three separate phrases:

MCU Phase 1

Iron Man (2008)
The Incredible Hulk (2008)
Iron Man 2 (2010)
Thor (2011)
Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
The Avengers (2012)

MCU Phase 2

Iron Man 3 (2013)
Thor: The Dark World (2013)
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Ant-Man (2015)

MCU Phase 3

Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Doctor Strange (2016)
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)
Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
Black Panther (2018)
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)

That's right, there's no need to watch any of the movies outside of the MCU like Deadpool, X-Men, Fantastic Four, earlier Spider-Man films - and 'certainly not Ghost Rider' - just the core films.

"Also excluded are tangentially related Marvel/Netflix series like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage," the ad explains.

Basically, you just have to bust out the popcorn and power-watch approximately two days' worth of blockbuster Marvel movies... As in, the job you were absolutely born to do.
