Submissions for the Marvel Movie Marathon Job have officially closed. Thanks to everyone who applied!
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 right candidate will be paid $1,000 in cash, plus tons of MCU prizes for bingeing 40+ hours of superhero action. We’re throwing down the Infinity Gauntlet—are you up to the challenge?
Who we want to hire
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).
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).
What you’ll be watching
True Marvel aficionados already know the films but, as a refresher, here are Phases 1, 2, and 3 of the current Marvel Cinematic Universe:
MCU Phase 1
Iron Man (2008)
The Incredible Hulk (2008)
Iron Man 2 (2010)
Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
The Avengers (2012)
MCU Phase 2
Iron Man 3 (2013)
Thor: The Dark World (2013)

We’re not including movies outside of the MCU, like Deadpool, X-Men, Fantastic Four, earlier Spider-Man films, and certainly not Ghost Rider—you’re welcome. Also excluded are tangentially related Marvel/Netflix series like Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage.
We’re only asking you to power-watch approximately two days’ worth of proper blockbuster Marvel movies. Easy, right?
