I’m doing the unthinkable this week.— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 22, 2019
Work is paying me to sit through a 59 hour, 22 Marvel movie marathon at @AMCTheatres, all leading up to #AvengersEndgame. And we’re documenting the whole experience! Follow along starting Tuesday with #BpopesEndgamehttps://t.co/hhMgIvXy9e
Having a blast and the #MarvelMovieMarathon hasn’t even started yet! Just interviewed a guy for the @TheJamTVShow here in Chicago ALL THE WAY from Florida who built his own Iron Man arc reactor and has an Infinity Guantlet replica. These are my people ?? #BpopesEndgamepic.twitter.com/v2KRquo9TJ— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 23, 2019
This is about to be the ultimate test of human endurance. Dietitian Kathleen Ready stopped by to give me some tips to stay energized and (somewhat) healthy. She also brought me snacks! ???— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 23, 2019
Unfortunately, she says popcorn is NOT a vegetable ? #BpopesEndGame@TheJamTVShowpic.twitter.com/rtCv3dR5fF
Every fan in attendance gets a free blanket, kit with toothbrush and chapstick, 24/7 concession access and unlimited fountain drinks/water.— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 23, 2019
They all say: “WHATEVER IT TAKES.”
There will be more giveaways, plus trivia and small breaks #Endgame#MarvelMovieMarathon#BPopesEndgamepic.twitter.com/mxaMH3jR1e
No outside food allowed, but breaks for people to use the restroom, make a call, or go somewhere and grab a quick bite. Most breaks are just 10-15 minutes but there will be a 1 hour break and a 45 minute one. My challenge is to stay the whole time #BpopesEndGame@TheJamTVShowhttps://t.co/5R7WyDzfHQ— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 23, 2019
You got this Brandon! ? #BPopesEndgame— Damon (@geminimoon) April 24, 2019
Yeah, I definitely fell asleep on Captain America. BUT WE ARE 12 HOURS DOWN! Actually excited for movie 6: THE AVENGERS. Haven’t seen this first one in awhile. @TheJamTVShow#bpopesendgamepic.twitter.com/MutM39wxoy— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 24, 2019
That first Avengers movie holds so much nostalgia. Forgot how many quotables it contained. Watched it all. Now it’s 1:05am and a whole new day. Iron Man 3 is next. Many in attendance already saying they will sleep through it. #BpopesEndgame@TheJamTVShowpic.twitter.com/REHubil0FQ— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 24, 2019
The movie theatre has become a lawless place where people sleep wherever they want after eating pretzels and popcorn at 1AM. ? #MarvelMovieMarathon#BpopesEndgame@TheJamTVShow@wciupic.twitter.com/Ng0jgaQ4Yn— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 24, 2019
Napped during Thor 2, Like, literally, everyone ? Now time to freshen up before Live shots for @TheJamTVShow . It’s getting musty in that theatre. Smells like butter mixed with sweat ? Making sure I’m not part of the problem. #BpopesEndgamepic.twitter.com/UEOgQgAs76— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 24, 2019
From Indy to LA, we’re getting lots of love around the country for #BPopesEndgame. Thanks to everyone so far for following the madness. @TheJamTVShow@wciu#MarvelMovieMarathonpic.twitter.com/QBn3Dv6dos— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 24, 2019
Definitely a change of pace.— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 24, 2019
Guardians of the Galaxy shows the power of Marvel because I’m not sure anyone else could sell a talking tree and raccoon. #BPopesEndGame#MarvelMovieMarathon@TheJamTVShow@wciuhttps://t.co/NFegu5IgeD
We’re on the other extended break now. About an hour. And @McDonalds came through with HAPPY MEALS for everyone in attendance. And it came with a TOY. Feeling like a kid again! #BpopesEndgame@TheJamTVShow@wciupic.twitter.com/15Bg79ytLB— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 24, 2019
Your boy lost count ?— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 24, 2019
Age Of Ultron just started.
11/22 Marvel films down.
To me, this sequel was a major let down. Ultron could have been such a better villain. Waste of James Spader’s talents. #BPopesEndgame@wciu@TheJamTVShowpic.twitter.com/DLnvCIFAph
Ant-Man is next, 12th movie in the 22 movie marathon. Lots of talk here about this being the napping film.— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 24, 2019
Some of these people are experts of sneaking away for some ? #BpopesEndgame@wciu@TheJamTVShowpic.twitter.com/IU1DcBIIey
The epic Civil War fight scene with everybody battling each other deserves a theatrical watch.— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 24, 2019
And I want to give Captain Marvel a second chance to “wow” me. #BPopesEndgame@TheJamTVShowhttps://t.co/HHN8Eyc13k
This is that tough point where I have to debate if/when I sleep or nap. My usual bedtime is about 7pm. Probably got one more movie in me before I’m worn out ? #BpopesEndgame@TheJamTVShowhttps://t.co/LC9LpWEUD9— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 24, 2019
Movie 13: CAPTAIN AMERICA CIVIL WAR ????— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 24, 2019
The movie that introduced Spider-Man and Black Panther. And that airplane carrier fight scene is gold.
Team Cap or Team Iron Man?#BPopesEndgame@TheJamTVShow@wciupic.twitter.com/r72F9pWUGk
Going on Hour 34 with our 14th Marvel movie. Dr. Strange. Quickly become a favorite character of mine. He TURNED UP in Infinity War. I like this origin movie a lot but it might be smart for me to use it for a snooze #BPopesEndgame@TheJamTVShow@wciupic.twitter.com/brNrQD9oSO— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 25, 2019
Hope your able to get in a nap at least soon. Love all your tweets during this #BPopesEndgame— Mike Hanley ?? ?? (@Magic20099) April 25, 2019
A whole new day. THE FINAL DAY of the #MarvelMovieMarathon starts with Spider-Man: Homecoming. Just plain fun. One of the better Spidey films ever made. Marvel was never going to mess this one up. #BPopesEndgame@TheJamTVShowpic.twitter.com/6rfKRC0hdZ— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 25, 2019
Haven’t been able to sleep much at all. So I found a nearby empty auditorium. Maybe an hour or two here ? the #BpopesEndGame ultimate goal: not being sleepy for the final movie #Endgamepic.twitter.com/WeKoYbFPad— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 25, 2019
#BPopesEndgame is reaching its final leg with Thor: Ragnarok. A movie so good, it may have revived the asgardian’s franchise promises. 12 HOURS UNTIL #ENDGAME@TheJamTVShow@wciupic.twitter.com/VXkrDFVZ9H— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 25, 2019
“Opps on the radar!”— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 25, 2019
The cultural classic Black Panther.
A movie I had been waiting for since I was 10 years old. It didn’t disappoint. What’s your favorite moment?
18 down. 4 more to go. #BpopesEndGame@TheJamTVShow@wciupic.twitter.com/PvR1yufuJc
Ant-Man and the Wasp is the second to last movie before #Endgame. My eyes hanging low. NEED CAFFEINE IMMEDIATELY. Humor from this fun film should help. Paul Rudd is a gem. #BPopesEndgame@TheJamTVShow@wciupic.twitter.com/hhUXJgZiBF— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 25, 2019
Captain Marvel is a hugely important film. Love the character. The movie was just “O-K” to me. But I can’t wait to see what Carol Danvers does in #Endgame. Almost time. #BPopesEndgame@TheJamTVShowpic.twitter.com/EO60j0ef6R— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 25, 2019
We’ve seen a woman become a super powered space cadet, a man who talks to ants, a king of a fictional African nation, and a ragtag group of aliens with a talking tree and raccoon. Marvel has made “make believe” believable. 21 movies later, it’s time for #Endgame. #BPopesEndgamepic.twitter.com/dwsuXUsfEn— Brandon Pope TV (@BpopeTV) April 25, 2019
