One dedicated Marvel fan has seen Avengers: Infinity War 42 times (and counting) on the big screen. Featuring more than 70 characters, Avengers 3 marks the beginning of the end of everything that has transpired in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2008's Iron Man. It also sets up the stage for next year's still-untitled Avengers 4 movie which is expected to feature the final bout between Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Thanos.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo with the story written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, Infinity War was a box office hit, breaking several ticket sales records around the world. The movie was also generally liked by the moviegoing audience, as well as critics. But it's safe to say that nobody likes the film more than this MCU loyalist who spent more than 100 hours watching the same film over and over again.
A Marvel fan going by Nem: The Infinity Watcher on Twitter, took it to his official social media platform account to record all 42 times he has gone to see Infinity War on the big screen via posting countless selfies and ticket stubs. The loyal MCU follower has quickly garnered attention from his fellow fans this week, and while some questioned his sanity for seeing one movie this many times, others are just baffled by his commitment to the latest Marvel juggernaut. Tracing back his posts since the film came out late April, it appears that he's seen it almost every day - some days, he even watched it twice.
Even other self-confessed Marvel fans are in awe with the fans' dedication to the MCU, that some of them are campaigning for Nem to be flown out to Los Angeles (or wherever it may be) next year for Avengers 4's red carpet event. No word as of yet from the Russos or anyone else from Marvel Studios, but considering how the folks involved in the franchise keep close contact with their fans, this is not outside the realm of possibility. Perhaps Robert Downey Jr. could make this possible.
Nem didn't disclose if he has a target number, but after his story broke out on social media and even became a Trending Topic on Twitter, the YouTube content creator celebrated his newfound fame by, of course, going to see Avengers: Infinity War for the 43rd time. For some, it may be ridiculous to see one film this many times (especially with other blockbusters like Deadpool 2 and Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out last month), not to mention to pay for it every single time, but it doesn't seem like he's burned out by his countless trips to the cinemas. If anything, he looked pretty stoked watching the Marvel movie again this week.
