A MAN is preparing to see the latest Marvel blockbuster by spending 96 hours rewatching previous films from the franchise.
Stephen Malley has been working up to enjoying Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness by desperately cramming other Marvel media so he has a vague clue what the f**k is going on.
Malley said: “I love the intricacies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but it’s so complicated that, unless you’ve got an excellent memory and a lot of time on your hands, it’s also a massive ball-ache.
“To fully understand the new one I need to refresh myself on the last Dr. Strange as well as Spider-Man: No Way Home, Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame and the first X-Men film, even though it isn’t strictly MCU canon. If we’re being picky, which I am.
“I should also rewatch both Loki and Wandavision, which together come in at about ten hours. I’ve got to work this week but I could do it overnight if I drank enough coffee. Or maybe I should get some cocaine?
“A friend has given me a bundle of 72 comics to look at as well, which at least I can read while stuck in traffic or having a crap. It’ll be fine. I can do it.”
Malley’s friend Tom Booker said: “Stephen fell fast asleep five minutes into the film. Some fan he is.”
