There are regular Marvel fans, and then there’s this Florida man who watched Avengers: Endgame 191 times in 94 days.
Marvel superfan Ramiro Alanis, a Florida-based personal trainer, officially holds the Guinness World Record for the most cinema productions attended of the same film, watching Avengers: Endgame 191 times to capture the crown.
“I’m Officially Amazing!!!” he tweeted March 16, referencing GWR’s slogan.
Alanis seems to have completed the feat on July 29, 2019, according to the certificate he received, just over three months after the movie hit theaters on April 26, 2019.
So just how long would it take to watch Endgame 191 times? With a run-time of 181 minutes, Alanis spent 576 hours, or 24 full days, watching the film.
Given the time commitment, Alanis admitted he did have to give up a few things to set the record. It took a lot out of Alanis, who gave an interview to Guinness.
“The most difficult part about this attempt was giving up my social life with my family, the gym (I lost 16 pounds of muscle), and managing my work hours and screening times at the theaters,” he said.
It was all worth it when he received the official email confirmation, with Alanis saying tears flooded his eyes.
He said he couldn’t have done it without “the support I got from family, friends, managers, and staff from the theaters I visited” as well as the fellow Marvel fans cheering his journey on social media.
