There’s a Marvel Fantasy Football League, and Thor, Star-Lord, and Deadpool Are in the Lead
If you think YOUR fantasy football league is tough, imagine having to go up against Iron Man or Captain America. A bunch of actors from various Marvel movies are taking part in an ESPN league to raise awareness and money for various charities. The 12 participants are:
Robert Downey Jr.(Iron Man) . . . Chris Evans (Captain America) . . . Karen Gillan (Nebula) . . . Chris Hemsworth (Thor) . . . Tom Holland (Spider-Man) . . . Michael B. Jordan (Killmonger) . . .
Anthony Mackie (Falcon) . . . Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) . . . Chris Pratt (Star-Lord) . . . Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) . . . Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) . . . and Miles Teller (Mr. Fantastic).
“Avengers” co-director Joe Russo also has a team, along with ESPN’s fantasy football expert Matthew Berry . . . who had a cameo as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in “Avengers: Endgame” thanks to Russo being such a huge fantasy football fan.
They made the league public so you can follow along.
(Check out standings and stats here. And here’s a direct link to the scoreboard.)
Through Week 3, only three of them are still undefeated: Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, and Ryan Reynolds.
And three are WINLESS: Elizabeth Olsen, Karen Gillan, and Tom Holland . . . which, who cares anymore. Spider-Man is SONY, not Marvel, am I right???
(Here’s video of director Joe Russo and ESPN’s Matt Berry talking about it, along with some superhero smack talk.)
