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.)
