“We [youth campaigners SpunOut.ie] have another in our popular series of charity table quizzes coming up, this time it will be based on all the Marvel movies to date.
The questions will be taken from all Marvel movies to date (not just ones related to the Avengers) so you better brush up on your Spider-man, X-Men, Iron-Man, Captain America, Thor, Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Punisher, Blade, Daredevil, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers and more!
We will have six question rounds, one picture round and a video round. There have been almost 40 movies based on Marvel comics since 1986, so you’d better start re-watching now!”
