#10YearsOfTheMCU Photo Challenge




This year marks 10 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), culminating with the release of Avengers: Infinity War. Of course we can't let such a big event pass by without a photo challenge!

Just like previous photo challenges, each day you'll have a prompt and you post an image on whatever social media platform you want. Since the MCU is so big, we thought we'd give you some leeway with what you can post.

As you can see, each day is a piece of the MCU, both the movies and the TV/Netflix series. You can post whatever you want for each prompt: a favorite joke, fight scene, costume, special effect. For the TV shows, if there's multiple seasons, you can pick from whichever season you want. This is an opportunity for you to share what you LOVE about the MCU.

The fun begins on April 1st (no joking!) with the hashtag #10YearsOfTheMCU

Five(ish) Fangirls Episode #179: My Struggle

Soap boxes on the ready, cause we have a lot to say! Plus news and housekeeping including next month's photo challenge.
