Introducing The Beeping Goat
Meet Billy, the Beeping Goat. Why the goat is beeping, I have no idea! But that's his handle on TikTok and across the web. Did Billy choose the nickname "goat" to imply that he's the Greatest Of All Time? I don't know the answer to that either, but once you learn what he's up to, you may agree that he's the G.O.A.T. or G.M.F.O.A.T. The Greatest MCU Fan of All Time.
Billy's decided to take on an enormous film editing task. He's acquired every MCU movie on Blue-ray, and is ripping all of them onto his computer. Now, many of us love these movies, and many have even collected them all. Just in case you haven't got yours yet, I've provided links to the collector's versions of the films below. But I doubt anyone reading this has attempted to convert them all to digital. And why would we? If you own them you can already watch them whenever you want.
But Billy's ripping them so that he can edit them all into one giant MCU movie. And not just each movie back to back. He's piecemeal-ing the scenes together in chronological order. So for example, the events of Captain Marvel which took place in the 1990's, will be slotted behind Captain America the First Avenger, which took place in the 1940's, but before Iron Man 1 from 2009. And as you get around the time of Captain America Civil War, there will be some back and forth between it, Black Widow and Spider-Man Homecoming, which all happened right around the same time.
Yes you read that right... Billy's creating a 2 day long, chronologically accurate MCU movie!
This would be quite the undertaking for normal humans and superheroes alike, but not Billy. He's also including some archived footage and deleted scenes. But only those that still work with the established MCU canon, as some may have been removed for story contradictions.
So not only will you be watching the films again, you'll also be getting additional content and insight that you didn't when you saw them originally. For many of us this would not only be a fresh new way to watch the MCU movies, but an entirely new experience.
Here's Billy's break down of the project on TikTok...
But what about the time travel?
A lot of people have asked how he plans to handle time travel, which became a very integral part of the larger storyline in the latter films. Many suggested he should insert the time travel scenes into the time that they happened. So we would see Loki steal the tesseract at the end of the first Avengers film.
However, as interesting as that sounds, Billy has reported that he doesn't plan to do this because it would interfere with the story as intended by the movie's writers. Joss Whedon, the writer and director of the first Avengers film, wrote the story with Loki being captured at the end. So saving that as a flashback scene for later is more in step with the MCU's story arc. Also, having Loki escape, and then not explaining why for 20 hours of film probably isn't the best storytelling.
And I'm sure many of you are wondering about the post-credit scenes. Yep, he'll be including those as well. They're just too juicy to leave out.
I've reached out to Billy for more details on this project, and will update this article as I learn more. So bookmark this and stay tuned!
