A grandmother was filmed taking notes during a Marvel superhero movie marathon - including 30 films - so she can be closer to her grandkids and talk to them about it.

Cheryl Skiados, who is in her 70s, was filmed by her grandson Jackson King, partway through her Marvel movie-fest.

The clips show Cheryl in front of the TV, with a pen in hand, as she watches Spiderman.

Cheryl, from Gainesville, Virginia, has 13 grandkids in total, aged from six to 22-years-old and they're all big Marvel fans.

Jackson, 18, who works at Target, said: "It’s really funny actually. I just moved in with my grandparents, and my grandma is making her way through all the Marvel movies.

"She is watching them in the order they came out and she asked if I wanted to watch one with her, so of course, I said 'yes.'

"I think it really shows how much she cares about her grandchildren, because she is willing to sit there for hours on end and watch superhero movies, and take notes on them, just so she can have something extra to talk to her grandkids about."

The watchlist, which starts with 2008's "Iron Man" has 30 films on it, including the latest "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," with even more films lined up for 2023 and beyond.

The video has touched the hearts of many online and racked up nearly seven million views on one video, and hundreds of thousands of likes, along with it.

"It went viral really quickly. It hit one million views within the day I posted it," Jackson said.

"I remember I posted the video on TikTok. Then I set my phone down and watched an episode of a TV show, and then when I picked up my phone I had 3,000+ notifications."

Cheryl has just finished 2017's "Spiderman: Homecoming," where her notes are revealed in one clip, and is around halfway through - with 14 films left to watch.

According to Jackson, her favorite film so far is "Thor" - "because the actor is hot."

"The family loves it.," he said.

"We all think gran is getting the recognition she deserves for being an amazing grandmother."

Cheryl, in response to the attention, says she "thinks it’s funny," and "her heart was warmed, and she felt touched, by all the comments."
