On Tuesday, I will go into battle as I start a 59-hour marathon that includes all 22 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
I am about to do the craziest factor I’ve ever executed.
Beginning Tuesday morning, I will be subjecting myself to a 59-hour marathon that includes all 22again to again to again to again to again.
That is proper, ALL of them.
Meaning for 2 and a half days, I will basically be confined to a chair at an AMC theater in San Francisco as I try to observe all the flicks from begin to end, starting with Iron Man and wrapping up withon Thursday. (Don’t be concerned, I will rise up to do stretches, use the toilet and cry in a darkish nook.) I will dwell off of popcorn, movie show pizza and peanut M&Ms.
However the place will I sleep, you ask? In my chair, after all (I hear it reclines). And when? Most likely throughout Iron Man three.
Getting ready for a 59-hour Marvel film marathon
For some Marvel followers, kicking again in a theater to observe each Marvel Cinematic Universe movie might sound like a dream. However I’m not a Marvel fan. In reality, I’ve solely seen three MCU motion pictures: Spider-Man: Homecoming, Black Panther and Captain Marvel. I favored them, however I am one of many few individuals at CNET headquarters who is not counting down the times till Avengers: Endgame comes out.
Which is able to make this insane endeavor all of the extra attention-grabbing. Will it flip me right into a Marvel fanatic? Will I sleep via half the movies? Will I ever have the braveness to step foot in a theater once more? Keep tuned to seek out out.
The primary movie begins at 10 a.m. PT Tuesday and I will be sharing dwell updates on Twitter and on CNET between motion pictures, along with filming my gradual deterioration to your enjoyment. Make sure you observe alongside to see how I am faring.
Avengers: Endgame — The whole lot it’s essential know
However first, I’ve to pack. If I will spend that lengthy in a theater, I will want some necessities: a toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, further socks, a number of outfits, some battery packs, a light-weight blanket, an eye fixed masks and earplugs for once I need to block all the pieces out and get some sleep (let’s hope the sound system is not nice). I will most likely preserve footage of my family members useful to assist me in my darkest hours.
Regardless of concern from my co-workers and household that I’ve misplaced my thoughts (or absolutely will after this), I am truly fairly excited. Perhaps it is as a result of I am naive and do not know what 59 hours in a theater can do to an individual. I could have an entire meltdown once I lastly get to the final movie and bear in mind it is three hours lengthy. You might even see a aspect of me I by no means knew existed, one which reveals how a lot of a monster I’m once I’m sleep disadvantaged and operating on nothing however greasy meals and my will to outlive.
In the event you’d additionally like to observe all the flicks main as much as the discharge of Avengers: Endgame, here is tips on how to stream them. Afterwards, we will bond over our mutual madness.
Let’s do that.
