On Tuesday, I'll go into battle as I begin a 59-hour marathon featuring all 22 Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

I'm about to do the craziest thing I've ever done.

Tuesday - Morning - Marathon - Marvel - Movies

Starting Tuesday morning, I'll be subjecting myself to a 59-hour marathon featuring all 22 Marvel movies back to back to back to back to back.

But where will I sleep, you ask? In my chair, of course (I hear it reclines). And when? Probably during Iron Man 3.

Marvel - Fans - Theater - Marvel - Cinematic

For some Marvel fans, kicking back in a theater to watch every Marvel Cinematic Universe film may sound like a dream. But I am not a Marvel fan. In fact, I've only seen three MCU movies: Spider-Man: Homecoming, Black Panther and Captain Marvel.

Film - Starts - PT - Tuesday - Updates

The first film starts at 10 a.m. PT Tuesday and I'll be sharing live updates on Twitter and on CNET between movies, in addition to...
