My 59-hour Marvel movie marathon is here. Yes, I'm about to watch 59 hours of Marvel movies, back-to-back (to back).

For two and a half days, I'll essentially be confined to a chair at an AMC theater in San Francisco as I attempt to watch all the movies from start to finish, beginning with Iron Man and wrapping up with Avengers: Endgame on Thursday (read our CNET review here).

I'll add to this story (latest updates at the bottom) and share Twitter updates about my dwindling state of mind, so be sure to follow me there to see how I'm holding up.

Tuesday, 9:58 a.m. PT: I'm in my seat! These chairs are seriously nice. Plenty of space between rows, which is great for getting in and out and stretching your legs.

Tuesday - PT - Just

Tuesday, noon PT: Just...
