Making ready for a 59-hour Marvel film marathon


I am going to add to this story (newest updates on the backside) and share Twitter updates about my dwindling frame of mind, so you should definitely observe me there to see how I am holding up.

I’ve seen solely three MCU motion pictures thus far: Spider-Man: Homecoming, Black Panther and Captain Marvel. I favored them, however I would not name myself an enormous Marvel fan… but. Here is to hopefully turning into one.

The film rundown: 

Day 1

Tuesday, 9:23 a.m. PT: I am standing exterior the AMC Metreon ready to get in. There are seven different folks ready. I might figured the theater would’ve opened the doorways by now. First meal of the day: lemon cake from Starbucks. A wanted sugar rush.   

Tuesday, 9:58 a.m. PT: I am in my seat! These chairs are significantly good. Loads of house between rows, which is nice for getting out and in and stretching your legs.  

Tuesday, midday PT: Simply completed Iron Man! I am happy to say I loved it, as just about everybody advised me I’d. The plot was enjoyable to observe and there wasn’t an excessive amount of loopy motion (which is usually a deterrent for me). And I am really — dare I say it — excited to observe the sequel in a couple of hours. 

Additionally, these seats are superb. I can completely see myself taking some unbelievable energy naps in right here.

Nonetheless not hungry sufficient for lunch — I had some lemon cake at round 9:30 and that is stored me full. Possibly I am going to get some pizza after I do get hungry, although. Tony Stark ate some within the film and it regarded scrumptious. Subsequent up: The Unbelievable Hulk. 

Tuesday, 2 p.m. PT: Stepped out of The Unbelievable Hulk for a fast prayer break (I am Muslim and I pray 5 occasions a day). Was going to attend till the film was over however figured it would not kill me to overlook a few of it….  

Tuesday, 2:30 p.m. PT: Iron Man 2 is beginning and I am consuming scrumptious BBQ hen pizza.

Tuesday, 4:30 p.m. PT: Iron Man 2 simply ended. It was enjoyable, I simply did not get as into the plot as I did for the primary film. To be honest, I do not know if I ought to blame the film or my mind. 

It was fairly cool to see items of (what I assume to be) different Marvel motion pictures begin coming collectively, with what I consider to be Captain America’s protect showing in a single scene and Scarlett Johansson’s character exhibiting up (I do not know the character’s title with out Googling it, I am afraid to say).

I am beginning to really feel sleepy however I’m wondering if that is as a result of I have been in a darkish room for six hours. Thor is subsequent. Let’s have a look at if I go to sleep.

Tuesday 7:44 p.m PT: Simply completed grabbing dinner with my pal and colleague Alexandra Ready. We had some scrumptious burgers and garlic fries from Tremendous Duper that absolutely hit the spot (sorry to the man sitting subsequent to me within the theater). 

I am having fun with an hour-and-a-half break between Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger. I attempted to sleep throughout Thor however it seems that is simpler mentioned than accomplished, as I used to be woken up by loud sound results all through. Nonetheless, it is protected to say that film was misplaced on me. Primarily based on suggestions from many of us on Twitter, although, I did not miss a lot. 

I am charging my telephone within the hallway, however a couple of of us are napping within the theater. Relaxation shall be a lot wanted, as the following lengthy break is not till round 10:30 a.m. PT tomorrow.

This story initially printed April 23 at 10 a.m. PT and shall be up to date usually over the course of the marathon.
