It’s here, well actually, for us it’s almost here. I’m talking about the release of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, the most anticipated movie of the year and probably the biggest superhero movie of all time.

First Reactions To 'Avengers: Infinity War'

(That gif also represents how we’re running to the finish line, it’s so symbolic.)

While we have to wait for a few days for the release, some lucky bastards have already watched it and no, I’m not jealous at all, I’m just patiently waiting.

Okay, maybe just a little bit jealous because honestly, we’ve been waiting for what seems like a lifetime.

First Reactions To 'Avengers: Infinity War'

So, the premier happened last night in Los Angeles and critics’ early reactions are already rolling in. People finally have the answer to how Marvel actually managed to fit so many superheroes into one movie and get them to fight over some rainbow stones.

The premier last night was the biggest treat for the stars, press and lucky fans who got an early look at the movie and at least we also got something out of it. If the early reactions are any indication, you need to book that first day, first show right now.

Thanks for rubbing it in our faces, Brie.

Or, maybe we won’t have to wait. Mark, do your thing again man, we’re waiting. We’re counting on you.

In case Mark doesn’t come through this time, let’s just read these short reviews in the meantime while we wait for April 27.

The one thing to know to realize how epic the movie is the fact that Kevin Smith broke the embargo with a tweet that literally has the embargo time in it.

I am overwhelmed. The movie is epic beyond compare. LOVED it. My legs are still shaking. It’s a gigantic @Marvel masterpiece. So much to say but I’ll stay Silent Bob til Monday so as not to slip in spoilers. Suffice to say it’s gonna be a looooong year until @Avengers 4… pic.twitter.com/aHnsgj5MK0

Since the actual review embargo hasn’t been lifted, here’s a helpful emoji review.

See, now this is what we want.

“Avengers: Infinity War” is the culmination of the last 10 years in the MCU, coming to a point of flawless action, dramatic effect, and a breathtaking appeal for its fans.  It is an impeccable achievement in both direction and visuals.  (1 of 2) #Avengers #InfinityWar pic.twitter.com/DVcxtI3Scs

“Avengers: Infinity War” puts all the stakes on the table.  It could be “Empire Strikes Back” of superhero films, where you are put through the ringer OR Marvel could renege on everything we witnessed, & spit in the face of its fans in Part 2. Hope not #Avengers #InfinityWar 2/2 pic.twitter.com/pF3tCqxlAh

— Clayton Davis (@AwardsCircuit) April 24, 2018

I can’t wait to watch it now.

#InfinityWar is mostly great, somehow managing to mix all the elements of the MCU into one big mix-tape of fun, thrills, emotion… and despair. The ending is brilliant.

Me too, man.

Laughter. Fights. Tough decisions. Triumph and emptiness. @Avengers has it all. I feel the weight of what I just saw and the journey of the last ten years bearing down. Mama needs a drink. Wow. #infinitywar #ThanosDemandsYourSilence

Now, this sounds helpful.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is basically CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR times 20, except with less hero-on-hero fighting. I think people who loved the airport fight in CIVIL WAR like I did will go nuts for this film, and people who were bored will be 20 times as bored here. #InfinityWar

But personally, if I’d seen #InfinityWar for the first time at a normal screening in a normal theater, I would have walked out afterward, bought another ticket, and walked right back in for a second viewing. That’s how much I was into it.

— Tasha Robinson (@TashaRobinson) April 24, 2018


Another thing: I’ve been reviewing films for decades now, and I have never heard an audience react to the end of a film like the #InfinityWar audience reacted tonight. It was an astonishing experience. (And it’s another reason I want to see the film again in a packed house.)

— Tasha Robinson (@TashaRobinson) April 24, 2018

Okay then.

Avengers #InfinityWar is epic, emotional and most of all, shocking. Marvel just raised the stakes higher than you can believe. pic.twitter.com/KnqJICe7fC

Just an excuse to watch it multiple times.

#InfinityWar is a whole lot to process. I liked it a lot, and there’s so much that works, but it definitely is “Part 1.” The ending is amazing and worth the journey, but there is a LOT crammed into its run time. Overall really liked it but need a rewatch already. pic.twitter.com/3P3rd3ojHJ

— Terri Schwartz (@Terri_Schwartz) April 24, 2018

I really like the first line.

#InfinityWar is everything you want, nothing you expect. It’s funny, surprising, dark, filled with delightful interplay between characters never seen on screen before. I know many filmmakers say they are trying to make a sequel in the vein of Empire Strikes Back, this succeeds.

— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) April 24, 2018

Okay, remember people, stay till the very end.

Infinity WOW! #InfinityWar. Lots of payoffs. Stay till the very END. That’s all I’m saying. pic.twitter.com/ch7adyFK21

— Brian Tong (@briantong) April 24, 2018

We don’t even mind.

#InfinityWar may be the most expensive Hollywood movie ever designed to mess with its audience. People sure are going to sit through a lot of credits!

— erickohn (@erickohn) April 24, 2018

That’s a good idea, also that hashtag tho.

I’m gonna be pretty inactive on Twitter till I see #InfinityWar…hope y’all understand (and do the same)! #ThanosDemandsYourSilence pic.twitter.com/hijhx9PEHT

— Robbie Fox (@RobbieBarstool) April 24, 2018

A lot to unpack? We don’t even mind.

#AvengersInfinityWar is the MCU’s biggest soap opera ever, and that’s not a bad thing. Feels more like a sequel to Guardians, and you’ll get to see what makes a Mad Titan tick. We will have A LOT to unpack soon.

— Mike Sorrentino (@MikeJSorrentino) April 24, 2018

What is the ending? I need to know now.

The final minutes of AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR are heartstopping. Can’t wait for the next one. Marvel wins again. #AvengersInfinityWar #Avengers #InfinityWar

— Ben Barna (@sufferings) April 24, 2018

I will probably be the one clapping in the theatres.

From beginning to end, #AvengersInfinityWar is non-stop action. It’s really dynamic and jaw-dropping, but at times, it could have stopped for air and give us more substance on plot points. Loved it when the audience clapped as soon as #BlackPanther & #okoye entered the scene.

— Wilson Morales (@blackfilm) April 24, 2018

Captain America always brings it.

I saw #AvengersInfinityWar earlier tonight and I can say that it delivers. There’s a lot of really fun character interactions, some cool action moments (Thor’s powers, Iron Man’s suit), and a few powerful emotional beats. Most of the humor is 👌ðŸ?» Also Captain America is 💥 pic.twitter.com/WoZNPDpGXk

— Molly Freeman (@mollyrockit) April 24, 2018

Okay, we have some pros and cons.

MVPs: Thanos!!! Thor, most of the Guardians, Peter Parker, best ending of any Marvel movie, possibly the best end credits scene of any marvel movie.                                             Cons: Cg villains other than Thanos, teenage Groot, not enough black panther leads.

— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) April 24, 2018

Can’t wait to gasp.

I’ve left every Marvel movie with a sense of where the franchise was going. The strong “Avengers: Infinity War” is the first time where I’m utterly perplexed about what’s next. There were audible gasps at the NYC screening. pic.twitter.com/xouqNzh7ps
