The First Reactions from the Avengers: Infinity War World Premiere
The highly anticipated Avengers: Infinity War will open in theaters everywhere this Friday with early screenings on Thursday night, however, tonight was the film’s World Premiere in Hollywood. In preparation for the event, Marvel Studios shut down a portion of Hollywood Blvd to set up a three-block-long tunnel that guests walked through in order to get to the Dolby Theater. Inside the tunnel was various costumes and props from the past 10 years of Marvel movies including Thanos’ hand. It looked like quite a sight and I am sure the Marvel fans who were lucky enough to attend the premiere were in fanboy and fangirl heaven as they anxiously awaited the start of the film.
I must commend Disney and Marvel Studios for doing such a great job building the hype surrounding this film without giving anything away. I can’t wait to see the film tomorrow morning because I honestly have no idea what to expect from it. There are rumors that multiple people will die but these rumors were, of course, never confirmed by anyone even at the press conference and various interviews that took place over the weekend. There are also other rumors that with the Disney and Fox deal now underway that some of the Fox characters may show up in the film.
I still can’t believe that I sat through an hour-long press conference yesterday and didn’t get a single hint as to what I should expect from the film. The only thing I learned at the event was that there were apparently various versions of the script handed out so none of the cast knew how it all played out. While that was probably just a lie to keep their mouths shut, I would love to believe that it was the truth since it would be awesome for all these actors to experience the film as though they were fans.
Anyway, without any further delay, here are some of the first reactions from the Avengers: Infinity War World Premiere:
“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.

#AVENGERS: #InfinityWar is the most thrilling, action-packed film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Focusing on deeper, emotional beats, while retaining their classic charm, IW is both familiar & different in such a GREAT way. #Thanos is FANTASTIC!
Full review at 6PM EST.

Had the pleasure of watching #Avengers: #InfinityWar. One of the most unique MCU films, IW has a distinct Marvel/Russo feel, while also bringing a TON of emotional layers, dodging many MCU tropes, & carried by a magnificent villain in #Thanos

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

Avenger: Infinity War is a spectacle. It’s enormous. It’s bigger than anyone is ready for and it’s an absolute roller coaster.
It’s dark. It’s fun. It’s heavy. It’s thrilling. Infinity War is unlike anything that has ever come before it.

#1. Even if you’ve watched every trailer, you have no idea what’s coming. #2. You and whatever crowd you see it with will audibly gasp at the end. #3. Marvel just fixed their villain problem, cause #Thanos is one bad mofo. #infinitywar #avengers

#AvengersInfinityWar: #Marvel puts it all on the table and wipes it off. Stress-inducing, full of dread, darker than usual, yet, funny as hell and super entertaining. Terrifying Thanos razes the ground without mercy. Blockbuster noise? Yes, but with emotional stakes attached. pic.twitter.com/3zWP5LtCCk

#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.

You are not ready for what #AvengersInfinityWar is about to bring. I have so many emotions… This is a roller coaster filled with twists and turns. If you haven’t bought your ticket, what are you doing? Go. See. It.

Holy Hell. Avengers: Infinity War is the real deal. Was left breathless sitting in the theater. Real consequences, stunning moments, awesome character interaction, and some BIG and often devastating surprises. Oh, and Thanos is terrifying and amazing. Damn. pic.twitter.com/WWhsT12GTa

#AvengersInfinityWar: Despite some truly thrilling moments, feels like less than the sum of its parts. A definite step down after that epic run of GotGV2 / Spidey / Thor 3 / Black Panther, but what else did I expect?
