‘Avengers: Endgame’ First Reactions Are in and People Love It: ‘Fans Are Going to Go APESH–‘

Yeah we’re jealous too

Avengers Endgame

Most of us have to wait until “Avengers: Endgame” hits theaters Thursday night to find out how Earth’s Mightiest Heroes bounce back from Thanos’ finger-snap in “Infinity War,”  but not the lucky bastards who were invited to the Marvel film’s gala premiere Monday night in Los Angeles.

That premiere ended at 10 p.m. PT, and so did the social media embargo, so you know what that means: Twitter is now flooded with reactions.

So what did they think? Are people who saw it happy and satisfied with what appears to be the conclusion of the original Avengers’ story? Do they hate it? Don’t worry everyone, if the word out of the premiere is anything to go on, you’re going to love “Avengers: Endgame.” (Whew!)

For the most part, reactions are ecstatic. Peter Sciretta of Slashfilm said the film exceeds “the best possible version” of itself.

TV writer Natalie Abrams said the film is “so amazing I cried… many times.”

Meanwhile, TheWrap’s Umberto Gonzales said, “I laughed, I cried (multiple times), I screamed.”

And Joel Meares of Rotten Tomatoes put it simply: “Fans are going to go APES—.”

But not everyone gave directors Anthony and Joe Russo’s superhero film a 10 out of 10. Scott Mendelson of Forbes said that though the film has “plenty of fan service… and plenty of wit,” it also “doesn’t make a ton of sense.”

But that’s an outlier. See the reactions below:




Meanwhile, while you’re waiting for the film to hit theaters, why not catch up on some reading?

Here are our thoughts after that exciting trailer from a few weeks back. Here’s what we think those white suits mean. And remember how Carol Danvers got her superpowers from the Tesseract in “Captain Marvel”? Here is why we think that matters for “Endgame.”
