It finally happened, folks. Avengers: Infinity War has finally screened for audiences, and CinemaBlend was in attendance to get a first look. Of course, with this premiere screening out of the way, it begs one very important question: is the film any good? Well, CinemaBlend's own Eric Eisenberg has an opinion on the film, and he seems to think that it's an epic piece of superhero cinema. Eric took to Twitter and wrote:
That's some pretty high praise, and it promises a genuinely captivating blockbuster. Not only does Eric seem to think that Avengers: Infinity War delivers the scope and spectacle that fans are anticipating from the major Phase 3 epic, but he also asserts that Josh Brolin actually delivers the goods as Thanos. If true, this marks a major shift from one of the MCU's notable issues (in the eyes of some fans) as it shows us a bad guy who can match the appeal of the heroes.
The enthusiasm of Eric's tweet was similarly shared by a tweet offered up by Comicbook.com's Brandon Davis. Moreover, Brandon also noted that Avengers: Infinity War did a fantastic job of balancing its tones and delivering humor and darkness in equal measure. He wrote:
But what about spoilers? It's been a huge undertaking as Marvel Studios has endeavored to avoid spoilers for the film, but Collider's Steve Weintraub seems to think that audiences will be rewarded by avoiding spoiler-filled reviews and going in cold. In his own tweet, Steve wrote:
Finally, we come to a reaction from Comingsoon.net's Jenna Busch. Like the previous posts, Jenna notes the boldness of the material and the importance of avoiding spoilers in order to preserve the integrity of the film itself. However, she also goes one step further to note that the film actually delivers a story that defies belief. Her tweet says:
Of course, that's merely a handful of reactions. More are sure to come as more people get a chance to see Avengers: Infinity War, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for other reactions that inform the overall audience take on the movie.
So, with these reactions in mind, it sounds like the Marvel Cinematic Universe may have yet another winner on its hands with Avengers: Infinity War. We will just have to wait and see how audiences respond to the film when it finally premieres on the big screen, so make sure to avoid spoilers for as long as possible and catch the movie on its April 27 wide release!
