After Marvel Studios finally unleashed the event movie on critics last night, the first Avengers: Infinity War reactions have hit social media (including our own!), and you can check them out below! There are NO SPOILERS, but if you want to remain completely in the dark in the movie, you may still want to steer clear. Those who are curious will also like to know the film only had ONE end credits scene, at the very tail end of some very long credits, so if you want the whole experience definitely stay until the very end.
An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Confirmed cast members for Avengers: Infinity War include Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olson, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Don Cheadle, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Sean Gunn, Tom Holland, Paul Rudd, and Josh Brolin.
Anthony and Joe Russo directed the film, which is produced by Kevin Feige. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee are the executive producers. Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay.
Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is opening in theaters on April 27. Then, the Avengers assemble again for the still-untitled fourth film, set for May 3, 2019
Those predicting #InfinityWar will beat #BlackPanther at the box office… doubtful. Rewatchability factor not even close to Coogler’s movie. It’ll be super front-loaded. It’s not a full meal, so audiences will likely have their fill of it until Part 4 resolves all next year.

Social media embargo has lifted on #avengersinfinitywar: I found it epic, satisfying, SURPRISING w/ LOT of crowd pleasing moments. Thanos is compelling, sympathetic. Henchpeople pose true threat. This is a culmination of decade of adventures. MVP is Thor. Unleash your Qs…
