The first reactions to Avengers: Endgame have arrived on Twitter, and they point towards the movie exceeding all expectations.
While we are going to have to wait for a few more days to watch Avengers: Endgame on big-screen, some critics were lucky enough to have already watched it at the movie's world premiere last night in Los Angeles. Marvel Studios has yet to lift the embargo on the highly-anticipated movie's full reviews, but it has allowed the critics to share their much-shorter, spoiler-free social media reactions.
And these reactions make it clear that the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe installment is far from a disappointment. In fact, some are of the same mind that it is one of the greatest superhero movies ever made. It's a tearjerker, as one would expect from a culmination of no less than 22 interconnected films released over the course of a decade. But the movie doesn't lack humor or action either.
According to one critic, most of the footage that we saw in the trailers and TV spots belong to the first 15 minutes of Avengers: Endgame's theatrical cut. So, there are tons of surprises in store for us in the movie that runs for over three hours. If another critic is to be believed, the six original Avengers are the standouts. Check out our collection of Twitter reactions below!
Imagine the best possible version of #AvengersEndgame and somehow the film still surpasses all expectations. I cried 5-6 times. It's the most emotional, most epic, MCU film. A tribute to ten years of this universe and holy shit the great fan service in this movie. Soooo good.

Imma try to say this without putting too much shade on my previous sexual encounters but #AvengersEndgame was more satisfying than most of them.
Fans prepare to be served.

So I just saw #AvengersEndgame, and you guys aren't ready for shiiiiit. All the theorizing didn't prepare you for this. I cried a lot, I flung my hands in the air and screamed out loud. It's incredible. #EndgamePremiereLA #Avengers #Endgame

#AvengersEndgame is a masterful epic – a true culmination of 22 films that not only concludes the story, but expands upon it. You'll learn more about the other movies while this one unfolds. If Infinity War is the brawn, Endgame is the brains. And wow, what an ending! pic.twitter.com/94ttBUQKJ0

#AvengerEndgame is an immensely satisfying payoff, not just to Infinity War but to all the films that came before. This is why the MCU. (And I say this as someone who was not especially enamored of Infinity War, FWIW.) â™¥ï¸??

Wow. #AvengersEndgame is staggering. It's surprising in ways I never saw coming and satisfying in ways I didn't realize I needed. It's kind of the ultimate gift to fans of the MCU. It's very long and has a few hiccups, but is everything you're hoping for and more. pic.twitter.com/RO97kw9fs5

#AvengersEndgame is every bit the masterpiece it deserves to be. It's extraordinary. It is a conclusion worthy of the greatest cinematic saga of all time! Congratulations to everyone who had anything to do with this film, or the 21 films before it. I am emotionally spent. pic.twitter.com/2Yiu3ZIimC

I quite liked #AvengersEndgame. Lively, well-written, funny and moves along very briskly considering just how much story there is. I may have even teared up.

Man #AvengersEndgame kicked my ass. It was an epic conclusion to 11 years of films. It had laughs, incredible action and absolute emotional rollercoaster. It was the series finale for these cast of characters that I had been hoping for. Congrats to all for pulling off the feat.

90% of the #AvengersEndgame footage that's been officially released is from first the 15 minutes: Other than the actual surprises, the biggest surprise to me was how funny it is
"” Aaron Couch (@AaronCouch) April 23, 2019
#AvengersEndgame is A LOT. Too much at times. But wow the payoff is huge. Left me proud to have invested over a decade in a franchise that delivers an inspiring exploration of what it means to be family & a hero. (Endgame also now has one of my favorite shots in the entire MCU.)

#AvengersEndgame is a fantastic way to close out this 22-film saga. Great action, great dramatic moments, and one helluva way to bring it all home. Truly moving and lots of awesome geek out moments. Make mine Marvel. pic.twitter.com/LPCNS88d7S

Still processing #AvengersEndgame and have to somehow put coherent thoughts together for our @IGN review tomorrow, but the only thing I can really say is it's a fitting culmination of a decade of cinema. Powerful, emotional, imperfect, but what a legacy. pic.twitter.com/l4mkxNZ2h5

Somehow, even under a layer of Hulk CG, Mark Ruffalo manages to look like he’s having the time of his life in #AvengersEndGame.

Don’t know how any @MarvelStudios fan walks out of #AvengersEndgame disappointed. Movie is loaded with incredible set pieces and tons of small character moments that leave you wanting more. An epic conclusion to 10 years of Marvel movies. Thank you to everyone that worked on MCU. pic.twitter.com/HbXkwuYL5y
