Now that King T’Challa’s reign is coming to an end, and Black Panther‘s grip on the box office is beginning to wane, Avengers: Infinity War has been crowned as the undisputed movie of the hour. And it’s small wonder why.
Between the incredible cast list, the culmination of 10 years’ worth of storylines and an unprecedented sense of scale, Infinity War is practically in a league of its own when it comes to superhero spectacle, and now that the fan screenings have begun, the first reactions are starting to pour out. While nothing’s been spoiled just yet (thankfully), everything we’ve heard so far has been tremendously positive and that continues tonight with Irish outlet Joe.ie, who caught 24 minutes of footage from the upcoming event movie.
According to them, Marvel fans are in for a real treat when they settle into the theater to watch Infinity War, as their spoiler-free reaction reads as so:
We saw 24mins of #AvengersInfinityWar today & now we just want to watch it ALL. It’s funny, the action is epic & the villains look spectacular. Plus, goatees! Groot! AND the sneak peek is more quotable than most feature-length films. #Marvel fans are in for an amazing treat
Exciting, right? Never before have we seen a superhero movie with the scale and mind-numbing scope of Avengers: Infinity War, which looks set to redraw the Marvel Cinematic Universe we know and love, opening up the field for a Phase 4 that is decidedly different from everything that has come before. Think cosmic adventures orchestrated by James Gunn and Co. and you’ll begin to get a sense of where the MCU is headed post-Avengers 4.
Staying in the here and now, though, and three weeks from today, Marvel Studios will be ready to hit the launch button on Joe and Anthony Russo’s Avengers: Infinity War, and the MCU will be changed forevermore.
