The Malaysian press screening of Avengers: Endgame is only happening early morning tomorrow (Marvel Studios wants to keep everything hush hush), but the early social media reactions from those who were lucky enough to attend the world premiere in the US are in. As expected, they’re overwhelmingly positive. Was there ever any doubt? The film has been called an emotional roller coaster ride, “masterful” and “epic.”
Check out some of the 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.

#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

#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

#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.)

And of course, no early reaction will be complete without some Ben Mekler nonsense:
Bring the tissues – #AvengersEndgame is a tearjerker. From the opening moments that reckon with the fallout of The Snap to a heartbreaking twenty minute cello solo that I gotta say Chris Evans absolutely nails, this movie is more emotional than any Marvel, or superhero film, ever

Besides some of the reactions above, I’ve been mostly avoiding social media like the plague to avoid any accidental spoilers. I’ll be catching the film first thing tomorrow morning and be putting up my spoiler-free review on Lowyat.net in the evening.
Avengers: Endgame official synopsis:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, Avengers: Endgame.
