Following the worldwide premiere of The Avengers, several journos wasted no time tweeting their reactions to the film, according to Comic Book Movie, who have been tracking the tweets. While full scale reviews are embargoed, the overall reaction was positive. Very positive.
According to posters, the Hulk is surprisingly good, and the film — in typical Marvel tradition — contains a surprise scene after the credits are done.
Below are a few of the tweets thus far:
FirstShowing: The Avengers – Epic. EPIC! Everyone fights everyone, but it does deliver. Marvel’s movies get better every single one. Hulk! HULK!!
BadassDigest: AVENGERS is good enough to make me forgive IRON MAN 2.
AintItCool: THE AVENGERS. Finally, a Marvel film with a rousing finish. That third act is more than enough to make THE AVENGERS the best Marvel movie yet.
SlashFilm: I’d tweet about The Avengers but my body is still recovering from non-stop geeking out. So, so, so much fun (for the most part).
Variety: It’s the bomb. I could not possibly say enough. Not a false note. Innovative. BRUTAL. And goddamn funny. Hype = believe it.
SlashFilm: The Avengers is pretty epic. There is probably more action in this film’s climax than all the other Marvel movie combines!
Entertainment Weekly: Just got out of #Avengers premiere. Liked.
GeekDad: So much awesome.
Collider: Absolutely loved THE AVENGERS. Was smiling from beginning to end. Two things that made #THEAVENGERS amazing: the Hulk and the humor. Joss Whedon gets a 10 out of 10 on both of those.
Seth Green: So that was AMAZING. Like, double plus awesome. Thank you Joss Whedon for giving us all the #Avengers movie we deserve.
XXLMag: Just getting out of “The Avengers” world premiere. Thought the film was major. LOT of action, laughs and surprises. Hulk stole the show.
