The highly-anticipated world premiere of Avengers: Endgame took place earlier this evening in Los Angeles and the first reactions of the movie have started flooding social media. As expected, the responses are overwhelmingly positive, with some even going the length of calling it the best superhero film ever released.
Leading up to this week, various reports of suggested monstrous box office tracking amounts, with some analysts thinking the movie could crack $300m domestically during its open weekend. The biggest domestic opening of all time currently belongs to Avengers: Infinity War, which brought in $257m over the course of its debut outing last May.
"It's unprecedented territory," Boxoffice chief analyst Shawn Robbins told ComicBook.com last week. "The numbers that are out floating around out there no matter where you look, it's on a level that I don't even think the most optimistic and/or sort of expected. It feels pretty reasonable, if there is such a thing, to say that it'll set a new record at this point."

Chris Evans’ review of #AvengersEndgame: “I cried like six times.”— Aaron Couch (@AaronCouch) April 23, 2019
#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— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) April 23, 2019

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.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) April 23, 2019
The scope of Avengers: Endgame is impossible to put into words. What Fiege & MCU achieved over last 10-years has lead to this gloriously masterful moment in cinema & it’s truly mind-blowing how beautifully paced this storytelling is. Perfectly balanced. As all things should be.— Kevin McCarthy (@KevinMcCarthyTV) April 23, 2019
#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— Sean Gerber (@MrSeanGerber) April 23, 2019
