It’s finally here. After suffering our own ‘snap’ at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, we’ve had to wait a year for the dust to settle, the theorising to reach fever pitch, and for Tom Holland not to give anything away in interviews.
Avengers: Endgame had its L.A. premiere in Los Angeles last night, and with that came the first reactions to Marvel’s 22 film, decade in the making superhero opus, a spoiler free selection of which you can read below:

#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 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 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.)

This can’t be understated: #AvengersEndgame is everything you want it to be and more. I am absolutely floored. A perfect reflection on the last 11 years that pays off everything in the best way possible. Without question my new favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Stunned. pic.twitter.com/5LvFw9UEBQ

The full review embargo lifts this evening, shortly after Endgame has screened to UK critics, and just over a day before multiplexes begin bracing themselves for the film’s general release.
