The First Reactions On 'Avengers: Endgame' Are Out & Frankly We're Kaafi Overwhelmed

A ticketing platform announced how Avengers: Endgame saw more than a million bookings in under 24 hours, creating a record for a release in India.

An era is about to end. When Avengers: Endgame releases this Friday, it is officially going to culminate (arguably) Hollywood’s biggest spectacle – the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). With close to 76 characters taking part in a film that took place in at least three different planets, Infinity War beautifully set the stage for Endgame to climax like a true magnum opus. And with the Endgame premiere happening barely a few hours ago, the first reactions around the film have begun to come in. And, there is no doubt… that the hype is strong with this one.

Even some of the most discerning critics in Hollywood haven’t been able to contain their feelings, allowing themselves an outlet in a tweet or two. Being described as the ‘most emotional’ films made by Marvel, many tweets have mentioned how a majority of the audience left the premiere with tears in their eyes. It’s a culmination on 11 years and 22 films, after all. So many of those first cards, that were laid out more than a decade ago, are about to see one dramatic end.

Endgame has been appreciated for its humour, which doesn’t seem like the automatic choice of tone for a film beginning in the aftermath of a genocide. But anyone familiar with the works of the Russo brothers (Director-duo) like Community, know how they can be morbidly funny. There’s also confirmation by a few tweets that almost all the footage we’ve been subjected to, thanks to the films 15 trailers/supercuts/superbowl cuts are from the film’s first 15 minutes.

Just like Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame is expected to take the Indian fans by storm. A ticketing platform announced how Endgame was the first film to have seen more than a million bookings in under 24 hours, creating a record for an Indian release. There are unconfirmed reports of most multiplex chains witnessing a 90-95% occupancy in theatres across the country, through the weekend. Infinity War touched the other-worldly figure of $2 billion worldwide (only achieved previously by James Cameron & Star Wars: A Force Awakens). If the hype is to be believed, Endgame will only be bigger.

It’s the end of an era on April 26, things are about to change forever.
