Alright, it’s been about a week since the release of Avengers: Infinity War. At this point, many of us have seen it and still plenty others who have not. So, if you have not seen the movie, do not proceed.
SPOILERS! SPOILERS! SPOILERS!
Moving on … I am quite amused at the “Infinity War Spoilers with No Context” memes that were created so quickly after the movie premiered. These are the only spoilers that I have no shame in sharing.
This one pretty much breaks my heart.

While this one sums up all the hate poor Star Lord is now receiving.

And who doesn’t love Parks and Recs chiming in on a heartbreaking moment like only Parks and Recs could?

There’s that moment when you realize The Simpsons predicted yet another thing…
#InfinityWar spoilers but with no context.
Why the Simpsons always on point tho? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/qBSWusmVOh

Then you’re left just kind of feeling…

You can find all the above and more on various social media platforms at this point. It’s probably been one of my favorite ways of getting through, knowing this giant secret that I just NEED to talk about. It’s a little sad how many people have used social media to spoil the movie, though. I felt guilty writing a spoiler-filled review because sometimes curiosity gets the best of us and we click the links we know we shouldn’t. So here’s your last chance to turn back if you have not seen Infinity War.
Alright, those of you still left, you know the pain we are all going through. The response to this truly epic movie has been incredible. Between the disdain for Star Lord’s role in half the universe ceasing to exist to all the speculation of, “who really died,” we have been left in the wake of a fandom mourning the loss of so many heroes. This isn’t something that we really deal with a lot. Good defeats evil. It is almost ingrained into us as children, that’s why we root for the heroes. That’s maybe what created heroes to begin with, the need to know that good will triumph.
Infinity War real talk (I'll try to be vague):
This is three times in a row now that they've made the best marvel movie yet. Anyone who says the studio is creatively bankrupt is just wrong
Now they have their "Luke I Am Your Father" moment. This'll be part of film history.

So here they are, some of the best (in my opinion) fan reactions to Infinity War.
The guy that summed up my review:

When you go see the movie a second time and it’s actually sadder

Whoever made this, I hate you (not really, but ouch)

And the love pouring in from other greats…

Remember that even through such a heart-wrenching movie, Marvel’s humorous dialogue almost steals the show.

For all these reasons and more, I am so very excited to see what happens in Avengers 4. I have already begun my speculation about how the Soul Stone will come into play but that is maybe best saved for a different day. For now, hope everyone had a wonderful time seeing the movie. Please feel free to leave your thoughts and reactions in the comment section below.
