First reactions for Avengers: Age of Ultron arrive; spoiler alert: it's good

04.10.2015

The first press-screening of AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON was held last night and while full reviews are embargoed for a time yet, that hasn't stopped the lucky bastards from flocking to Twitter to let us know what they thought of Marvel's newest blockbuster. The answer...may surprise you; or not, I'm not telling you what to think. Just scroll down already.

We'll keep this updated as more first impressions come in but I think it's safe to say that the majority of people seemed to like AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. Mind you, they could just be excited that they get to rub it in our faces that they got to see the film three weeks early. Whatever, I'm not bitter.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON opens on May 1 for us peasants.

meh

Hawkeye? Really? Give me a break. Renner blows. Guy has no range. I thought the movie was about Ultron. The villain is and always is the most important factor for movies like these. Here lately the villains have been pretty weak in the MCU movies.

I agree about Renner. Is he taking notes from Keanu?

Twitter seems kinda pointless for movie reviews with the character limits. Nice to see Age of Ultron getting good reviews so far. Great to see Hawkeye has a much bigger role this time, considering how limited he was through most of the first one. Can't wait to see it!

Yeah, I get that there are are good reviews. That's great. But to completely deny all the negative tweets that are out there as well? Even CinemaBlend acknowledged those.

It is odd that they were omitted but to be honest only one of them was REALLY negative. One said he liked it but didn't love it (not exactly a BAD review). One said "bigger, more complex, darker, more action packed than the first film, but ultimately not as much fun" (again not really BAD). The only bad one that I know of consisted of three tweets from David Ketchum who apparently hated GOTG which I loved. Hmmmm. I remain optimistic.

I'm there opening weekend no matter what, but these early reviews really mean nothing to me. I saw some of the same positive reviews for iron man 3 and I thought it was the weakest MCU film. But I saw positive ones for guardians and I agree that movie was great. So really, this can probably go either way, but I'm hoping it'll be great.

Yet.....

....some of these sound like nice ways of saying "it had good parts, but a lot of areas seeking improvement." Besides when has "a lot going on" been a good thing? This clutter of characters has been a complaint amongst readers here for other non Marvel movies. I hate to think people on this site pick and choose which films are exempt from errors!

There are a lot of tweets out there saying this movie is one of the worst entries of the MCU so far, so it's not as if it's being universally praised here.... A lot of those negative tweets cited exactly with GinDare is saying; "a lot going on, too cluttered, etc." I've got to agree with GinDare87 here.

I just hope all the Hawkeye love finally gets him in the position to finally get his own movie or at least a Black Widow movie!

Agreed. Scarlett Johansson is beyond ready for a Black Widow solo movie. If she was a dude, it would be in production by now.

Hawkeye is my favorite Marvel character, but, honestly, I just can't see either of them carrying their own movie. They're just better supporting characters. They've nearly always been that in Marvel comics history (though the ongoing Hawkeye solo series is awesome) and they're just kind of designed that way.

I would love to see Hawkeye get a co-starring role in a Cap or Iron Man movie though. Like Black Widow in IM2 and CA:WS or Falcon in CA:WS. They have totally wasted him to this point.

If they hadn't cast such prominent film stars-- who I can't imagine would willingly take on a TV role-- the would both make awesome guest stars for a run on AoS. Especially with the Hawkeye/Mockingbird history. Can't imagine that happens though.

Just makes the anticipation for this film that much greater. And am psyched that Hawkeye has a much bigger, vital role this time around and has some of the better lines as well.

Sounds like what I've been saying.....

It's The Empire Strikes Back of the Marvel world. Critics will like it more than the original, hardcore fans are going to be blown away, but it's not going to have the same mass-appeal. The one constant you see through most of the reviews (positive and negative) is that it's "darker," "overstuffed," and not as much fun as Avengers. So it's a more serious, adult comic book movie. The problem is, comic book movies (for the most part) rely on families with small kids attending to make the big

The problem is, comic book movies (for the most part) rely on families with small kids attending to make the big bucks, and this one is not going to see the kind of repeat business the last one saw. It'll make hundreds of millions, but I'd be shocked if this cracked a billion, let alone reached the popularity of the last one.

You'd be 'shocked'? It's going to easily reach a billion, and then some.

I took my daughter to see Avengers 4 times in theaters (including once in IMAX). I guarantee I won't be taking her 4 times to see this. If you think I'm the only one, I'm pretty sure you're mistaken.

Look up the box office for Star Wars vs the "better" Empire Strikes Back. People underestimate how much money comes in from parents bringing their kids to films (over and over).

dont post negative review ?

Scott Mendelson @ScottMendelson
Without getting too negative (because it's not remotely all bad), #AvengersAgeofUltron is the weakest Phase 2 Marvel movie.

I was already excited to see this movie, but these early "reviews" for lack of a better word, just increased my excitement. I was looking at a list of the big blockbuster/summer epics coming out this year and there aren't too many. Aside from AoU, Ant-Man, Mad Max, and Furious 7 there aren't a lot that I'm itching to see. So I'm glad this one has started off to a great success.

Lmao! That means absolutely nothing other than that you are determined to hate people who like Marvel. So in fact your comment says more about you than anybody else. What's your problem with them?
