Avengers: Infinity War Iron Man Thanos

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building up to the arrival of Thanos (Josh Brolin) for the past decade, it's probably safe to say that AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is going to be one hell of an event, and fans were obviously quite eager to snag their tickets when they went on sale early this morning. According to Deadline, INFINITY WAR has already broken advance ticket sales records on Fandango to become the best-selling superhero movie ever - and it only took six hours. Most impressive.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR ticket sales are tracking well above BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE and JUSTICE LEAGUE, and have also beaten out the previous record holder, BLACK PANTHER. In a Fandango survey of those who snapped up AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR tickets this morning, moviegoers said:

–97% can’t wait to see how dozens of heroes work together in the same film
–94% are excited to see different franchise characters (Guardians, Avengers, etc.)  meeting one another for the first time.
–92% see “Infinity War” as the culmination of all of the MCU films before it.
–87% have seen all of the MCU movies.
–71% saw Black Panther on the big screen.
–60% claim Black Panther made them even more excited to see Avengers: Infinity War.

Much like most of you, I've been looking forward to AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR for some time, and the stellar trailer released this morning has only pushed my hype to new levels. There's no way that can backfire, can it? Have any of you already snagged your tickets to AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR?
