The first press screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron was held tonight in Los Angeles and New York, and Disney is apparently so confident in the film that there is no social media embargo for any critic attending these screenings. As such, there are quite a few reactions hitting Twitter.
Here are the ones I could find over the past half-hour, and they’re all uniformly very positive. I don’t think anything is particularly spoilery here, but if you want to go in completely cold, I’d turn away.
Avengers: Age of Ultron: An entire “phase” in Soylent brick form. More nerd plot, more spectacle, more sarcasm. Feeling good dizzy.

Just saw AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON. Soooooooo many characters and soooooo much going on, I can’t believe it’s coherent, let alone so fun. — Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) April 10, 2015
And out of all the AGE OF ULTRON chaos, somehow Hawkeye gets the best role in the movie. AND the best line of the movie, maybe the series.

Avengers 2 is both an amazing sequel and a fantastic setup for the rest of the MCU. So nerdy in the best possible way. — Mike Sampson (@mjsamps) April 10, 2015
Whedon stuffs Avengers Age of Ultron with an impossible amount of great geekiness. Sometimes it feels like too much, but he pulls it off!

AVENGERS AGE OF ULTRON is loaded with insane action, great character moments, and funny dialogue. Joss did the impossible again.

I’ll add any others of note as they come in! We’re less than a month away!
