Overall Glowing Reactions To 'AVENGERS' Premiere

The Avengers has it's World Premiere last night in Hollywood and it looks like they have a giant hit on their hands (critically as well as financially). You may notice that this screening is more than two weeks before it's North American release date which seems to show off the confidence Marvel and Disney have. That confidence is backed up with glowing reactions from those who attended the event. Below are a few reaction Tweets and a posting from attendees of the premiere. Overall it seems like the first outright Marvel/Disney collaboration is a smashing success.

Ed Brubaker comic book writer (notably Captain America/Daredevil): "Avengers was awesome. Felt like Joss Whedon in all the right ways while still feeling like the best of Marvel. It's going to be really huge."

Edgar Wright director of Scott Pilgrim/Hot Fuzz: "The Avengers' is a big tub of popcorn heaven. A huge grin on my face throughout and much applause from the crowd too. Well done Mr. Whedon."

Damon Lindelof writer of Lost, Star Trek 2 and Prometheus: "The Hulk we have been waiting for has at last arrived. #AvengersFuckYeah"

Frosty from Collider.com:  "Absolutely loved THE AVENGERS. Was smiling from beginning to end. If you're a Marvel fan you're going to lose your shit in the theater."

Josh Dickey from Variety (normally very critical) : "My god Joss Whedon is going to be breathtakingly rich."

Peter from SlashFilm.com: "The Avengers is pretty epic. There is probably more action in this film's climax than all the other Marvel movie combines!"

Devin from BadassDigest.com (also very critical) : "AVENGERS is good enough to make me forgive IRON MAN 2."

Galactus from ComicBookMovie.com:  - For those who were worried about Joss Whedon helming this movie... You have been proven complete and total idiots. 

 - For those concerned that the large cast of characters would prove too much for one movie... NOT a problem. 

 - For those who think that underpowered Black Widow and Hawkeye would be underused and have smaller roles... Not so. 

 - For those worried that all the trailers, clips and commercials have shown all the good parts already... They didn't even scratch the surface. 

 - For those who don't believe THE AVENGERS will be THE comic book movie of the year... TDKR and Amazing Spider-Man will have to be surprisingly special to take the title.
