Avengers: Endgame just had its global premiere last night and now it looks like the film’s review embargo has finally been lifted, revealing the film as a major hit among critics.
Making its big debut on Rotten Tomatoes, the second and final entry in Joe and Anthony Russo’s two-part Avengers movie is proudly sitting with a near-flawless score, coming up at 98% Fresh on the review aggregation website. Rotten Tomatoes has also taken to Twitter to announce the film’s score with more than three thousand netizens discussing the film’s reviews on the thread.
Endgame is now Marvel’s highest-rated film, one point ahead of Ryan Coogler’s critically-acclaimed Black Panther. Of course, the film only has 51 reviews as of today. The Avengers: Infinity War sequel could very well see a downward or upward trend as the film continues its cinematic run – though we’re quite certain that the film will fare well as it marches onward.
This definitely adds to the hype for Endgame. Not only does the film serve as a follow-up to Infinity War, but it also serves as the final chapter of the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, culminating the last ten years of the franchise.
There’s a lot riding on Endgame, and it looks like the film is set out to exceed expectations.
Not only does the film have great chances at becoming a critical success, but projections also indicate that Endgame could very well make more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office during its opening weekend. That’s a whole lot more than Infinity War’s $640.5 million opening weekend haul.
Avengers: Endgame premieres this Friday, April 26.
