Following the box office success of Black Panther, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been eager to see how the highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War would follow suit. Monday evening marked the world premiere for the superhero blockbuster, and now early reviews are rolling in.
As seen in previous teasers and trailers, Infinity War follows on from the events in Captain America: Civil War, in which the Avengers team were torn apart.
