‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Early Screening Reactions (And A New Clip) Have Arrived

Avengers: Infinity War premiered Monday night in Los Angeles, and lucky so-and-sos who got to see the movie early posted their reactions to social media overnight. Some of the film’s stars (Robert Downey Jr., Zoe Saldana, Paul Bettany, Pom Klementieff, and Tom Holland) also went on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to premiere the clip above, in which Bruce Banner tries to explain Thanos to Tony Stark while in Dr. Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum. The clip reveals the Marvel universe has a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor named after Tony Stark. Critics who saw the movie last night seemed to like it more than Doctor Strange likes Tony Stark’s ice cream flavor.

Avengers: Every Flavor of Ice Cream and Every Topping opens April 27th.
