So far, fans seem to like "Avengers: Infinity War" even more than the critics did. But they're also feeling very, very emotional.

When are you seeing it? If you saw "Avengers 3" Thursday night or Friday day, you're probably a Marvel superfan. Many more fans will watch the movie this opening weekend, and a few will probably try to hold off until the crowds die down, seeing it next week or the week after, etc. It'll be in theaters for a while, and we all know it.

Since the Thursday preview crowd is composed of the true Marvel faithful, you can't be surprised that they showed up in force and were completely floored by "Avengers 3."

And so "Avengers: Infinity War" is already breaking records for Marvel, if not Thursday records in general:

According to Deadline, "Avengers 3" made $39 million Thursday night, beating "Avengers 2" ($27.6M), "Black Panther" ($25.2M), and "Captain America: Civil War" ($25 million).

However, it's still the fourth-best Thursday opening ever behind two "Star Wars" movies and the final "Harry Potter" film -- "The Force Awakens" ($57M), "The Last Jedi" ($45M), and "Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($43.5M).

Worldwide, "Avengers: Infinity War" has already earned $95 million in its first two days, and some reports estimate it could make over $500 million at the global box office by the end of the weekend.

As of Friday afternoon, fan and critic reviews are still rolling in. But the movie currently has an 85 percent rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, with an audience score of 94 percent from about 20,000 users. The Metascore is currently 68 (compared to 88 for "Black Panther"), with a user score of 9.0. Over at IMDb, 65,000 users have rated "Infinity War" very high with a current score of 9.2/10.

It's possible fans who aren't as hardcore as the Thursday night/Friday day crowd won't have similar extreme reactions, but here are some fresh reports from fans:


We may all need therapy before "Avengers 4" opens next year.
