In the wake of advance screenings, here's the early fan response to Batman v Superman

The rest of us won’t get to see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice until this weekend, but the studio has finally pulled back the curtain for some advance screenings. So, how’s the buzz?

According to a random smattering of tweets and posts from those apparently present at some of these screenings, the reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. Which isn’t much of a surprise, since most of the people getting to see a major tentpole early are understandably excited by that proposition in and of itself — so they’re typically already halfway sold into the hype cycle (see: early reactions to Deadpool, every other film).

Per the reactions, it sounds like Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman is a major asset, along with Ben Affleck’s take on Batman. The movie also sounds crazy ambitious, just in general.

Again: It’s only a tiny sample of viewers, many of whom were certainly geeked out to be seeing the movie early. But positive buzz is still positive buzz, and for a movie that has been plagued by some rumors of studio concern — this could be a sign of good things to come. Only time will tell, and thankfully, we don't have to wait long.

In the meantime, enjoy some ultra-early reactions to DC’s most ambitious film ever attempted and let us know what you’re expecting:
