Last night, Marvel's The Avengers held its world premiere in Hollywood, in advance of its theatrical release May 4. I was one of the lucky few (hundreds) in attendance last night, and I, like seemingly everyone else, absolutely loved director Joss Whedon's superhero ensemble. While my full review is under embargo for now, lets take a look at some of the reactions from my colleagues and others who attended last night's premiere, which was held at both the El Capitan Theater and the Grauman's Chinese Theater. Yes, the premiere was so big it had to be held in TWO theaters!

"The #Avengers is sprawling and fun, if a bit long. All the heroes mesh remarkably well. Though @clarkgregg just about steals it."
