Early screenings and Twitter reactions are rapidly becoming a major part of the pre-release marketing for movies these days. This year, we've been able to see what fans thought of Deadpool and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, days or weeks ahead of their premieres. And now, Captain America: Civil War joins that list.
Disney held special screenings for critics and fans over the weekend, and consensus is that Civil War is going to be worth the price of admission. Here's what a few people have been saying on Twitter:
