Thanks for no spoilers as I couldn't NOT read this. Hopefully I can sneak out to see it this weekend.

I was a DC kid and I suppose I'm a DC adult as I have no interest in any of the Marvel characters... aside from The Hulk. Only as a solo though.

Infinity War is enjoyable. But is it good? Eh....
Look, a movie like this shouldn't work. By all means, it should have been a shit show. And it's kind of miraculous that it's not. The character interactions are easily the best parts of the film, Thanos is solid, and Dr. Strange feels fresh and new. I had a good time while watching it and am interested in Part II. With that said...
The film's story is a series of B-stories. And the movie heavily relies on the fact, and assumes, that the film's audience both know and love the MCU. If you're tired of superhero films, then this movie is NOT for you. Furthermore, the humor is safe, boring and doesn't work most of the time (they're starting to drive Guardians into the ground). Plus there are no stakes. And honestly, that's my biggest problem with the film. Because -
If you have a character who can literally turn back time then nothing feels like it's permanent. Going into the film, we know that certain characters will survive because we know there is a Black Panther 2 film in the works.
Anyways, it's fun, but the whole franchise feels a little cold to me. I lost any investment I had in these characters a long time ago. So IMO, it's like watching someone else playing a video game like Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter. Different characters, different settings, but no real depth.
B- for me

I'm over them as well.
First, maybe second Ironman I enjoyed, but that's it.
I'm so glad other movies are still being made for other demographics.
Ma's just going to have to go see the superhero movies with hubby.

Managed to seclude myself from spoilers and saw it yesterday night.
