So, what are your plans for the weekend? A nice day out with the family? A hike up a small local mountain and a picnic with a great view? I’m sure plenty of people are doing just that but if you’re reading this site, you’re almost certainly setting aside a block of hours to seeing Zack Snyder‘s impossibly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and rightly so. The film is a major event and even those who are deeply skeptical about the scope of the film and Snyder in general (*raises hand*) will likely want to have an opinion about what will be the beginning of the Justice League franchise.
A few people, however, have already taken a long gander at the film via its premieres in New York and Mexico City over the last 48 hours or so. The first reactions via Twitter are gathered below, and the word is very, very good thus far. Unless you count someone clapping over Wonder Woman or opining that Ben Affleck is the best Bruce Wayne as spoilers, you should be just fine but if you’re sensitive to these matters, I’d suggest just waiting until you can see the film and then comparing with these lucky few. Let the praising begin!

Also, naysayers… Zack Snyder + Chris Terrio = WIN. You want a race, well DC may have just caught up with one movie. #BatmanvSuperman

Batman v Superman was great. Jesse Eisenberg’s performance in particular blew me away. #BatmanvSuperman
