Despite the movie’s world-conquering run at the box office, there are still a lot of people out there who’ve never seen Avengers: Infinity War, but when the film became available on Netflix over Christmas, subscribers across the US were able to watch the defeat of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for the very first time.
You’ll likely recall earlier this year how the latest release from Anthony and Joe Russo left many a filmgoer shaken with its exceptionally high body count, and now that the movie has a whole new outlet on which to be witnessed, we’re seeing an entirely new wave of reactions on Twitter, be it from first-time viewers or those who just felt like taking the journey all over again:

Anyone who’s only just watched the film’s genocidal finale for the very first time won’t have long to wait before the cliffhanger gets resolved, with Avengers: Endgame now exactly four months away from release. That being said, with future projects confirmed for the likes of Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and Scarlet Witch, it’s pretty clear already that the sequel will find some way of reversing the deaths that resulted from Thanos’ purging of the universe.
How exactly the Decimation will be undone remains the number one question, with time travel being one popular fan theory that continues to make the rounds. Naturally, the team at Marvel Studios is staying quiet on the matter, but we’ll find out when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th, 2019. In the meantime, for anyone who needs a refresher on the tragic events that unfolded earlier this year, Avengers: Infinity War is still available to US users on Netflix.
