I so want to see it opening weekend but just canít see myself doing so at the theater wearing a mask especially since we have a great home theater. Now I just need to count down the 45 days til Disney plus access. Glad to hear itís amazing.

Looking forward to it. Greatly enjoyed Black Widow (the actresses as much as the story, of courseÖ) so I wonít be comparing the two, but Iím sure it stands up on its own as just about all Marvel films do.

Yeah no home theater here, my entertainment funds always seem get spent at a amusement park somewhere. The last time I bought a tv was after the release Pandora for 3D. ( still works!) We almost never go to the movies even before Covid they usually arenít IMO worth the hefty price tag. I will say this though there was definitely a scene that could be a hell of a good attraction.

Point taken - they are completely different films. It may have been the long wait for black widow but it was definitely not my favorite in the marvel universe.
My son is the Marvel nerd- while he has dragged me to see all the movies over the years- I just didnít expect how good this would be, for a causal fan that I had never expected them to go to that level with not so well known characters. The CGI & cinematography ( not sure if thatís the correct term ) was the best I have watched in a while.

We saw a preview recently when seeing Suicide Squad 2 (jus OK, BTW), and it really did look good.

Cheers.

My wife and I saw it last night, too. We both really liked it also. She liked it so much, that right after it was over, she was on the movie theater app buying 3 more tickets to see it again today. I have to work, but she's literally *taking our kids out of school* to take them to see it this morning.

She likes to spoil our kids once in a while and let them have some special quality time with her. She's a good mom.

Ditto. Might consider going to the earliest morning show on Monday in hopes we could have the theater to ourselves otherwise we'll wait until Mid-October.

Theatres I've gone to have been virtually empty. We tend to go to 6-6:45 types of shows. Also, we have food with us, so don't need masks while eating/drinking.

Cheers.

Yep, fortunately aside from Disney Springs of course masks not required at theatres around here. However, for instances where that is indeed the case I’d for sure be nursing popcorn and a drink the whole time, or I just wouldn’t go.
