VIDEO & 360 PHOTO: Captain America Civil War is Marvel-ous knockout - FANS VERDICT
Attention! Get ready to salute Captain America Civil War - it's notÂ just super...it's superior to any other superhero film.
Who says so? Well fans and critics alike, including most of the 1,600 cinemagoers who poured out of a midnight launch screening at Cineworld Sheffield.

They stayed up into the wee small hours, for this much hyped punch up - like some Las Vegas heavyweight contest - and they were unanimous that it's the best film Marvel has ever made.
Yes, there will be comparisons with the recent Superman v Batman. This has team Captain America battling team Iron Man, sparked by a public outcry to govern the band of global good guy vigilantes.
But where DC remained dark, moody and by no means family friendly, this latest in the Captain America saga is in a different league.
Civil War is quite simply epic family entertainment, action packed, with spectacular special effects and super one-liners. It dares to have a laugh and a chuckle at the expense of its cast, which makes it fun. It has a heart and soul. A knockout.
There are no baffling sub plots and it all makes perfect sense, why the Avengers are divided and why Captain America and Iron Man are out to knock each other's block off. But no huge spoilers here.
In essence, this is the latest Avengers film, minus the Hulk, but with Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, and a host of others returning for the new film.
That's not all. Look out for guest appearances from Ant-Man, Hawkeye, Vision, Black Widow, Black Panther, Falcon, War Machine and even Spider-Man drops in!
I gave it a Marvel-ous nine out of ten. Here's what fans thought - see out video report online - as they left the cinema in the wee small hours, as some of the first people anywhere to see the film everyone is raving about.
Kieran Waite, aged 21, of Rotherham, said: "Amazing. Really good. It was like a comic book straight onto the screen, really good."
Jack Hallam, 17, of Killamarsh, said: " It was amazing. The best film I've sen this year so far. Best adaptation of all the superheroes, Spiderman - all of them. It was good all round,. I really enjoyed it."
Courtney Groom, 18, Sheffield, said: "Absolutely brilliant. It was everything I was expecting and more. The characters were just the best thing."
Joshua Grundy, 18, of Rotherham, said: "It was great, absolutely amazing. I love surprises and it just wowed me the whole way through."
Reece Jenkinson, 18, of Rotherham, said: "I think the visual effects and 3D was really good on this film, compared to others. It's full of surprises. I'm left speechless."
Baber Alam, 22, of Rotherham, said: It was an absolutely fantastic movie. I'm looking forward to the next. All the Captain America movies are spot on. They've made me a Marvel fan."
Paul Brady, 48, of Clay Cross, leader of Chesterfield based cosplay group Superheroes - a fundraising group who came dressed as their favourite comic book heroes to have photos with fans in the foyer - he turned up as Captain America. And he as full of praise for all the on screen talent.
He said: "Compared to the film, we ain't nobody. It was brilliant. I loved it. I really, really did. Everybody should go and see it.
"Marvel is the best and it's proved it tonight. Absolutely fantastic, please go and watch it. If I had five thumbs I would give it five thumbs up."
Gareth Davies, 45, of Doncaster, who also came with The Superheroes, dressed as the Winter Soldier, said: "I thought it was really good.I will be telling all my friends to go watch it.A damn good film. Marvel films are just going off the scales, with how good they are lately. DC has got a lot of catching up to do."
Dave Vaughan, 32, Operations Manager at Cineworld Sheffield, said: "We've had over 1,600 people, showing it in eight screens, including 4DX, both our VIP screens, in standard two and 3D and of course in our IMAX with laser screen.- there's only two of those in the UK.
"Parts of Civil War was filmed with IMAX cameras devised for laser so it's been showing it off to its maximum potential. Another great night. And with all the Superheroes characters here, we've had a Civil War in ur foyer."
