White Plains Reacts to Infinity War

By Melanie Varela


Avengers: Infinity War has been one of the most talked about films of 2018 so far. Surpassing Black Panther's presale ticket record, breaking the MCU Thursday record, and more since, Infinity War will stand as one of the most anticipated movies in history. Since so many people have seen the movie since the premiere, a mere review would simply not suffice, a collection of reactions from students and staff from WPHS was taken.
