Avengers: Infinity War Release Date Moved Up to April 27th

Well this is surprising. It looks like we’re all getting Avengers: Infinity War a little earlier than we originally thought. In a Twitter exchange with the official Marvel Studios account, Robert Downey Jr. petitioned the studio to release the movie a week earlier.

Other sources, including The Hollywood Reporter, are confirming that the movie will release a week earlier now. Does this mean Disney has something big planned for Star Wars Day now that Avengers: Infinity War isn’t dropping on May the 4th? Is this them giving Untitled Deadpool Sequel a bit of an easier time at the box office now that it is competing with the third week of Infinity War instead of the second? There are rumors that Comcast has backed off the deal for 20th Century Fox — are the studios playing nice? Who knows and who cares — we get Infinity War a week early.

Summary: As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

Avengers: Infinity War, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Chadwick Boseman, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Bradley Cooper, Sean Gunn, and Anthony Mackie. It will be released on April 27th.
