Last week, Marvel Studios changed the date of the release of the Avengers: Infinity War movie from Star Wars Day, May the 4th to April the 27th. Just a week, but enough to cause chaos amongst those who had already planned their schedule. And since Marvel Comics and Marvel Studios hardly speak (apart from when Will Pilgrim writes Prelude comics) a lot of shuffling had to be done.
The first of such shuffles is that the collection of some of those Prelude comics, Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War Prelude, collecting the Marvel Comics/Marvel Studios collaboration comic that adapts previous movies and creates new scenes and stories canon to the MCU has also had its date changed – by two whole weeks.
Previously scheduled for the 4th April, it will now be out on the 21st of March.
One might expect a few other scheduled comics to be shuffling up as well, where possible.
