Marvel Moves “Avengers: Infinity War” Release Date to April 27

It looks like the Avengers will be assembling one week earlier than expected!

Today, Marvel Studios moved the release date for their upcoming film Avengers: Infinity War to April 27. Originally planning for release on May 4, Marvel broke the news to fans through an entertaining Twitter conversation with Robert Downey Jr., who plays Tony Stark/Iron Man.

An earlier release date will better allow fans to enjoy the film without having to endure a week of potential spoilers from those in different countries that have already watched it at earlier dates. An April release date will also allow Disney to monopolize the early summer box office season as well as have breathing room between films. After Infinity War, Fox’s Deadpool 2 will release on May 18 followed by Lucasfilm’s SOLO: A Star Wars Story on May 25.

Avengers: Infinity War, the 19th film installment of the “Marvel Cinematic Universe”, will be the first Marvel Studios film following its successful, socially impactful Black PantherInfinity War will have the longest runtime in the MCU at approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes. The film will also showcase over 70 characters, including well-known non-Avengers such as Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).
