Get ready for the ultimate showdown as the Avengers go up against Thanos, a power-hungry villain. It will be interesting to see if other studios scatter their movies to avoid getting crushed by Infinity War. Marvel Studios announced Thursday that their huge new Marvel Cinematic Universe entry is coming out a week early, opening on April 27, rather than May 4, as originally slated.
This also keeps "Avengers: Infinity War" a month away from another big Disney project when "Solo: A Star Wars Story" lands in theaters on May 25 during Memorial Day weekend. Now, audiences will get the chance to see the movie at more or less the same time. Marvel has just made an official new announcement about the movie which will definitely put a smile on your faces. Other than a Black Panther and Captain Marvel sequel, there's really no telling what's in store through 2022.More news: Korea issues Joseph Yun to retire
But it looks like Robert Downey Jr was impatient to see the film. With its earlier release date on April 27, Infinity War's stiffest competition would be the animated Animal Crackers, Geostorm director Dean Devlin's crime thriller Bad Samaritan, Amy Schumer's I Feel Pretty, and the Paula Patton thriller Traffik. Well, at least that is how Marvel Studios' wants present it as.
It also means that the U.S. date for Infinity War is in line with the movie's worldwide schedule.
For those unfamiliar, "Infinity War" will be one of the most unprecedented films in the superhero genre, bringing in the dozens of heroes the MCU has introduced since 2008 to team up and fight one common enemy.
