Yes Marvel Cinematic Universe fans, “Avengers: Infinty War” is coming to theaters a week early.
Marvel Studios made the announcement yesterday that the new release date will be April 27th instead of May 4th.
The news was announced by a pretty playful back and forth on Twitter between Robert Downey Jr. and Marvel Studios with the result being Downey getting his wish of the movie being released early. Much to the delight of fans.
There’s no word on why Marvel decided to move the release date up, but the move gives it a solid two weeks in the box office before “Deadpool 2” and “Solo: A Star Wars Movie” hit theaters in May.
Are you pleased with the move to release “Infinity War” a week early?
