Can't wait for Avengers: Infinity War? We have some good news: The film will now arrive (stateside) one week earlier than expected. Instead of the original release date of May 4, the film will assemble in cinemas on April 27.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the latest outing for the Avengers (directed by Joe and Anthony Russo) will open "day and date around the globe," which pretty much means the same day and time, everywhere. According to them, this wil reduce "the possibility of spoilers marring the experience for North American audiences."
This is a change of pace for Marvel Studios, as their biggest summer tentpoles have always come out in May. This is only true domestically, however, as they regularly open a week earlier overseas. The new domestic release date will make sure everyone is getting the film at the same time.
It's good news all around— there will be no spoilers to worry about, and if you're in the states, you'll have one week less to wait. Marvel Studios has already begun the year with the incredible success of Black Panther — another outing for the Avengers will almost certainly allow them to continue skipping down the vibranium-covered road of success.
It bears repeating: Change your calendars! Captain America, Tony Stark, Thanos, T'Challa, Shuri, and almost every other Marvel character you've ever heard of will be in theaters everywhere when Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27. Dormammu, we'll be there to bargain.
