The 'Avengers: Infinity War' release date has been moved up a week to April 27, and fans are loving it

Marvel Studios
  • In a Twitter exchange Thursday between Marvel Studios and Iron Man actor Robert Downey, Jr., Marvel announced that “Avengers: Infinity War” would be opening a week early.
  • The film is now set for an April 27 release date, with a new poster to show for it.

You’ll now be able to see “Avengers: Infinity War” a week earlier than expected.

Marvel Studios announced on Twitter Thursday that the film’s release date had been moved up to April 27. It was previously slated for a May 4 release.

The studio made the announcement during a “casual” Twitter exchange with Iron Man actor Robert Downey, Jr. Marvel Studios asked fans if they were ready to see the film on May 4, to which Downey replied “Any chance I could see it earlier?”

Marvel Studios then tweeted a new poster, similar to the first poster released for the movie but with the new release date.

The new release date puts a bit of distance between “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Deadpool 2,” which opens on May 18, and another Disney property “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” which opens May 25.

Whatever the reason, it’s clear that fans are thrilled at the news if Twitter reactions are any indication (especially Chance the Rapper).
