Marvel has moved the release date for Avengers: Infinity War up one week, everywhere. You heard us, everywhere.
Marvel Studios has been building up to Infinity War for a decade now, and fans are understandably excited. Anticipation is running high, and while marketing is still in the early stages, fans are desperate for more.
We were only a few weeks away from the film’s release, however, the date has just got a lot closer for some. The announcement of a world release on April 27th came as part of exchange between Marvel Studios and arguably their biggest star, Robert Downey Jr., who politely asked the studio if the film could be released on the same day all over the world.
That’s a FANTASTIC idea! Done.

While this is undoubtedly great news for fans in the US, it actually doesn’t change things for international fans – for instance, here in the UK, we were already getting the film on this date. So, basically, Marvel have just made it so the US doesn’t feel too hard done by.
The change, while ideal for garnering more interest from fans, is likely more of a ploy from the studio to boost the opening weekend’s profits. However, on the positive side, this change will protect the film’s plot, as no one outside of the press will know spoilers that could surface online.
Avengers: Infinity War will release globally on April 27th.
