Avengers: Infinity War Release Moved Up to April 27, 2018

Today Marvel announced that it was moving up the release of Avengers: Infinity War to April 27, 2018, which should now make it a global release. This is different than most other MCU films, which typically open a week or two earlier in Europe before opening in the United States. I’m not sure why it got moved up, but it did, and will no longer release on May 4th.

The official announcement for this date move played out on Twitter in a fun way with RDJ and Marvel. I’m guessing it was all staged, but either way the stunt works, and feels genuine. Basically, RDJ replied to a Marvel tweet about the movie asking to see it earlier with friends, to which the Marvel Twitter replied of course if he was talking about his co-stars. But then RDJ asked if the entire world could come along, and the Marvel Twitter obliged. PR stunt? More than likely, but as with all things MCU it felt natural.

Here’s to seeing the next Avengers movie one week early!
