Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Marvel Studios have moved up their upcoming superhero film, Avengers: Infinity War release date to April 2018 from May 2018.
This is a surprising move, usually Marvel’s movies releases a week early in other territories but now the new release date is makes sure the movie will release on the same date worldwide.
Marvel made the right decision by moving up the release date, since there’s no real competition on April 27 and it gives a huge gap between Disney’s upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story and Avengers: Infinity War.
The film features an ensemble cast that includes Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Benicio del Toro, Tom Holland, Anthony Mackie, Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Paul Rudd and Don Cheadle.
“In the film, as the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos.
A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality.
Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.”
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, with a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely.
Produced by Kevin Feige.
Avengers: Infinity War is set to arrive in theaters on April 27, 2018, in IMAX and 3D. An untitled sequel is scheduled to be released on May 3, 2019.
