Marvel Studios is bring Avengers: Infinity War to theaters sooner! All Robert Downey, Jr. had to do was ask. It will now be released on April 27!

This is a great move for Marvel. It provides an additional weekend for Infinity War to have all to itself before Deadpool 2 lands on May 18.

Avengers: Infinity War will be released everywhere in the world on April 27. This will be only the second time a Marvel Studios movie gets an April release in North America (Captain America: The Winter Soldier – 2014).

You can see the whole exchange between Downey and Marvel Studios that led to this move below.
