"Avengers: Infinity War" Moves Up One Week, Distancing Itself From "Deadpool 2"

Still, excitement for Avengers: Infinity War is through the roof, so news that it's arriving sooner than expected is, quite simply, music to our ears. And instead of just casually revealing the new date in a trailer or a poster, it recruited Robert Downey, Jr. Spoilers are always a major issue when a movie as anticipated as Infinity War releases, and many find trying to avoid learning key points impossible because of the ubiquity of spoilers on social media. At least, you will if you're Robert Downey Jr.

Disney also set release dates for 28 untitled films through February 2023 from Marvel, Pixar and Disney live action.

In the staged chat between star and studio, Marvel announced that the movie would be out on April 27.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR will now release on April 27, 2018, worldwide-together. As for which seven films Marvel is teasing, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is most likely to take a 2020 release date since screenwriter James Gunn said so on Twitter.

Also, this clears up a little bit of the glut that was shaping up in May with Deadpool 2 having moved right between both Infinity War and Solo. "Avengers: Infinity War" releases in US theaters on April 27, 2018.

Some have maintained that the blockbuster season never really ends, and Black Panther cleaning up at the box office in February supports that. Rampage is out on April 20th, which is only a week before Avengers: Infinity War comes out.

For those of you who don't know, Avengers: Infinity War sees the Avengers and their super-hero allies trying to defeat the powerful Thanos. In that light, the six untitled movies listed for 2021 and 2022 could possibly feature sequels to Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, and Captain Marvel. The exchange also confirms that the pushed up release date is for the whole world, so if you were anxious it might be only in the United States, it isn't.
