Avengers: Infinity War US release moves forward to April

Disney moves Avengers: Infinity War forward a week for US fans

If you didn’t think you could wait until May for the US release of Avengers: Infinity War, you’re in luck: Disney has just pushed it forward a week to 27 April. This news obviously doesn’t affect UK fans at all as the film was coming out then anyway, but it’s still interesting.

Marvel Studios announced the news in an admittedly very corny Twitter thread with Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr this week:

Disney hasn’t given a reason for the move, but we’re presuming it has something to do with making as much money as possible.

The film stars Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man, Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr Stephen Strange, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord/Peter Quill, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautisa as Drax, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel as the voice of Drax, Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury and Josh Brolin as Thanos.

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.

Avengers: Infinity War is in UK cinemas from 27 April 2018. Get all the latest superhero movie news with every issue of SciFiNow.
