When Does 'Avengers: Infinity War' Come Out? Release Date Changed

When Does 'Avengers: Infinity War' Come Out? Release Date Changed

Avengers: Infinity War is expected to be Marvel's biggest movie ever, not just in terms of sheer budget or numbers, but in the size of expected box office receipt as well.

Marvel revealed the change in release date today on Twitter when Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr. asked the studio if it would be possible for he and friends - meaning the entire world - to see the film earlier.

Although Marvel's latest sensation was pushed down to the third spot on Wednesday following the arrivals of "The Princess and the Matchmaker" and "Little Forest", the box office king has sold a total of 4.8 million tickets since its release on February 14.

"Avengers: Infinity War" hits theaters on May 4. It will kick off a story that is expected to be wrapped up in the fourth Avengers movie, which is now scheduled to launch on May 3rd, 2019.

In fact, the Marvel sequel won't face any major competition until May 18, when its own Deadpool sequel arrives from 20th Century Fox, followed by the May 25 debut of Disney's Solo: A Star Wars Story.




The trailer in question showcased Iron man's new suit, Captain America's new shield as well as Superman's new suit.

Avengers: Infinity War was originally set for released May 4, so the new date pushes the movie up by one week. With Avengers: Infinity War being the culmination of the universe thus far, Kevin Feige claims it will wrap up all these plot threads.

As vague as that may be, it's enough to get fans going and at the moment, there are two theories doing the rounds. Sources at Marvel Studios and Disney tell EW they made a decision to change course and open the movie worldwide on the same date. "Done. Avengers: #InfinityWar in theaters everywhere April 27th".

In an exchange on Twitter, Downey appeared to "convince" the studio to release the new superhero flick a week early.

The feature spent seven weeks shooting on location in the Scottish capital last summer, after a year of liaising between Film Edinburgh and the studio executives.
