Take heed that the global release schedule has been slightly changed by Marvel Studios to have Avengers: Infinity War open in theaters a bit sooner than expected.
According to an official announcement from earlier today, the highly anticipated culmination of past installments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is being pulled back by an entire week. Avengers: Infinity War was previously scheduled to release worldwide on May 4 but will now move to April 27 instead.
Marvel Studios has traditionally allowed its movies to premiere internationally much earlier than North America. Avengers: Infinity War was similarly scheduled to release in more than a dozen countries (including Australia, France, Indonesia) on April 25 before gracing the domestic box office.
This trend has usually resulted in spoilers hitting the internet just because a few countries managed to gain access beforehand. Hence, Marvel Studios is now making sure that “everyone” enjoys the movie together at the same time and date. This also means that the international premiere dates will be pushed back to match the new April 27 global premiere.
The new update makes it even more certain that a new trailer will possibly be dropped very soon. Until then, here is a handy guide to familiarize yourself with the Infinity Stones and where they are all currently located.
Avengers: Infinity War, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, will feature a star-studded cast that includes Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Anthony Mackie as the Falcon, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Tom Holland as Spider-Man, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Chris Pratt as Star Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Vin Diesel as Groot, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and Josh Brolin as Thanos.
Avengers: Infinity War will be the first of a two-part series. The untitled sequel, presently dubbed Avengers 4, is slated to premiere on May 3, 2019.
