The review embargo for Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled to lift just a few days before the official premiere in theaters worldwide. This is a bit unusual from Marvel Studios because the first round of reviews have generally arrived much sooner in the past.
This is not saying that Avengers: Infinity War could end up disappointing fans. The highly anticipated culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is already being pegged by analysts to smash the box office in more than one ways. However, those who are a bit picky about the movies they want to purchase tickets for will have to wait longer to know for certain what to expect.
The review embargo will lift for Avengers: Infinity War on Tuesday, April 24 — the day after the world premiere in Los Angeles, California, and the week of the worldwide release. The first social media reactions, however, are scheduled to appear online sooner on April 23.
There are a lot of factors in play to keep spoilers from appearing online in the coming months. Earlier this week, directors Joe and Anthony Russo shared an open letter to request fans for their silence. The motion was followed by several of the cast members soon after, pitching in their support and asking everyone to not spoil the movie for others.
Nobody outside of a very small circle knows how Avengers: Infinity War plays out. During the production phase, multiple scripts were written and handed between the cast members. These contained various fake scenes that were still filmed by the crew.
Avengers: Infinity War will open in theaters worldwide on April 27, 2018, and in China on May 11, 2018. It will be the first of a two-part series. The untitled sequel, presently dubbed Avengers 4, is slated to premiere on May 3, 2019.
