If anything, the culmination of the previous eighteen releases in the MCU should have warranted a much longer runtime.
At least, you will if you're Robert Downey Jr.
Disney has moved up the release of Marvel's AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR one week, from May 4 to April 27.
Historically, the first weekend of May kicks off the North American summer box office season, but Marvel had always given the rest of the world a week's head-start on its films for competitive reasons, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Marvel suggested the new late April date, to which the actor who portrays Iron Man in the film responded, "Great".
The Avengers are assembling a week earlier than expected. Solo: A Star Wars Story comes out on May 25th, Deadpool 2 hits on June 1st, Incredibles 2 arrives two weeks later and Jurassic World 2 launches a week after that.
For Avengers: Age of Ultron, the company witnessed over 50 brand associations in India and with Captain America: Civil War, it had increased to 70 brands.
That idea is interesting to note because it looks like Avengers: Infinity War will lay plenty of groundwork in addition to paying off the first three phases. Get ready, because this is going to be one of the biggest MCU movies yet. Firstly, many believe that tomorrow morning we'll see the second trailer for Infinity War along with an announcement that ticket pre-sales have begun.
ET exclusively spoke with a few Infinity War cast members last month, where they opened up about Marvel's biggest team-up yet.
