Avengers: Infinity War to hit screens on April 27

Posted March 03, 2018

Robert Downey Jr. convinced Marvel Studios to push the Avengers: Infinity War release date up a week, but the Disney powerhouse isn't done yet. That leaves May 7, 2021; July 30, 2021; November 5, 2021; February 18, 2022; May 6, 2022; and July 29, 2022 as the new movies we'll be fitting into the slate of forthcoming superhero fare. Most Marvel Studios movies are released overseas a week early, but now the US shares a release date with other major markets like India and the United Kingdom. And how exciting is that?

As for the much-anticipated chapters in the Avengers franchise, fans can be certain that the two movies - Infinity War part I and II - will hold a string to every narrative till date in the MCU.

"The entire world?" Downey Jr. tweeted, prompting the big announcement.

The official Marvel Studios Twitter account posted a GIF asking, "On a scale of one to infinity, how excited are you to see #InfinityWar on May 4th?"

"Infinity War" will re-assemble the Avengers as they try to save the universe from the evil Thanos, as played by Josh Brolin. In that light, the six untitled movies listed for 2021 and 2022 could possibly feature sequels to Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, and Captain Marvel. "Avengers: Infinity War" will be released a week earlier than expected. In the trailer of Avengers Infinity War, one sees unusual humanoid creatures to fight against Captain America or Black Panther in Wakanda. I just hope that poor Bucky gets to just live his life and that Steve Rogers never shaves that beard.

Iron Man, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow, Scarlett Witch, Black Panther, Spider-Man, The Guardians of the Galaxy and more will all team up to fight Thanos and save the world.

It's possible Disney is eyeing a potential record-breaking opening run for Infinity War, which will truly be one of the biggest (for better and possibly for worse) movies of all time.
