BREAKING: “Infinity War” Release Bumped Up to Reduce Spoilers

Previously announced for May 4th, the global release for the upcoming Marvel film Avengers: Infinity War is now set for April 27th, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Infinity War: Early Strike

In the past, Marvel has staggered their film releases. A movie releases in the EU and other locations almost a week before the North American premiere. The lag, however, has led to early spoilers for North American viewers. New characters, plot twists, and, typically, a clip or two of the “post-credits” scenes make their way online before the movie comes out.
Fans are not always to blame for spoiling/leaking Avengers info, either. Both Mark Ruffalo and Tom Holland have reputations for revealing set secrets long before Marvel makes them public.

Infinity War is the next Marvel film after their current record-breaking Black Panther. It is also the third installment in the Avengers series, following 2012’s The Avengers and 2015’s Age of Ultron.Infinity War Release Black Panther
