The box office showdown in May just got a little less interesting. Marvel Studios has moved the release date of Avengers: Infinity War up one week from its original May 4 debut, giving the next chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe a little more breathing room before Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters.
The news was announced in a Twitter exchange between the studio and star Robert Downey Jr., who requested he and his “friends”–the entire world–get to see the movie earlier. “That’s a FANTASTIC idea! Done,” the studio replied. “Avengers: [Infinity War] in theaters everywhere April 27th.”
That’s a FANTASTIC idea! Done.

As far as corporate announcements go, this is one of the more creative and exciting ways to get it done. The move also removed Avengers from an already over-stuffed May. In addition to Solo: A Star Wars Story, Deadpool 2 will also be arriving on May 18.
Avengers: Infinity War will unite much of the MCU, joining the previous Avengers casts with the misfits from Guardians of the Galaxy and characters introduced in Black Panther and Thor: Ragnarok. It will now arrive in theaters on April 27, so mark your calendars accordingly.
