Merely three months before Infinity War was scheduled to fly into theaters, Marvel Studios has bumped up the release date for the ensemble superhero sequel to April 27. Are you guys excited for the film?

Marvel Studios has so far refrained from giving away any details about what to expect from Phase Four down the line. For a while fans have hypothesised that the final Infinity stone will turn up in Wakanda, the fictional African nation introduced in Black Panther and which features quite heavily as a major battle location in the first Avengers: Infinity War trailer. The good news is that you won't have to wait much longer because the release date of the movie has since been moved up. But hey, this all started with Robert Downey Jr.so whatever he says, goes, right?

The official Twitter account even got in on the fun by posting a pic of Thanos wielding the Infinity Gauntlet, "Excellent".

To which, Robert responded with "Any chance I could see it earlier?" Here's hoping it delivers when Captain Marvel opens in theaters on March 8, 2019.

Marvel coyly pretended this was a new idea and tweeted back: "That's a FANTASTIC idea!"

Firstly, Marvel was facing a global spoiler situation with the majority of the world seeing the culmination of the entire MCU a week before the United States. Marvel Cinematic Universe fans now get to see all of the action on Friday, April 27.

Of course, as has become standard for a lot of big-budget fare, Avengers: Infinity War was always slated to open in late April, just not in the United States or Canada.

Finally, Marvel revealed a new poster for the film confirming the updated release date, which prompted Downey Jr.to tweet in celebration, "You guys wanted it". Cast members received special toy care packages filled with new products celebrating their Marvel character to be donated to children's hospitals. Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee are the executive producers.
