Thanos is officially coming to Earth a whole week sooner than his previously scheduled invasion.

Marvel officially announced Thursday that the release date for Avengers: Infinity War was moved from its previous May 4 release date up an entire week to April 27. This comes at the end of a witty back-and-forth between the official Marvel Studios Twitter account and Robert Downey Jr.

At first, the whole thing read like a playful bit of trolling that was too good to be true. Iron Man asked to “see it earlier” and Marvel Studios responded in kind with the new release date in April, tagging almost every core member of the Avengers team in the process.

If he wasn’t already, then Iron Man should become your favorite Avenger of all time after this one.

Check out the full Twitter thread that starts here. It’s full of cheeky jokes and some sweet, high-quality GIFs from the movie:

It’s tough to say how or why Marvel Studios decided to move up the release date, but using the Avengers “A” for “April” is a nice touch:

The film is a surefire win at the box office regardless of when it comes out, but the news that fans will now be able to see it a full week early is bound to drive tons of them into a frenzy.

Avengers: Infinity War will be the culmination of 10 years of Marvel Cinematic Universe storytelling. It all started in 2008 with Iron Man, so it’s only fitting that Tony Stark would be the one to bring us the good news.


Avengers: Infinity War will be released in theaters on May 4, 2018 April 27, 2018.

Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 is just around the corner. It might feel like Season 5 just began, but as summer winds down you can expect to see some major changes in the popular game. So when exactly will these changes occur? And what will they be?

Here’s everything you need to know about the start of Fortnite Season 6, and our best theories for what to expect in the next couple of weeks.

By now, we all know Thor should’ve aimed for the head at the end of in Avengers: Infinity War, even though Star-Lord shoulders a lot of the blame for Thanos wiping out half the universe due to his meltdown on Titan. But if you believe Doctor Strange’s talk about one successful outcome and his alleged “endgame,” then maybe Star-Lord’s freakout was actually an essential part of the plan. At the very least, the alternative could’ve been so much worse.

With all of New York’s criminal underworld webbed up in Marvel’s Spider-Man, gamers may be curious when it’s time for another swing. DLC will be released for the game very soon, but some are already curious if a sequel is in the cards. Nothing is confirmed, but if it does happen, Insomniac teases even more of Spider-Man’s universe will be explored.

Coming in hot like a meteor from across the cosmos, the trailer for Captain Marvel spotlights Brie Larson as the space-faring superhero primed to take down Thanos in 2019.

But one moment in the trailer is just begging for an explainer: Why on Earth does Captain Marvel punch a sweet elderly woman on a bus?

Carol Danvers has officially landed in the Captain Marvel trailer by smashing right through a Blockbuster Video as the video opens, but rather than looking like a human returning home, she seems more like an alien looking at a strange land for the first time.

The first trailer for Captain Marvel debuted on Good Morning America on Thursday morning. Lead actress Brie Larson went on the morning talk show as a guest to help introduce the trailer.
