For those in North America, that’s a full week earlier than initially expected, as Marvel’s mega-movie was originally scheduled to arrive on May 4th – aka the official start of Hollywood’s blockbuster season. It appears that the studio wants to get the jump on the competition though and, crucially, stop any spoilers from reaching North American audiences ahead of time, as Avengers: Infinity War will now open day and date around the globe.
But wait, there’s more! Fans have started to speculate that we may be getting another big piece of news from the House of Ideas tomorrow. Why’s that? Well, Ryan Penagos, Vice President and Creative Executive at Marvel New Media took to Twitter just minutes after the studio announced the release date change to simply tease us with the following message: “Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.”
As vague as that may be, it’s enough to get fans going and at the moment, there are two theories doing the rounds. Firstly, many believe that tomorrow morning we’ll see the second trailer for Infinity War along with an announcement that ticket pre-sales have begun. And frankly, with less than two months to go now before the film arrives, it’s highly likely that both of those things will happen.
But dig a little deeper and you’ll notice that in the Tweet Marvel sent out announcing the release date change, they wrote “That’s a FANTASTIC idea! Done.” Of course, this was in reply to Robert Downey Jr.’s initial Tweet suggesting they premiere the film earlier than planned. But what’s caught fans’ attention here is the word “FANTASTIC,” with some believing that the capital letters used are Marvel’s way of teasing something about the Fantastic Four.
If you ask us, it’s probably far, far too early to start revealing anything in regards to the characters the studio recently acquired from Fox, so we’re going to have to go with the first option here. That being that tomorrow will bring about the next trailer and/or tickets going on sale. But we’ll just have to wait and see.
Either way, though, it’s a great time to be a Marvel fan and we can now all look forward to Avengers: Infinity War touching down on April 27th.
