Avengers: Infinity War Is Coming Out A Week Earlier Thanks To Robert Downey Jr.


Sometimes good things happen in this world which just put a little extra spring in your step.

Marvel fans have been counting down the days to Avengers: Infinity War ever since it was announced way back in 2014 – they’ve shown a patience and strength which surely deserves some sort of recognition.

As the release date finally creeps near, tense fans have been on tenterhooks looking for titbits about the ambitious film, which purports to tie together all aspects of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Now, it appears fans won’t have to wait as long as they originally thought, to check if the job has been done properly. Indeed, you can catch the epic adventure a week earlier than planned.

The super cool, ‘no big deal’ way in which this information was announced was almost as incredible as the big news itself.

Knowing fans were climbing the walls with anticipation, Marvel tweeted:

On a scale of one to infinity, how excited are you to see #InfinityWar on May 4th?

Then, none other than Robert Downey Jr. – aka ingenious playboy Tony Stark – replied with a characteristically confident:

Any chance I could see it earlier?

A prickle of excitement was beginning to stir among fans, but nobody could have predicted the seismic shift in our own non-Marvel universe which was about to follow.

Not one to refuse the request of a billionaire wearing a military grade iron suit, Marvel shrugged:

Anything for you, Mr. Stark! How’s April 27th?

Ever philanthropic, the industrialist superhero pushed: ‘Great. With friends?’

To this, Marvel tweeted back:

You mean these friends?

Tagging his co-heroes Chris Evans, Chadwick Boseman, Dani Gurira, Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle and Anthony Mackie in the tweet.

A solid group of pals sure, but this just wasn’t enough of a thrill for the hard-to-please leader and benefactor, who pressed, ‘The entire world?’

With a snap of their technologically advanced fingers, his wish was Marvel’s command, with the comic book legends replying:

That’s a FANTASTIC idea! Done. Avengers: #InfinityWar in theaters everywhere April 27th.

Tony – I mean, Robert, then tweeted the following message to aghast fans:

You guys wanted it. You got it. See you there April 27th.

All across Twitter, jaws were dropping like space crafts descending on far off planets. What in the name of Ego was going on?!

One emotional person declared: ‘THIS IS WHY I LOVE YOU, MR. STARK’ while another delighted cinema goer said: ‘Im gonna count this as a birthday present because thats my birthday.’

According to the IMDb synopsis, the interwoven plot will look something like this:

The Avengers and their allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.
