The Walt Disney Company is shifting some film releases around including moving Avengers: Infinity War up one week and pushing the live-action Mulan back almost a year and a half.

The studio says that Avengers: Infinity War will now hit theatres on April 27, 2018 globally.

Things went down on Twitter when Marvel Studios wrote: “On a scale of one to infinity, how excited are you to see #InfinityWar on May 4th?”


@Avengers: #InfinityWar in theaters everywhere April 27th!

Robert Downey Jr who plays Tony Stark aka Iron Man, replied to Marvel Studios asking: “Any chance I could see it earlier?”

“Anything for you, Mr. Stark! How’s April 27th?” came the reply from Marvel Studios.

There is speculation the earlier release date was to put enough space between Marvel’s Deadpool 2, which releases on May 18, and Disney’s Solo: A Star Wars Story that’s out on May 25.

Mulan, meanwhile, is set for March 27, 2020. The Mulan update recently found its lead in Chinese actress Liu Yifei after a year-long search.

Disney also set release dates for 28 untitled films through February 2023 from Marvel, Pixar and Disney live action.
