The next instalment of The Avengers starring Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johannsson is set to be a blockbuster hit for Marvel Studios.

The plot line of this latest outing sees The Avengers and their super hero pals sacrificing all in an attempt to defeat their powerful arch enemy Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe. 

On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.

After an intervention from Robert Downey Jr, Marvel has now announced the global release of Avengers: Infinity War on 27th April, a week earlier than expected.

The surprise decision brings the international release date (previously 4th May) into line with the UK release date. Expect this film to be a smash hit for kids and comic book loving adults alike – Dwayne Johnson’s Th Rampage was so scared by the earlier release date that his blockbuster film was moved forward to April 13th so as to give viewers a chance to watch this over the powerful Avengers outing.
