Marvel Cinematic Universe fans are going to be able to see the next big installment a little sooner than expected. Today, Marvel Studios announced that the worldwide release date of Avengers: Infinity War has been moved to April 27th, a full week in advance of the previous May 4th date.

The announcement came in the form of an exchange on Twitter, with Marvel tweeting a teaser about the film, and star Robert Downey, Jr. responding. The two accounts went back and forth — I’m not going to lie, it was pretty cute — before the new release date was formally revealed.

Infinity War will kick off an extremely crowded early summer schedule, and Disney no doubt moved the release date to give the film a little more buffer, so it can rack up as many box-office dollars as possible. Fox’s Deadpool 2 is scheduled to arrive soon after Avengers on May 18th, and Disney’s own Solo: A Star Wars Story is landing just a week after that. That’s a lot of competition at the movie theater in a compressed timeframe, and while there will be plenty of interest in all three films, Marvel does arguably have a secret weapon: Infinity War will be the first Marvel film released after the stratospheric success of Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther.
