Marvel Studios move up release date for "Avengers: Infinity War"


Marvel's next "Avengers" flick is coming to a theater near you even sooner.

The studio's official Twitter account announced Thursday "Avengers: Infinity War" would be released one week earlier from May 4 to April 27.

"Iron Man" star Rober Downey Jr. helped make the announcement on Twitter.

There is speculation that Marvel bumped up the release date so "Avengers" won't compete with "Solo: A Star Wars Story," which will be released on May 25.
