Fans are in luck as they will get to see the upcoming Marvel movie “Avengers: Infinity War” at an earlier date.

Supposedly slated for a May 4 release worldwide, “Iron Man” actor Robert Downey Jr. asked the official Marvel Studios Twitter account if he could see it earlier.

Not wanting to disappoint “Mr. Stark,” Marvel then suggested, “How’s April 27th?”

Satisfied, Downey replied, “Great,” and asked if he could watch it with some friends. The Marvel account then answered with “You mean these friends?” tagging the actor’s co-stars Chris Evans, Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Mark Ruffalo, Don Cheadle and Anthony Mackie.

But Downey had some other “friends” in mind when he asked, “The entire world?” Not wanting to disappoint “Iron Man,” Marvel then confirmed that the movie will be released one week earlier.

“Avengers: Infinity War” is the third movie to be released revolving around Marvel’s superhero team. The first Avengers movie came out in 2012, followed by 2015’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which both garnered success in the box office.
