'Avengers: Infinity War': Marvel Studios releases new poster, pushes up release date (photo)

UPDATE: It has since been revealed that Marvel Studios pushed up the release date because Robert Downey Jr. (who plays Iron Man) asked it to via friendly Twitter banter. Either way, I think it's awesome for fans who have been waiting 10 years to see the film to see it a week earlier than promised.

I'm not sure why the release date was pushed up from May 4 to April 27, but I'm guessing Disney/Marvel Studios wanted to get a jump on summer sales - especially with "Solo: A Star Wars Story" coming out a month later (why have two films from the same property compete against each other, right?).

"Avengers: Infinity War" hits theaters Friday, April 27.
