Good news, Marvel fans: The next Avengers movie is hitting theaters a week early.

Marvel Studios announced Thursday afternoon that it was moving up the release date of “Avengers: Infinity War” from May 4 to April 27 — with the help of Ironman himself, Robert Downey Jr.

In an exchange on Twitter, Downey appeared to “convince” the studio to release the new superhero flick a week early:

“Avengers: Infinity War” will be the third Avengers film and be the 18th movie set in the current Marvel extended universe.
