Avengers: Infinity War was probably the movie of the decade as everyone had been waiting to see the giant flick for so long. After having seen the big thriller event, we know that Avengers 4 is going to be an even bigger movie that will define an era of superhero movies. It will take things to a whole new level and no movie ever could actually beat the upcoming Avengers movie. What’s better is that the movie is coming in IMAX 3D and people are going to love it in IMAX just as they did Infinity War.
IMAX released the report for their Quarterly earnings to give a forecast to the investors of the earnings they could expect in the rest of the year and in that report was included an upcoming slate of movies in 2019 which would obviously have included the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
Now what’s interesting here is that the untitled Avengers movie which is supposed to come out on May 3 next year has been mentioned to have an April 2019 release.
Till now, we know that the United Kingdom has a scheduled release for late April (April 26, 2019, to be specific), so the movie may have been scheduled for an early IMAX screening/ release in April in the US as well.
Usually, when a movie is coming out earlier or later in countries other than the US, IMAX has a specific mention for the “international markets” in its release schedules, but for Avengers 4, it does not have that. This could very well mean that the movie is, in fact, coming out in April (26th) itself.
As we all know that Avengers: Infinity War was in the same situation, with the movie coming out on April 27 in several countries, while in the US, it was scheduled for May 4. But then Robert Downey Jr. himself gave everyone the good news of the worldwide release of Avengers: Infinity War. So, it is highly likely that the IMAX schedule is anticipating a change of dates for Avengers 4 as well, or it could be just a mistake. Who knows!
Honestly, if it does end up getting moved up, that would be the greatest news for us fans as the entire world would get to see the biggest movie of this century together! It could turn out to be a great move if Disney does end up pulling this movie a week back because Infinity War literally broke the box office with 3 weeks of no competition at all.
Moving Infinity War to April 27 gave Infinity War an extra week to earn the big numbers with Deadpool 2 getting shifted to May 18. Disney could be looking at a similar strategy even though there is just the final John Wick movie coming out in May 2019.
Avengers 4 will see the return of Thanos, and this time he will surely be taken down by the Avengers. Josh Brolin’s Thanos was just amazing in the movie.
Avengers 4 is in the post-production stage after wrapping up principal photography way back in January, much before its scheduled release. The movie is in the news for its re-shoots which has generated a controversy of sorts, but actually, it’s quite normal for a blockbuster to reshoot some of the scenes. The additional photography, editing, scoring etc. will continue for next few months.
Feige said: “It’s fun to get a jump, it’s good having already shot the majority of the movie.
“We try – what’s the analogy, that a goldfish will grow to the size of the bowl? Ant-Man and the Wasp had very little post and yet we made a lot of strides in post, and we did a lot of very good maneuvering on it with the limited time we had. Avengers 4 has much more time; Ragnarok had much more time and we did a lot. You always fill the time you have. Either you have a lot of time and it really motivates you to think things through, or you have no time, and it really motivates you to think things through!”
Avengers 4 will come out on May 3, 2019 (for now), and here’s the official Synopsis:
“A culmination of 22 interconnected films, the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.”
