The Marvel Cinematic Universe began with Iron Man all the way back in 2008, and almost 10 years later, it’s now in ‘Phase Three’. Phases One and Two comprised six films apiece, but Phase Three is even bigger: beginning in 2016 with Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange, it continued this year with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok. Then, in 2018 come Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and the following year, Captain Marvel – but also coming in 2018 is Avengers: Infinity War, the first of two massive Avengers films that will tie the events of the MCU together into one blockbusting, £400m action-fest the likes of which we’ve never seen before. Here’s everything we know about the film so far – record-breaking budget and all.
What is the release date for Infinity War?
Infinity War is set for release on April 27, 2018 in the UK and May 4, 2018 in the USA. This means the film will coming out in the USA on the unofficial Star Wars Day of May the 4th, which is a little bit cheeky.
