Thanks to Robert Downey Jr., we're now getting the newest Marvel movie—Avengers: Infinity War—sooner than we initially anticipated.

The announcement came in the form of a hilarious Twitter exchange between Robert Downey Jr. (aka Tony Stark) and Marvel studios. The release date of the newest Avengers film will be moving from its original May 4 release date, up an entire week to April 27. 

You can see the exchange below! 

Thanks Robert Downey Jr., we owe you one. 

While we want to think that the movie getting a bumped up release date is all thanks to Mr. Tony Stark himself, some sources have cited that the move could be more likely due to Disney wanting to keep May open for some other pretty major releases like Deadpool 2, coming out May 18, and Solo: A Star Wars Story, which is scheduled to hit theaters on May 25. (We definitely wouldn't mind an advanced release for this, too.)

Regardless, we're pretty excited to see this new Avengers movie. 

According to Comic Book Movie, the film will be Marvel's first two-part film that will better introduce the newest villian—Thanos (Josh Brolin). To combat the devastation that he will surely bring, directors Joe and Anthony Russo shared a cast of 67 characters who will be making their appearance. 

As if that wasn't enough, thanks to a teaser that happened during the Super Bowl, we know members of Guardians Of The Galaxy will be making an appearance with teamwork playing a key role in the film—like Thor teaming up with Rocket Raccoon and Groot in space. 

We think it's safe to say that we're pretty excited about what's to come. Be sure to catch Avengers: Infinity War when it hits theaters April 27!
