You’ll be able to watch Avengers: Infinity War a week earlier than expected.

Disney and Marvel Studios announced today that Avengers: Infinity War will be released on April 27 instead of the previously announced May 4. That means there will be even more breathing room for Infinity War at the box office before Solo: A Star Wars Story is released. Solo will be released on May 25.

Marvel Studios made the announcement via Twitter in a conversation with franchise star Robert Downey Jr. Downey Jr. will be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to reprise his role as Iron Man in the new Avengers movie.

Infinity War marks the beginning of a two-part movie event that will conclude with Avengers 4 in 2019. Infinity War is expected to start slowly killing off some of Marvel’s most beloved cinematic heroes as the studio prepares for its fourth phase of films. That means it might be time to say goodbye to Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor or any other superhero who is at risk of not making the cut to the fourth phase.

We’re looking at you, Hawkeye.

There you have it: Avengers: Infinity War will hit theaters on April 27.
