The New Zealand release of the highly-anticipated Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War is drawing closer, with tickets to the ultimate Marvel blockbuster on sale now.

Hitting cinemas nationwide on April 25th, Kiwis are closer than ever to witnessing the culmination of an unprecedented cinematic journey, ten years in the making. Spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers: Infinity War promises fans the ultimate and deadliest showdown of all time.

The latest trailer dropped over the weekend and it seems our heroes have their work cut out for them, with fans speculating who will survive and who won’t. In this Marvel epic, the Avengers and their Super Hero allies face off against their most powerful threat yet, Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos, played by Josh Brolin, plans to use the cosmic relics to carry out his twisted will on the universe. The fate of the world and existence itself has never been more uncertain – everything the Avengers have fought for has led to this epic battle.

Boasting a star-studded cast, fan favourites The Avengers along with a stellar Super Hero line-up return to defeat the mighty evil threating the universe. Not to mention The Guardians of the Galaxy will finally find their way to Earth to join the fight!

A decade of movies has been leading up to this! As Marvel celebrates 10 years of mighty battles, courageous heroes and groundbreaking action, Infinity War, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, will deliver fans the epic showdown they have been waiting for. In the US, Avengers: Infinity War broke the record for most advance ticket sales on fan site Fandango, beating Black Panther to become the site’s best-selling superhero movie ever.

With such a monumental battle on the horizon, Producer and Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige says Avengers: Infinity War will change the Marvel Cinematic Universe forever. “You start to think differently about how the characters are interacting, what character’s stories are coming to a close, and what character’s stories are only just beginning," he says. "Those stories will continue. I think they’ll continue in surprisingly different and unexpected ways.”
