With only a few rare exceptions, the trend over the past few years has been that Marvel movies come to the UK before they hit the US. The reasons why were never fully clear, but now we know that this trend is going to continue with Avengers: Endgame. It's no been revealed the film will arrive here on April 25th.
NEWS FROM THE UK & IRELAND RELEASE CALENDAR:
Avengers: Endgame will have a Thursday opening, 25th April.

Originally the film was supposed to hit US cinemas during the first week of May, but when the Endgame title was revealed Marvel announced that the release would be brought forward to the 26th April - much like the studio had done for Infinity War. Thankfully we still get it earlier, even if the difference is only a single day.
Sadly we don't get to laud over the Americans of the internet with an extra week, but hype and secrecy surrounding the plot of the film Marvel and Disney obviously don't want spoilers hitting the internet before people get the chance to see it. Sadly they didn't feel the same way about Ant-Man and the Wasp, and even though I literally went abroad to see the film early some asshat still spoiled the events of the post-credits scene on social media. Thanks, Disney.
Unfortunately it doesn't look like we're getting Captain Marvel any earlier, so we'll just have to wait until 8th March to see Carol Danvers and Nick Fury strutting about the MCU like they own the place. [Digital Spy]
