It’s <i>Kaala </i>vs Avengers: Infinity War this April.

Yes, you read that right. In a fun banter with Robert Downey Jr on Twitter, Marvel Studios declared that they are preponing the release of Avengers: Infinity War. The mega superhero film, starring Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, and Benedict Cumberbatch along with Downey Jr and a host of other actors, will now release on 27 April. The film was supposed to release earlier on 4 May.

What this means for Indian fans is that they would have to juggle Avengers: Infinity War with Rajinikanth’s Kaala, which is also releasing on 27 April. Of course as far as Thalaiva goes, he can single-handedly throw the Avengers out of the box office window!

Check out this Twitter thread:


But it would be interesting to watch which film pulls the audience more for sure. Can Rajinikanth really beat the Avengers?

It’s being considered to be a smart business move on Marvel’s part to release Avengers: Infinity War earlier. Chances are that Deadpool 2, which releases on 17 May, and Solo: A Star Wars Story, which releases on 23 May, would have eaten into the Avengers business considerably.

But clearly, Marvel knows nothing about Thalaiva’s superpowers!
