He tweeted: “First trailer for Avengers 4 will drop this Friday morning. And yes this is final.”
That means mid-afternoon for UK fans awaiting the Marvel epic’s teaser.
This was affirmed by others including Annihilation title leaker Jeremy Conrad and The DisInsider’s Skyler Shuler.
The latter tweeted: “Rest assured when Daniel and Jeremy mentioned other dates, those dates were accurate, the studio has decided multiple times to move release for various reasons.”
While the news will be disappointing for Marvel fans eager to see the trailer, the move is understandable with a former president’s funeral happening.
Meanwhile, Conrad has alleged it’s also a financial move for Disney.
One fan insensitively tweeted: “Funerals happen everyday big deal. Mourning is subjective.”
And Conrad replied: “It’s not subjective when there’s no market trading on the day of mourning, that affects Disney financially and they won’t start a huge marketing campaign on a day when the market is closed. How hard is that to understand?”
While earlier in the day he tweeted: “For those who don’t understand: On a National Day of Mourning, most of the government is closed in the US.”
“A big thing is the NYSE [New York Stock Exchange] is closed and there is no trading all day.
Disney won’t release an Avengers 4 trailer on a day where it can’t positively affect their stock price.”
Avengers 4 will be released in UK cinemas on April 26, 2019.
