Avengers fans in the UK and Ireland won’t have to wait as long as the rest of us to see Avengers: Age of Ultron. Marvel Studios has decided to move the release date of the hotly anticipated film forward.

In a tweet from the official Marvel UK account, it was announced that the date has been moved forward to April 24 2015.

All of us who are not in the UK or Ireland will have to wait until May 1st to see our favourite team of superheroes again.

This is not the first time Marvel Studios releases a film a week ahead of the US release: The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World and, most recently, Captain America: The Winter Soldier have followed this trend.

The next Marvel release, Guardians of the Galaxy, will have the same release date, August 1st, in both the UK and the US.

Avengers: Age of Ultron, written and directed by Joss Whedon, is currently in production, and joining the ensemble are Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch) and James Spader (Ultron).

So, UK and Ireland fans: time to start the countdown as you are one year away from Age of Ultron! The rest of world is insanely jealous. I assure you.
