Marvel fans were treated to a big surprise earlier today, but it might only be the beginning. Ryan Penagos, Marvel's vice president and creative executive of New Media, posted a follow up tweet to the Marvel Studios announcement about Infinity War being bumped up a week earlier that has fans going a little crazy. Some Marvel fans with pretty lofty expectations think that there's going to be an announcement regarding the Fantastic Four, which seems highly unlikely. But what could this tease mean and how does it tie to the release of Infinity War coming out a week ahead of time?
Marvel's Ryan Penagos took to Twitter directly following the Marvel Studios and Robert Downey Jr. announcement about Infinity War to post a gif from Men in Black. In the gif, Tommy Lee Johns is talking to Will Smith and says, "Imagine what you'll know tomorrow." This obviously sent fans into a panic, wondering just exactly what Penagos is referring to. Robert Downey Jr. used the word fantastic in his tweet, leading many to believe that there's a Fantastic Four announcement coming, but as previously noted, that seems pretty farfetched.
Several other Marvel fans are hoping that the second trailer for Infinity War will be released tomorrow, which could actually happen. However, trailers usually come out during the beginning of the week to maximize exposure to keep people talking throughout the week while they should be working. That doesn't mean that it won't 100 percent not get delivered tomorrow, but it does seem unlikely at this point in time. The last footage we received was from the Super Bowl 2018 TV spot that offered up a little over 30 seconds of new footage.
Now that the release date of Infinity War has been bumped up a week, it seems that the most probable of a possible announcement tomorrow will be about presale tickets. If Marvel puts the Infinity War tickets for sale tomorrow, will it be coupled with a new trailer? Perhaps, but the best bet might be announcing that the tickets go on sale Monday with the second full-length trailer. This is all speculation at this point, but the presale tickets seem like the best bet at this point in time. Thankfully, we only have to wait until tomorrow, so that's not that long of a wait.
In other Marvel news, it looks like the unnamed movie slated for the August 7th, 2020 has now been bumped up to July 31st, 2020. There seems to be a lot of behind-the-scenes moves being made, but they're all in secret until the release of Infinity War and Avengers 4, so a huge announcement won't likely come until after the release of at least one of those movies. In the meantime, we can all sit back and speculate about what might be coming our way tomorrow. You can check out the tweet that started all of the madness below, from Ryan Penagos' Twitter account.
