While the world was busy celebrating the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight announcement, Marvel Studios wanted to let the public know they planned to release Avenger 2 that same weekend. And no, they have no plans to reschedule.
As reported by TMZ, Marvel originally scheduled the movie to premiere May 1st, a day before one of the most epic fights in history. But they don’t seem to care. After all Avengers 2: Age of Ultron is said to be the biggest movie of the year.
It’s a pretty bold move by Marvel, seeing as the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight is expected to bring in around $300 million that night (May 2nd). We’re not sure if we would want the competition, but then again we also don’t have superheros like Iron Man and Thor in our corner.
