Captain America 2 UK release date moves forward
It looks like the UK will be getting Captain America: The Winter Soldier a week earlier...
There seems to be an ongoing trend with Marvel films that they tend to land in the UK a week or two ahead of their US release. We saw it with The Avengers and Iron Man 3, and next week, Thor: The Dark World arrives in Britain on October 30th, whilst its US release is earmarked for November 8th.
And we're now hearing that this will be happening again with Marvel's first 2014 release, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The Russo Brothers' sequel currently has a US release date of April 4th 2014, but we're now hearing that Disney is likely to put the movie out on March 28th 2014 in the UK. That may not yet hold, as the studio has another major release that date in the shape of Muppets Most Wanted. We'd be surprised if both films ended up coming out that date, and would imagine that, if it came to it, Captain America 2 would take precedence. That's us playing guesswork there, though.
As things stand, Guardians Of The Galaxy remains day and date with the US release, on August 1st 2014. As we hear more, we'll let you know...
