'Avengers: Infinity War' trailer coming Wednesday, Marvel says

Avengers, assemble, because the long wait is finally almost over. The directors' mysterious countdown is coming to an early end.

Avengers fans, are you ready?

The "Avengers: Infinity War" trailer is finally landing Wednesday, reveals an official tweet from Marvel sent out Tuesday morning.   

The Wednesday date is a day earlier than many, including CNET, surmised based on a cartoon countdown from directors Joe and Anthony Russo.

Marvel also shared a teaser video looking back at the numerous heroes who will reunite in the film, and showing fan reaction to various trailers over the years.

In addition, Marvel released the film's new teaser poster, which may look familiar to those who remember the poster for 2012's "Avengers."

Earlier on Tuesday, star Tom Holland (Spider-Man) shared a video where he claims to have received the poster in the mail from co-star Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), and reveals it to the audience until spotting a "confidential" notice. (Come on, why would a co-star send his workmate a poster? But this is a fun dig at Holland's known tendency to leak tidbits early.

On Tuesday, the Russos posted an image on Instagram of a cartoonish "2." This follows the "3" they posted Monday.

Although the directors didn't caption the image or explain it in any way, many fans decided the string of messages meant that the long-awaited "Avengers: Infinity War" trailer will arrive online Thursday. But apparently we were counting wrong, as Marvel's tweet announced Wednesday to be the day.

"Avengers: Infinity War" is scheduled for release on April 25 in Australia, April 27 in the UK and May 4 in the US.
