There are many reasons being floated for the push of the massively major action adventure fantasy movie from That movie company.
One that is not being discussed is closer to the truth.
Yes it was moved because of the foul mouthed movie and the solitary hero movie.
Yes, it avoids the problems with the fans and online spoilers but those haven’t bothered That movie company before.
Three of its actors have fires that can’t be held off forever.
Two are set to leave after this movie.
The third still has movies on his contract.
Push the movie and contain the fires.
Then let all three out at the same time and hope the third one is lost in the noise over one and two.
It has worked before.
One was even in on the promotion of the pushing of the date!

Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Rampage’ Bumps Up a Week After ‘Avengers’ Move
Dwayne Johnson will save the world a week earlier than planned as Warner Bros. moves up his video game adaptation “Rampage” from April 20 to April 13.
The studio announced the shift Monday, five days after Disney-Marvel moved its tentpole “Avengers: Infinity War” forward a week from May 4 to April 27. The schedule change gives “Rampage” a full two weeks again before the latest Avengers adventure arrives.
Warner Bros., which is releasing the movie through its New Line division, has high hopes for “Rampage.” Johnson has underlined his status as a box office superstar through “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.” The action-comedy overperformed during the past two months for Sony with $930 million in worldwide grosses. – Source
Marvel may soon lose its Avengers
It’s the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. After more than 10 years and 20 movies starring heroes like Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor, Marvel will conclude its current theatrical run with Avengers 4 in 2019.
“There will be two distinct periods,” studio boss Kevin Feige told Vanity Fair. “Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after.”
That could mean saying goodbye to some of the superheroes that headline Marvel’s $13 billion movie universe. Marvel’s unprecedented and lengthy contracts with the actors who play the Avengers are coming to an end after the third Avengers: Infinity War film in 2018 and the fourth film in 2019, the publication reported. – Source
