Four main cast members of Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” will visit South Korea next week to promote the movie ahead of its release in the country later this month, the movie’s local distributor said Monday.

The four actors - Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Tom Holland and Pom Klementieff - will attend a press conference and a red carpet event for the new film in Seoul on April 12, Walt Disney Company Korea said.

The third movie in the “Avengers” series brings together 22 heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to stop villain Thanos in his quest to destroy half of the world.

The movie opens in South Korea on April 25, two days ahead of its North American release.
