Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told numerous publications that the Avengers: Endgame will be going to re-release in theaters with new footage and a couple of bonus scenes after the credits. Re-releasing of the film is likely a bid to take down James Cameron’s “Avatar” as the biggest film of all time.
Avengers: Endgame was released in theaters about 8 weeks ago smashing all sorts of box office records, including being the first film in history to gross over $ 1 billion worldwide in its opening weekend and also the fastest film to cross the $ 2 billion mark, in 12 days compared to Avatar’s 47 days.
However, having amassed $US 2.74 billion to date, one record it hasn’t been able to beat is Avatar‘s $US 2.78 billion box office gross to become the new highest grossing film of all time.
Kevin Feige told ScreenRant, “Not an extended cut, but there will be a version going into theaters with a bit of a marketing push with a few new things at the end of the movie. If you stay and watch the movie, after the credits, there’ll be a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises. Which will be next weekend.”
It is not yet clear how much of the new footage will be included in the upcoming re-released film, considering that the original superhero film is already three-hour-long.
Avengers: Endgame released on 26 April and also marked the final film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s current generation, which comprises of 22 films, including Spider-Man: Homecoming and Captain Marvel.
