The biggest film of 2019 is returning with new content next week.
Avengers: Endgame is returning to theaters with new material, which may come as a surprise to anyone who thought it never left. Released on April 26, Endgame is still screening at plenty of theaters, and Disney hopes to bring fans back and (hopefully) overtake Avatar’s $2.79-billion box office record.
The re-released version will include never-before-seen footage, but it’s not exactly an extended cut. Speaking to Screenrant, producer Kevin Feige said that the re-release will arrive on June 28, featuring new content in the post-credits section.
“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.”
Endgame‘s original cut was already three hours long, so an extended cut would probably be overkill. However, we may see some deleted material on the film’s home release. We know from cast and crew interviews that Marvel filmed scenes with 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford as an older version of Tony Stark’s daughter, along with other material that didn’t make it into the final cut, like different scenes from the 2012 battle in New York.
Since there will only be a few minutes of new content tacked onto the end, this sounds like a transparent attempt to bring Endgame over the finish line to be the highest-grossing film of all time. And hey, it might work. With Spider-Man: Far From Home coming out on July 2, some fans might want to arrange a double-bill.
