Update: it has been confirmed that the rerelease of Avengers: Endgame will feature new post-credit footage rather than scenes edited into the movie. Marvel boss Kevin Feige told Screenrant that “there’ll be a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises.” This version of Endgame releases on June 28. Original story below.
Avengers: Endgame isn’t just the most financially successful Marvel film of all the time–it’s also the longest. The final running time of Endgame is 181 minutes, 32 minutes longer than Avengers: Infinity War. But superhero fans who feel that even that wasn’t enough are in luck–Marvel boss Kevin Feige has revealed that the movie is set to return to theaters with even more footage.
In an interview with comicbook.com, Feige confirmed that an even longer version of the movie would arrive very soon. “We are doing that,” he said. “I don’t know if it’s been announced. And I don’t know how much [new footage]… Yeah, we’re doing it next weekend.”
Obviously Feige is light on details, and an official announcement about an extended Endgame is yet to be made. But a rerelease could be what the movie needs to overtake James Cameron’s Avatar to become the most successful film of all time. Avatar made $2.78 billion at the worldwide box office back in 2009, with Endgame having made $2.74 billion to date.
While we don’t know what the extra footage will contain, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have previously spoken about some of the material that was cut from the final edit. These include an awkward exchange between Thor and Valkyrie and an appearance from 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford as the grown-up version of Tony Stark’s daughter Morgan. In addition, there are a few moments in the movie’s trailers that didn’t make it to the version of Endgame seen in theaters.
The next Marvel release is Spider-Man: Far From Home, which hits theaters on July 5. For more, check out GameSpot’s look at its enigmatic new character, and the 20 best (and worst) Spider-Man Funko Pops.
