When is Avengers: Endgame being re-released?
You don’t have to wait long to get your extended fix of the huge final showdown between Thanos and Captain America, Iron Man and Thor with the re-release set to hit cinemas on June 28.
What extra footage will be in the re-release?
Those hoping for additions to the already superhero-sized three-hour epic might be left disappointed.
Marvel boss Kevin Feige told <span class=”SpellingError SCXW77596279 BCX0″ “>ScreenRant that the forthcoming re-release is “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.”
Some fans think the tribute is to the late Stan Lee, who died in 2018.
Why is Avengers: Endgame being re-released?
Despite having one of the biggest box office runs ever, thanks to a series of summer hits being released at the same time as Avengers such as Dark Phoenix Rising and Men in Black: International, it fell just short of being crowned the top grossing film ever. Avatar, who currently holds the title made a whopping $2.788 billion, while Avengers Endgame made a not-so-bad $2.743 since being released on April 26. Marvel are hoping to squeeze out a few more million to take the crown for themselves.
The film also opens just a few days before the latest comic book adaptation of Spiderman: Far From Home, which gives fans the chance to catch up with the MCU in the immediate aftermath of Endgame. The new film sees Tom Holland’s Peter Parker team up with Jake Gyllenhaal‘s Mysterio on a school vacation gone bad.
Where can I watch the Avengers: Endgame re-release?
At the time of writing, only Cineworld has confirmed that they will be showing the updated version and tickets are on sale via the Cineworld website.
