Those hoping for Avengers: Endgame to overtake Avatar at the box office will be happy to hear this, as the movie is receiving a second chance to do just that. The film is currently only about $45 million away from the Smurfs, and now it’s being re-released next week with new footage.
Kevin Feige confirmed the news today to ComicBook.com:
“We are doing that,” Feige said of an Endgame re-release with new footage. “I don’t know if it’s been announced. And I don’t know how much… Yeah, we’re doing it next weekend.”
Expect Marvel to really push this with all new advertising starting next week. It’s going to be pretty great to see Avengers: Endgame on the big screen again before Spider-Man: Far From Home.
This is not an extended version. Kevin Feige told ScreenRant:
“There will be a version going into theaters… w/a few new things… If you stay & watch the movie, after the credits, there’ll be a deleted scene, a little tribute, & a few surprises”
So basically this is going to be a preview of stuff that will most likely be on the Blu-Ray release.
