In case you feel like heading back to the theater to see Avengers: Endgame again, you’re in luck.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige talked with the press doing the London photocall for Spider-Man: Far From Home, and said that the plan was to have Avengers: Endgame back in theaters by the end of June. What you’ll find that’s different, according to ScreenRant, is a deleted scene, a tribute, and a few surprises after the credits. “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,” Feige said.
Reportedly the release will happen on June 28, which is a good weekend for it as the only new films will be Yesterday and Annabelle Comes Home. Of course, this also puts it right in front of Spider-Man: Far From Home, so there could be a minor bit of cannibalizing that occurs.
The real reason for this push is, of course, the box office record. While Avengers: Endgame is still in some theaters, its ticket sales have slowed to a point of insignificance. It currently sits in the number two spot of the all-time money makers list with $2.743B. Avatar is still in the top spot with $2.788B. Only $44.6M separates the two films. If you were this close to the all-time record, you’d go for it as well.
Will one deleted scene, a tribute, and a few “surprises” be enough to make up the difference? We’ll just have to wait and see.
