Spoiler Alert Warning
“Avengers: Endgame” was the triumphant conclusion to an interlaced series of decade-long storytelling, but in a surprise and powerhouse move, Disney will be re-releasing the film in cinemas, but this time with a bit of a twist.
According to Kevin Feige, the re-release will be: “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. Which will be next weekend.”
To put it simply, Endgame will be back in theaters with the same cut, just with Blu-Ray extras included much like DVDs when people buy movies. The deleted scenes and extras are part of Disney’s marketing plan to lure more people back to see it before it finishes its run in theaters.
The re-release is also part of the studio’s goal to beat out “Avatar” as the highest-grossing film to date. The “Avengers” sequel has already amassed $2.743 billion globally, leaving it about $44 million behind director James Cameron’s 2009 sci-fi epic.
Are you the superhero junkie that would go and re-watch the three-hour long Marvel movie?
