‘Avengers: Endgame’ will return to theaters on June 28 as Marvel looks to topple ‘Avatar’ as the biggest grossing movie of all time…
‘Avengers: Endgame’ will return to theaters on June 28 with a few extras and a new post credits scene as Marvel looks to topple the all time box office record currently held by ‘Avatar’.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced plans to re-release the movie that will feature a post credits scene, which was not in the original cut of the movie, as well as a tribute and a few more extras packed into the film. Feige was careful to point out that this isn’t an extended cut necessarily but there will be enough extras that will separate this version of the movie from the original released in theaters back in April.
Marvel has kept quiet on its plans for the Cinematic Universe beyond the upcoming ‘Spider-Man: Far from Home’ that opens on July 2 but that film is shared with Sony so it’s not likely that any major revelations will be made at the conclusion of that movie.
Instead, Marvel has been rumored to make a major rollout of the next phase of their film universe at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con in July as well as the D23 convention held by Disney in August.
There are plenty of questions that still need to be answered but none more pressing that Marvel’s plans for the X-Men and Fantastic Four universe of characters, which are now back under their control after Disney purchased the majority of FOX’s assets earlier this year.
It’s tough to know exactly what will be included in terms of extras in this cut of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ but it’s enough that Marvel is putting it back in theaters in hopes of breaking the all time box office record.
‘Avengers: Endgame’ has already made a whopping $2.74 billion at the box office, which is just $45 million shy of ‘Avatar’s all time record. The re-release could be enough for ‘Avengers: Endgame’ to break the record and put Marvel atop the all time box office before July is finished.
