Kevin Feige reveals Avengers: Endgame will return to theaters next week with additional post-credit surprises.
According to ComicBook.com, when asked about a re-release with new footage during a press junket for Spider-Man: Far From Home, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said, “We are doing that. I don’t know if it’s been announced. And I don’t know how much… Yeah, we’re doing it next weekend.”
Feige provided more details about the re-release to ScreenRant. “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,” he said. “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.”
The timing of this re-release makes a lot of sense. Endgame re-opens just a few days prior to Far From Home’s premiere, giving fans the opportunity to rewatch Endgame before catching up with Peter Parker on his next solo adventure. Those two movies are linked; Far From Home marketing has made it very clear Peter is still mourning the loss of his mentor, Tony Stark, and has to rise up to the challenge of becoming “the next Iron Man” to keep Earth safe.
Endgame has earned $2.743 billion at the worldwide box office so far, making it one of the highest-grossing films of ever. However, it hasn’t yet unseated James Cameron’s Avatar, which earned $2.787 billion in 2009. It’s unclear if the Marvel Studios film will manage to finally unseat the current highest-grossing movie ever.
Avengers: Endgame is in theaters now.
