Endgame never ends.
Although an official announcement from Marvel has still not been made, further details about the Avengers: Endgame re-release continue to come out. It has been confirmed that this version will feature new post-credit footage rather than scenes edited into the movie. Marvel boss Kevin Feige told Screenrant that "there'll be a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises." This version of Endgame releases on June 28. A since-deleted Cinemark listing suggesting the tribute would be for the late Stan Lee, as you might expect, but that has since disappeared, so we're still largely in the dark about what the new footage will consist of.
The movie previously did not have any after-credits scene of note, which is unusual for a Marvel movie. However, in the weeks after its release, a trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home--which deals directly with the fallout of Endgame--was tacked onto the conclusion of the film. If you decide to head to theaters for a fresh Endgame viewing, here are some things to keep an eye out for.
Avengers: Endgame isn't just the most financially successful Marvel film of all the time--it's also the longest. The final running time of Endgame is 181 minutes, 32 minutes longer than Avengers: Infinity War. But superhero fans who feel that even that wasn't enough are in luck--Marvel boss Kevin Feige has revealed that the movie is set to return to theaters with even more footage.
In an interview with comicbook.com, Feige confirmed that an even longer version of the movie would arrive very soon. "We are doing that," he said. "I don't know if it's been announced. And I don't know how much [new footage]... Yeah, we're doing it next weekend."
Obviously, Feige is light on details, and an official announcement about an extended Endgame is yet to be made. But a rerelease could be what the movie needs to overtake James Cameron's Avatar to become the most successful film of all time. Avatar made $2.78 billion at the worldwide box office back in 2009, with Endgame having made $2.74 billion to date.
While we don't know what the extra footage will contain, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have previously spoken about some of the material that was cut from the final edit. These include an awkward exchange between Thor and Valkyrie and an appearance from 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford as the grown-up version of Tony Stark's daughter Morgan. In addition, there are a few moments in the movie's trailers that didn't make it to the version of Endgame seen in theaters.
The next Marvel release is Spider-Man: Far From Home, which hits theaters on July 5 (although the first showings in the US come earlier in the week due to the 4th of July holiday, just days after Endgame returns to theaters).
