Avengers: Endgame is finally getting an official post-credits scene, with a limited-time rerelease in theaters this weekend. Some of you may be asking, does Avengers: Endgame rerelease need to happen with the fact that it is still out in theaters? Apparently so.
Marvel Studios co-president Kevin Feige told Screen Rant that a new version of Endgame will appear in theaters that has a couple of additional scenes not in the original. Feige said if people “stay and watch the movie, after the credits, there’ll be a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises.”
The description suggests that Endgame’s additional materials won’t be akin to the quick post-credit scenes Marvel fans are accustomed to. Feige didn’t provide any additional details, but told Screen Rant the rerelease would roll into theaters “next weekend.” That’s one week before Spider-Man: Far From Home comes out, suggesting that Endgame’s additional features probably tie into the next Peter Parker installment. Marvel previously attached the trailer for Far From Home to Endgame a couple of weeks after Endgame was released.
According to IGN, we know that the film will have six minutes of additional footage. One of which will include an altered Marvel logo that will pay tribute to Stan Lee. Suspected to be similar to the tribute that was used in Captain Marvel, which was surprising that wasn’t used in Endgame.
The rerelease of Endgame will hit theaters on June 28th and will run 188 minutes.
Some are speculating that it is an effort by Disney to beat the record held onto by Avatar. You can’t roll your eyes hard enough to think how silly (and petty) it would be for Disney to strive to beat that record. Since Spider-Man: Far From Home literally ties into the end of the Endgame, it would be a way for people to re-watch the film before jumping into a post-Snap world.
Let us not forget that Avatar is owned by Disney. That would mean that the record belongs to Fox, which is now Disney. Many online sites needed something for people to click on the link, because a rerelease of Endgame didn’t seem to be enough.
