Those who haven’t had a chance to see Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame on a big screen yet are getting another chance. Multiple sources are reporting that the Infinity War sequel will be returning to theaters beginning on Friday, June 28th. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed the re-release during the press junket for the forthcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Talking to ScreenRant, Feige said the re-release would include bonus material for viewers staying through the end of the credits:
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.
Considering that Avengers: Endgame is one of the few Marvel films to not feature a post-credits scene, this is a nice addition that doesn’t change the viewing experience of the initial release and rewards viewers who come back for another go-round.
Those return viewers may be just what Endgame needs if it wants to overtake Avatar to become the highest-grossing movie of all time. The film has had immense staying power, only falling out of the top weekend earners this past week. According to Box Office Mojo the superhero spectacular is currently sitting at $2.743 billion dollars, roughly $45 million behind Avatar‘s total worldwide gross of $2.788 billion.
As of this past weekend Avengers: Endgame was still playing in many locations, including my local AMC theater, and it looks like it’ll still be there next week ahead of the re-release. Hopefully theaters that still have the movie when the re-release hits will just add the post-film extras to their screenings so everyone will have the opportunity to see the new material.
The Avengers: Endgame re-release will hit theaters on June 28th.
