Avengers: Endgame is just $45 million far from breaking the all-time film industry record set by Avatar. But considering it’s only making under $1 million per day (including a mere $470,423 on Monday), it’s extremely unlikely to pass the James Cameron-directed film, though… unless, of course, Marvel was to re-release the superhero epic with extra footage.
Speaking to ComicBook.com at the Spider-Man: Far From Home press junket in London, Feige confirmed the theatrical re-release will include new footage, saying: “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.”
That would be this end of the week, where Endgame faces competition from Toy Story 4, Child’s Play, and Anna, and two weeks before Spider-Man: Far From Home continues the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s uninterrupted string of box office smashes. It’s unclear what the “extra footage” is (maybe the scene with Katherine Langford?), but if there are one thing Endgame needs, it’s to be longer.
So if you are going to see one cut of Endgame, make it the re-release, not the “defeminized” version that’s circulating on illegal streaming sites. It’s exactly what you think it is
