When Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced that Avengers: Endgame's theatrical run would soon receive an updated version of the film featuring more footage in the form of "a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises," fans wondered what, exactly, he meant. But aside from promising the new version of the film would be released "next weekend," Feige remained mum.
Less than a day later, an updated listing on Cinemark gives us more details about what to expect, and when.
Though the exact content of the new scenes remains a mystery, the film will arrive in theaters on June 28 with seven minutes of "bonus footage," bringing the total runtime to a listed 188 minutes. In addition to that, the new release includes a tribute to the late Stan Lee.
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, but it seem apparent that this special re-release is fueled in part by a desire to do just that.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Danai Gurira as Okoye and Bradley Cooper as Rocket, with Gwyneth Paltrow Pepper Potts, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Benedict Wong as Wong, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Josh Brolin as Thanos. The film is in theaters now.
