Updated June 19, 2019, 3:00 p.m. Eastern: The "additional footage" coming to Avengers: Endgame in its reported impending re-release has been outlined by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige (via ScreenRant).
According to Feige, Endgame will return to theaters starting the weekend of June 28 with some extra content - though it won't constitute an "extended cut."
"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," Feige told ScreenRant . "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."
Previously, a Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer which spoiled aspects of the plot of Avengers: Endgame with an intro from Spider-Man actor Tom Holland was added to the film as post-credits scene in its second week at the box office. Feige didn't specify the specific content that would be added.
Original Story: The recent Avengers: Endgame will be re-released in theaters "next weekend", reportedly with extra scenes not included in the original theatrical release according to ComicBook.
During a Spider-Man: Far From Home press junket in London, Kevin Feige reportedly affirmed a re-release with new footage when asked about it.
"We are doing that," Feige said . "I don't know if it's been announced. And I don't know how much... Yeah, we're doing it next weekend."
The precise date of the re-release was not made clear, nor if it would be re-released worldwide. Look for more on this developing story here at Newsarama.
With $831.2 million in domestic box office through Monday and $1.912 billion in overseas receipts through the weekend, Endgame's current $2.743 billion worldwide total is about $45 million shy of Avatar's all-time record of $2.788 billion and at its currrent pace it would not catch it. It remains to be seen if such a re-release will goose the numbers enough to take the record.
