Avengers: Endgame to be re-released with brand new footage

Charley Ross

It’s official. The Avengers: Endgame story isn’t over – the comicbook blockbuster will be re-released with new footage next weekend.

Speaking to Comicbook.com at a Spider-Man: Far From Home press junket, Marvel boss Kevin Feige confirmed the exciting news. When asked about the likelihood of a re-release, he said: “We are doing that”.

“I don’t know if it’s been announced,” he added. “And I don’t know how much... Yeah, we’re doing it next weekend.”

This move could be a strategic one to push Endgame to the top of box office records. Thus far it has made $2.743bn (£2.43bn), according to ComicBook.com, but the real aim is to edge out James Cameron’s Avatar from the top spot, which holds the record of $2.788bn (£2.47m) at time of writing.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is due out in cinemas on 2 July.
