After much speculation, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that Avengers: Endgame will be re-released in theaters on June 28. He further informed that the re-released version will have a deleted scene, a tribute, and some "extra surprises" for fans.
"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," Screen Rant quoted Feige as saying.
As of now, Avengers: Endgame stands at the second position with its worldwide box office total of USD 2.743 billion. The film still needs to earn USD 45 million (Rs 313 crore) to catch up with James Cameron's Avatar , which has a total collection of USD 2.788 million to become the highest-grossing film of all time. Probably, re-releasing the film will help Endgame topple the box office figures of Avatar.
