Marvel is Bringing an Extended Cut of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ to Theaters Because The Last Version Was Just Too Short

Marvel really, really wants Avengers: Endgame to be the highest-grossing film of all time. It didn’t quite get there in its theatrical run, coming up about 44 million dollars behind Avatar, which is also owned by Disney now. But the only thing to do when you come this close to the record and miss is to slap some deleted scenes onto the movie and squeeze that last $50 million out of the specific sort of nerd who needs to see DVD special features on the big screen.

That’s right, Marvel is releasing an extended cut of Avengers: Endgame to theaters because the original runtime of all fucking day wasn’t quite long enough. That’s right Kevin Feige told comicbook.com that Endgame is headed back to theaters with the implicit threat that it’s just going to keep coming back until they get their record.

While attending the Spider-Man: Far From Home press junket in London, ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis spoke exclusively with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, who confirmed that Avengers: Endgame was heading back to the big screen for a theatrical re-release. Not only that, but this version of the film will arrive with extra scenes that weren’t included in the first theatrical release.

“We are doing that,” Feige said of an Endgame re-release with new footage. “I don’t know if it’s been announced. And I don’t know how much… Yeah, we’re doing it next weekend.”

At this point I would rather just watch the misogynist troll cut someone posted to the pirate websites over the weekend. Don’t get me wrong, I think that endeavor was highly stupid even if the goal was just to make people mad about it, but it’s only 90 minutes long and the original theatrical cut ran so long that my son, who I hadn’t even conceived when I went into the theater, had a masters degree and resented me for missing all of his ballgames by the time it finished.
