Here's What You'll Reportedly See At The Avengers: Endgame Re-Release

Marvel Studios surprised everyone with the recent announcement that Avengers: Endgame is getting a re-release just two months after the film hit theaters. Initially, Marvel didn't say a whole lot about what fans can expect from the new version of Endgame — beyond a deleted scene, a tribute, and what studio president Kevin Feige described as "a few surprises." 

Now, Marvel has slightly stepped away from its status as a super-secretive studio to reveal what audiences will see up on the big screen at the Avengers: Endgame re-release.

In a press release rolled out on Tuesday, June 25 (via Collider), Marvel detailed that things will kick off with a video introduction from Avengers: Endgame co-director Anthony Russo. (Anthony's filmmaking sibling Joe Russo will, evidently, not be in the clip.) The film will then roll out just as it always has — with no additional footage included. 

Things get exciting after the credits roll, though, when an "unfinished deleted scene" plays out. Marvel Studios didn't mention what happens in the clip, but the folks at We Got This Covered are claiming that it focuses on Mark Ruffalo's Professor Hulk. It's unclear what the big green guy will get up to in this never-before-seen sequence, though we here at Looper speculate that it could be footage of Bruce Banner working tirelessly in his lab to combine his brains with the brawn of the Hulk.

Similarly, Marvel didn't say anything in its press release about a tribute, but we do know that it's definitely coming, based on Feige's past comments. 

MCU Cosmic reports that the tribute is an homage to none other than Stan Lee, the longtime creative leader of Marvel Comics who helped create several of our favorite superheroes. Lee died at the age of 95 on November 12, 2018, only a handful of months before the theatrical debuts of Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. Again, it's a mystery what exactly the tribute entails, but it seems likely that the clip will touch on Lee's incredible contributions to the world of comics and might even take a look back on the many film cameos he made throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

The final goodie tucked into the Avengers: Endgame re-release that Marvel has confirmed is a "special sneak peek" at the next MCU movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home, due out in theaters on July 2. 

The intro from Anthony Russo and the purported tribute to Stan Lee should be fairly standard, so it's really just the deleted scene and the Far From Home tease that will pique fans' interest. 

An unfinished, scrapped sequence that apparently centers on Hulk definitely sounds intriguing, but it may disappoint fans who were hoping to finally see the scene featuring Katherine Langford as a teenage Morgan Stark, the daughter of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark who appears solely as a young girl in Avengers: Endgame. 

The 13 Reasons Why actress was meant to appear to her father in a vision after he utilizes the Infinity Gauntlet and snaps his fingers. According to Joe Russo, Tony would have seen an older Morgan in the very same "metaphysical way station" that Josh Brolin's Thanos went to after he conducted his Snappening in Avengers: Infinity War. There, Thanos saw a young version of Zoe Saldana's Gamora, his adopted daughter, who asked him what he sacrificed to carry out his ultimate plan. Endgame originally saw Tony heading there as well, where the older Morgan "forgave him and sort of gave him peace" to die. It was a "resonant" moment, as Joe Russo put it, but the scene was cut because it was dealing with "too many ideas in an overly complicated movie."

Right now, there's no way to know for sure whether the deleted scene is all about Professor Hulk or not, so there's a chance that this scene could be the one shown during the Avengers: Endgame re-release. If it isn't, the older Morgan sequence could be included the home release of the film. 

As for the Spider-Man: Far From Home sneak peek, it's actually a huge relief that Marvel still has its mind on the upcoming film. Bringing Endgame back into theaters just days before Far From Home opens is a risky move, given that fans could overlook the Spidey sequel in favor of seeing Endgame another time, but it looks like Marvel is using the re-release as a way to boost hype for Far From Home.  

An introduction clip, a deleted scene, a Spider-Man: Far From Home tease, and a tribute montage may not be enough to attract viewers — which could pose a huge problem since it appears that Marvel's main reason for re-releasing the Avengers: Endgame is to earn enough money to beat out Avatar and become the biggest movie of all time. Those who do decide to give Endgame another watch won't leave the cinema empty-handed; re-release attendees will receive an exclusive Avengers poster in select theaters while supplies last. Even if the extra footage is lackluster, at least the artwork is pretty darn cool.
