What ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Deleted Scenes Will Be Included In the Re-Released Movie?
Re-releasing a movie is more typically done during the post-Oscar season after a film gains numerous nominations or wins. Avengers: Endgame is an entirely different beast of a movie, especially since it went against its own Marvel conventions in not including a post-credits scene.
If you know the ending of the film, then you can probably figure why. Not having any post-credits material or outtakes made it more like a moment of silence for the superheroes who died at the end.
Reverence for these characters was more than earned after 11 years of compelling MCU movies. Nevertheless, a June 28 Avengers: Endgame re-release now gives a chance for fans to expand on the story. The deleted scenes reportedly placed in the movie might help make better sense of the complex plot developments.
The re-release will obviously be a good lead-in for ‘Far From Home’
You can see a cunning strategy to this Avengers: Endgame re-release only MCU can do with aplomb. Releasing just a week before Spider-Man: Far From Home was one of the greatest marketing moves to keep the story fresh in everyone’s mind.
According to Kevin Feige, the new re-release is going to include some footage not used in the original print. What that footage will be is still a bit of a mystery, though it’s being reported most of the added footage will be at the end. There will be a deleted scene, a tribute to one of the superheroes, plus “some other surprises.”
What will they add to perhaps help expand the story and maybe make it seem more cathartic at the stunning losses? One thing we hope it’ll do is to help explain the time-travel elements with a little more clarity.
What might the deleted scene(s) be?
The promised deleted scene during the new post-credit sequence might be some further explanation about the time travel we saw occur, including most memorably by Captain America. Some fans were still left hanging exactly how Steve Rogers managed to live for decades in his alternate timeline without being noticed. Even more so, how did he keep from bumping into himself when he was thawed out of the ice during the early days of the MCU?
Plus, what about all the alternate universe theories fans are still speculating about and what it portends for all of the MCU characters? Maybe this deleted scene will offer some explanations for fans, or more likely extra teasers to help increase the conversations.
Of course, this probably won’t be the only deleted scene included in the film. Since there’s still some mystery on whether Tony Stark created more holographic projections (for his apprentice, Peter Parker), it’s possible we’ll see more details, if not a strong part of the “tributes.”
Paying homage to Tony Stark is more than probable
Stark dying at the end from the gamma energy of the Infinity Stones wasn’t enough for fans who wanted more of a tribute to what the paternal figure of the MCU brought to the franchise.
We all know the suddenness of Stark’s death was meant as a psychological blow to create more palpable emotion of loss in Spider-Man: Far From Home. It’s possible the re-release will have more of an extended tribute to Stark, if not also Black Widow/Natasha Romanoff and the others who died.
Rather than Peter Parker discovering a hologram projection of Stark in Spider-Man: Far From Home, we wonder if this “tribute” might be exactly this in the Avengers: Endgame post-credits. A lot of it hinges on the idea Downey had no involvementSpider-Man: Far From HomeH, outside of being filmed back-to-back.
Or, maybe a lot of the scenes are overly hyped to bring about the ultimate purpose behind releasing it again: Beat Avatar’s box office record and make James Cameron apoplectic.
