With a $2.743 billion global box-office haul, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Endgame” is just $45 million short of breaking the all-time global box office record of $2.788 billion set by “Avatar”.
As momentum for the film has waned so much that it’s not likely to reach that mark without a little push, Marvel Studios is doing just that.
Speaking with ComicBook, Kevin Feige says the movie will get a re-release next week – one week before “Spider-Man: Far From Home” hits cinemas – with a brand new cut featuring deleted scenes: “We are doing that, I don’t know if it’s been announced. And I don’t know how much… Yeah, we’re doing it next weekend.”
The comments come as it’s looking more likely Marvel Studios will announce some of its Phase 4 line-up as part of a panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con where they are now confirmed to be having a panel in Hall H, likely on Saturday July 20th.
Speaking with Fandango, Feige says: “Well… there’ll be a lot to talk about if we’re there. I’ll tell you that. We were waiting for Spider-Man: Far From Home to come out, and now, very shortly, we’ll start peeling back the curtain and talking about the future.”
Marvel Studios is already at work on a “Black Widow” film, has both “The Eternals” and “Shang-Chi” aiming to begin filming before the year’s out, and several possibilities for releases in 2021 along with several series in the works for the Disney+ streaming service.
Disney’s D23 is also taking place later this Summer so it’s expected some details will be held back from Comic-Con and released at D23.
