Avengers: Endgame heading back to cinemas with extra cut scenes

Disney officials have yet to comment on the news.

Disney bosses are giving Avengers: Endgame one more push to become the highest-grossing movie in box office history by re-releasing the blockbuster with additional post-credit footage.

According to Marvel chief Kevin Feige, a slightly revamped version of the superhero epic will be heading back to cinemas on 28 June.

"(It's) not an extended cut, but there will be a version going into theatres with a bit of a marketing push with a few new things at the end of the movie," Feige told ScreenRant.com while promoting the forthcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home film, which picks up after the events of Endgame.

"If you stay and watch the movie, after the credits, there'll be a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises."

He added to editors at Comicbook.com, "We are doing that (re-release). I don't know if it's been announced... Yeah, we're doing it next weekend."

Disney officials have yet to comment on the news.

Since its release in late April, Endgame has shattered numerous box office records, but it currently remains in second place on the all-time list of highest-grossing movies with a global take of $2.743 billion worldwide, falling just short of Avatar's record of $2.788 billion, which was set back in 2009.

Fans of the film have been vocal on social media when it comes to ensuring the hit takes the number one spot, with many sharing the hashtag #WhateverItTakes hashtag to promote the production's box office domination.

The re-release may be just what is needed for the conclusion of the franchise to claim the number one spot.

Avengers: Endgame features the final journey of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd).
