If you thought the story Earth’s Mightiest Heroes had (temporarily) come to an end with Avengers: Endgame, think again. Not only will the Marvel Studios story pick-up again in two weeks with Spider-Man: Far From Home, but there’s also a theatrical re-release of Avengers: Endgame this Friday, complete with a limited-edition poster and some new footage. If you’re confused about a movie that is still in theaters being re-released, don’t feel bad. Like the rules of time travel in Endgame, the notion of Marvel re-releasing a movie into theaters just about two months after they already released the movie is confusing as hell. But the good news is, parents can probably skip it. This re-release sounds like it’s only for the super-fans. Here’s the deal.
On Monday, Marvel Studios revealed specific details for what to expect from the re-release of Avengers: Endgame.
“Fans who buy a movie ticket will receive an exclusive piece of Avengers art (available in select theaters and until supplies run out),” according to the press release, “and will also be treated to a video introduction by director Anthony Russo and an unfinished deleted scene from the film, and it will be a chance for fans to get a head start on the upcoming Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man: Far From Home via a special sneak peek!”
Here’s what that means: You might not get the exclusive piece of art, which, is admittedly, a very sweet poster that heartbreakingly references Tony Stark’s words to his daughter in the film: “We love you 3000.” Here’s what it looks like:
So, this poster is cool, but if the theater runs out, you’re going to have a disappointed kid. Also, though going to see the movie again might be fun, shelling out the dough for movie tickets, popcorn, and sodas (probably at least 50 bucks, if not more, depending on how many kiddos you’ve got) might not be really worth it for one “unfinished deleted scene.”
Then again, if you or your kid is a super-fan, and you were planning on going to see it again anyway this could be an amazing experience. Spider-Man: Far From Home is right around the corner, so it’s your call!
Spider-Man: Far From Home is out everywhere on July 2nd.
The release of Avengers: Endgame happens this Friday, June 28 at select theaters.
