Avengers: Endgame Extended Cut Coming to Theaters!

BY June 19, 2019

Right now, Avengers: Endgame sits at $2,743,300,000 worldwide. In other words, just $44.6 million behind Avatar’s record of the highest grossing movie worldwide. But Kevin Feige and the gang have one last trick up their gauntlet: a rerelease with new scenes. And according to Feige, the Avengers: Endgame extended cut will come out “next weekend,” right in time for Spider-Man: Far From Home.

During a Far From Home press circuit, a fan asked about the Avengers: Endgame extended release, to which Fiege said, “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.”

Now, this could mean that the movie is coming out next weekend, or it could mean that they are officially announcing it next weekend. But it’s happening. Avengers: Endgame Extended is happening!

But what can they possibly add? (SPOILERS AHEAD)

More Fat Thor

More Belly = More Money

Fat Thor was the breakout star of Endgame, and some extended scenes with him would be great—especially if we see him interact with more Avengers. They can also use this as an opportunity to tone down some of the more aggressive fat jokes (like Rhodey saying Cheese Whiz runs through his veins) and beef up (no pun intended) how badass Fat Thor really is. Maybe even get us to call him something besides “Fat Thor.” No one ever said “Fat Volstagg.” But we could all use a little more double-hammer wielding, big bellied Thor in our lives.

Doctor Strange’s Plan

So, after Hulk snaps everyone back into existence, it takes a little while for the previously vanished heroes to join the fight. Considering that everyone arrived via magical portals, it’s clear that Doctor Strange orchestrated the arrival of this massive army. How? On one hand, seeing him go around in a panic rallying everyone would make the portal scene a little less dramatic. But this is an extended cut of Avengers: Endgame. It would be similar to an extended scene from Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. In the theatrical version, when the black ships arrive at the Pelennor Fields, we don’t know that Aragorn and his ghost army already killed them all, so it was a moment of relief. In the extended version, earlier in the film, we do get to see the ghost army take the pirates down.

THAT Deleted Scene

In one of the most mysterious moments during filming, 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford filmed some secret scenes. But then April 27th rolled around and she was nowhere to be seen. Eventually, the Russo Brothers revealed that she played a future version of Tony Stark’s daughter, Morgan. On the HappySadConfused podcast, Joe Russo explained:

“There was an idea that we had that Tony was going to go into the metaphysical way station that Thanos goes in when he snapped his fingers. And that there was going to be a future version of his daughter in that way station.”

“The intention was that his future daughter–because these films are dealing with magic–forgave him and sort of gave him peace to go. And the idea felt resonant. But it was just too many ideas in an overly complicated movie.”

When Thanos snapped his fingers in Infinity War, he went to the soul realm and talked to a young Gamora. Tony doing the same here, but with an older Morgan, would have been a nice bookend. For the theatrical cut, it was too much for Endgame, but for an extended one, it could bring the Avengers that much more closure.

What would you want to see added?
