We’ve known for a while now that ‘Avengers Endgame’ was going to get a re-release later this month, but the details have since been unknown. Today, Disney finally lifted the curtain on what we should expect from the re-release.
Marvel took to social media to unveil plans for the re-release. The new version of the film will feature an introduction from directors Joe and Anthony Russo, an unfinished deleted scene, and a sneak peek of Spider-Man: Far From Home before it comes out next week. An exclusive poster will also be given out to those who attend the event.
It’s worth noting that the box office tally for Avengers: Endgame is less than $40 million dollars behind Avatar, the highest grossing movie of all time. Since the release of Endgame, speculation as to whether or not the film will beat James Cameron’s 3-D epic haven’t stopped.
Tickets for the re-release are on sale now. Will this re-release finally push the film over the edge and claim the box office crown? Will you see the Avengers: Endgame re-release?
With Endgame over, Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic universe has reached its conclusion. It’s safe to say we’re in a transition period in which characters like Tony Stark, Thor, Captain America, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye are on their way out, with newer characters like Dr. Strange, Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel taking their place as the main heroes of the sprawling superhero universe. But what about even more characters? With Marvel having a vast library of superheroes, its inventible we’re going to be getting a lot of new faces with Phase 4 and beyond. But who could they be? Let’s have a look at some of the superheroes from the comics who haven’t been adapted yet and see who might be candidates for showing up!

Guardians of the Galaxy introduced the Nova Corps, so it stands to reason their most famous member of the comics has a good shot at showing up in the future. Richard Rider, better known as Nova, was given the helmet of the intergalactic space police by a dying Corps member. Although he didn’t have any idea how to use his equipment at first, he eventually discovered the helmet gave him a connection to a special energy field called the Nova Force, which allowed him to access abilities such as flight, super strength, and energy manipulation. With the MCU continuing to expand into cosmic territory, it’d be awesome to see this galactic defender get his due. Perhaps there could even be a crossover with Captain Marvel or the Guardians!

5. Moon knight
Moon Knight is essentially a Batman-like vigilante but with one difference: he’s pretty messed up in the head. Suffering from dissociative identity disorder, Moon Knight has developed multiple personalities, being born as Marc Spector but also becomes Steven Grant, a millionaire, and Jake Lockley, a taxicab driver. Prowling the streets after dark, Moon Knight uses gadgets and his own combat training to take down the criminal underworld, making him a fascinating anti-hero who’s always teetering the line on becoming a villain.

4. Beta Ray Bill
Beta Ray Bill is one of the wilder heroes of the wider Marvel Universe. A noble warrior alien, Beta Ray Bill is distinctive for being so pure hearted and good that he could wield Thor’s hammer, much like Captain America. It was he who was granted Stormbreaker in the comics and his costume partially inspired Thor’s look in Infinity War and Endgame. A rival and friend to Thor, Beta Ray Bill might even be a worthy successor to the God of Thunder in the films, taking Stormbreaker from Thor if the God of Thunder truly hangs up his hammer.

3. Devil Dinosaur
This guy is a bit of an obscure one, but so were the Guardians and Dr. Strange before they got big. Hailing from a parallel world overtaken by dinosaurs and cave people, Devil Dinosaur aids his friend Moon Boy on the dinosaur infested planet, fighting off dinosaurs and other monsters as they journey across the hostile world. In the modern day, Devil Dinosaur found his way to Earth, where he teamed up with a young girl called Moon Girl. Devil Dinosaur is a bit high-concept, but who wouldn’t want a Dino buddy as their companion?

A 15 year old engineering student, Ironheart began life as Riri Williams, who stole Iron Man tech and forged her own suit of armor. Beginning a career as an underground superhero, Ironheart established herself as a member of her community, helping out the little guy before becoming integrated with the superhero community at large. With more callings for diverse superheroes, it’d be fantastic to see an intelligent, talented young black woman become an Avenger.

1. Ms. Marvel
A very popular candidate to appear in the films, Kamala Kahn is a young Muslin woman who inherits abilities thanks to Captain Marvel and grows into a superhero. Kamala Kahn has been acclaimed for portraying a young woman with diverse interests, with a colorful personality who instantly feels relatable to a young audience. She’s the hero who feels especially relevant now and one that would be great to see in the world.
Captain Marvel was a huge success, bringing in over a billion dollars worldwide and making Carol Danvers a household name. But there’s another hero who remains a fan favorite among comic book fans who shares the Marvel name. Kamala Khan, a Pakistani immigrant who hails from New Jersey, was hailed as one of the best comic book characters of all time. She’s been hailed for allowing a Muslim character to headline a major comic title, as well as her personality being funny, full of heart, and showcasing her as a young, new hero making her way in the wider Marvel Universe. Fans have been clamoring for a big screen adaptation of the character for sometime and it appears Marvel is hoping to make that a reality.
ComicBook has revealed that Mindy Kaling has been in talks about the character on a recent press tour. Kaling noted Marvel is extremely excited about the character and trying to figure out what to do with her. Kaling seems to share the enthusiasm, noting that an unknown talent might be best for bringing the character to life (similar to how the big stars of the MCU, such as Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, and Robert Downey Jr became mega stars for playing Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man). Kaling has previously offered to a pitch a script to adapt the comic character. The overseer of the MCU, Kevin Fiege, has noted they did Captain Marvel first with the intention of doing Ms. Marvel later, in order for Kahn to have someone to be inspired by.
With all this passion around the project, we hope Kaling is brought on board to adapt this character and we can’t wait to see her brought to life! What are your thoughts?
Avengers: Endgame not only gave us an epic end to the Infinity saga, but it also closed the book on several characters’ storylines, paving the way for a new generation of Marvel superheroes to lead the MCU in a new direction
WARNING: MASSIVE SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS: ENDGAME
After Iron Man saved the universe by using Thanos’ infinity gauntlet against him, Captain America went back in time to place the infinity stones back in their rightful place in the current timeline. But rather than come back to the present, Steve Rogers stayed in the past to be with his lover Peggy Carter. He then passed on the mantle of Captain America to his friend Sam Wilson.
Despite closing out his storyline, Steve Rogers might still have some story left to tell in the MCU.
As part of the new Disney+ streaming service, a television series centered on Loki, Thor’s half-brother played by Tom Hiddleston, is in development. How a Loki series would work after his death in Infinity War was a mystery until now.
In an interview with Business Insider, directors Joe and Anthony Russo explained that a loose end for Endgame could lead to a new plot for the upcoming series. When traveling back in time to 2012 (during the events of the first Avengers film), the heroes accidentally let past Loki escape with one of the Infinity Stones they were trying to recover. According to the Russo brothers, this would create a new timeline that Captain America would have to rectify during his mission.
“Loki, when he teleports away with the Time Stone, would create his own timeline. It gets very complicated, but it would be impossible for [Cap] to rectify the timeline unless he found Loki. The minute that Loki does something as dramatic as take the Space Stone, he creates a branched reality.”
Of course, this is just speculation and it hasn’t been confirmed, but it would be amazing to see Chris Evans in the MCU one last time.
This weekend, Avengers: Endgame finally hits theaters. After ten years and twenty-one films, the most epic chapter in the MCU’s history will finally be released. If there was any worry about whether or not the film is any good, these early Twitter reactions should be a clear indication.
On Monday night, Endgame had its world premiere at the Los Angeles Convention Center. A handful of journalists and reviewers were able to see it. Though a review embargo is still in place, many of them posted their reactions online:
#AvengersEndgame is a masterful epic – a true culmination of 22 films that not only concludes the story, but expands upon it. You’ll learn more about the other movies while this one unfolds. If Infinity War is the brawn, Endgame is the brains. And wow, what an ending! pic.twitter.com/94ttBUQKJ0
Wow. #AvengersEndgame is staggering. It’s surprising in ways I never saw coming and satisfying in ways I didn’t realize I needed. It’s kind of the ultimate gift to fans of the MCU. It’s very long and has a few hiccups, but is everything you’re hoping for and more. pic.twitter.com/RO97kw9fs5
Imagine the best possible version of #AvengersEndgame and somehow the film still surpasses all expectations. I cried 5-6 times. It’s the most emotional, most epic, MCU film. A tribute to ten years of this universe and holy shit the great fan service in this movie. Soooo good.
Man #AvengersEndgame kicked my ass. It was an epic conclusion to 11 years of films. It had laughs, incredible action and absolute emotional rollercoaster. It was the series finale for these cast of characters that I had been hoping for. Congrats to all for pulling off the feat.
This can’t be understated: #AvengersEndgame is everything you want it to be and more. I am absolutely floored. A perfect reflection on the last 11 years that pays off everything in the best way possible. Without question my new favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Stunned. pic.twitter.com/5LvFw9UEBQ
Don’t know how any @MarvelStudios fan walks out of #AvengersEndgame disappointed. Movie is loaded with incredible set pieces and tons of small character moments that leave you wanting more. An epic conclusion to 10 years of Marvel movies. Thank you to everyone that worked on MCU. pic.twitter.com/HbXkwuYL5y
Just watched Avengers: Endgame. I don’t believe hyperbole is possible for this movie. It is the ultimate Marvel movie in every way possible and words cannot describe how epic it is. And yes, Hawkeye is a rockstar.
The general consensus seems to be that Avengers: Endgame is an epic film that balances humor and sadness well and not only serves as a proper sequel to Infinity War but also a tribute to the last eleven years of MCU history.
