Disney really, really wants "Avengers: Endgame" to replace 2009's "Avatar" as the highest-grossing film of all time.
The Marvel Universe blockbuster made over $2 billion in record time, but failed to surpass James Cameron's sci-fi mega-hit.
"Avatar" has 2.78 billion in global ticket sales, while "Endgame” has earned around $2.74 billion globally.
Now, to try and beat "Avatar," the superheroes movie will be re-released in theaters with extended footage.
"Not an extended cut, but there will be a version going into theaters with a bit of a marketing push with a few new things at the end of the movie. If you stay and watch the movie, after the credits, there'll be a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises," Kevin Feige told Screen Rant in an interview.
The re-release will reportedly happen Friday, June 28.
