Why the Avengers: Endgame Rerelease Scene Ended Up Cut From the Film's Final Edit

Many of you know by now that the cut scene from Avengers: Endgame that was added to the rereleased cut in theaters last weekend showed a fire chief played by Reginald VelJohnson and his crew witnessing Endgame’s smart Hulk rescuing a building full of people from a fire by scooping them up in a satellite dish and delivering them to safety.

This is when fans realize that Bruce Banner has occupied the body of the Hulk as he explains to the firefighters the best way to scientifically extinguish the fire. The cut scene ends with the Hulk answering a tablet like a phone, then cuts to him at the restaurant with Steve, Scott and Natasha, which is where we pick up in the final cut of the film.

This actually sounds like a really fun and cool scene to see, but with an over three hour film, you have to make cuts somewhere.

Here’s Everything That Was Added In The Avengers: Endgame Re-Release

In a clear attempt to beat Avatar’s box office record, Avengers: Endgame is back in theaters (not that it ever left) with about six minutes of extra content. And if you’re still on the fence about whether or not the re-release is worth another trip to the cinema, then the following breakdown of all the fresh material might help you make up your mind.

First of all, the film now opens with an introduction from co-director Anthony Russo, who welcomes viewers and asks them to stick around past the credits. Three hours later, assuming you followed Russo’s advice, you’ll see a post-credits tribute to the late Stan Lee, featuring footage from old interviews.

After that comes a deleted Endgame scene, which was most likely meant as an introduction for Professor Hulk. The sequence shows Bruce Banner in his new form rescuing civilians from a burning building.

Here’s Why Marvel Cut The Avengers: Endgame Re-Release Bonus Scene

If there’s one thing clear, it’s that Marvel is not content with letting Avengers: Endgame settle for second place when it comes to box office totals. To date, the latest McU film has pulled in over $2.75 billion, which means it’s roughly $36 million away from dethroning the current reigning king, James Cameron’s Avatar, which has held the world record for the highest-grossing movie of all time for nearly a decade. To be fair, that figure doesn’t take into account things like inflation and the relative cost of ticket prices over the past 100 years or so, but that’s a conversation for another article.

Unfortunately, it seems some have taken issue with Marvel’s brand new re-release of the film, which hit theaters yesterday. This cut features a tribute to Stan Lee, a message from co-director Anthony Russo, a brief preview for Spider-Man: Far From Home, and

Die Hard Turns 30! Why Bruce Willis Was 'Concerned' Making His First Blockbuster
Bruce Willis may be a Hollywood icon, but he had a lot to prove on the set of his first major blockbuster, Die Hard.

The actor was “very committed to doing the part” of New York City police officer John McClane in the 1988 film — portraying a cop who becomes trapped inside of a tower overtaken by terrorists.

The classic action film, which celebrated its 30th anniversary on July 20, launched Willis into superstardom.

“Whenever he was on set he was very into the character so I didn’t really bother him,” his Die Hard costar Reginald VelJohnson told People at an

Die Hard Celebrates 30th Anniversary With Outdoor Screening at Nakatomi Tower

Die Hard is easily one of my favorite action movies of all time, so I was thrilled when I was invited to attend an outdoor screening of the film at Nakatomi Tower. I've gotta say, it was pretty awesome watching this movie in the shadow of the building where it was filmed!

Not only that, but I got to watch the movie while enjoying Twinkies! It was a charming little touch that added to the experience. Like Officer Powell says, Twinkies are loaded with, "Sugar-enriched flour, partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, polysorbate 60, and Yellow Dye No. 5. Just everything a growing boy needs."

Bonnie Bedelia and Reginald VelJohnson both showed up for the screening to thank the fans for their love of Die Hard. You can watch them get up and talk about the screening in the video provided below, which contains a few minutes of footage from the event to give

‘Die Hard’ Celebrates 30th Anniversary with Outdoor ‘Nakatomi Tower’ Screening
For a movie originally marketed as “40 stories of sheer adventure,” what better way to see John McTiernan’s seminal 1988 actioner “Die Hard” than in the shadow of Nakatomi Tower itself?

That’s just how 20th Century Fox celebrated the film’s 30th anniversary Saturday night, with an outdoor screening at the foot of Fox Plaza in Century City, which stood in for the famed fictional tower. Hundreds gathered on the roof of an adjacent parking garage at dusk as the gleaming structure provided a picturesque backdrop and the most movie-Mecca-like filmgoing experience this side of Devils Tower and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.”

“It was kind of the star of the movie,” Bonnie Bedelia, one of the film’s (other) stars, told Variety just before the screening. She and co-star Reginald VelJohnson were on hand to introduce the film for the fans in attendance, many of whom wore T-shirts
