However, we have very little doubt that diehard Marvel fans would get themselves back to the cinema to watch the bonus scenes, which actually only equates to about six extra minutes of footage.
To be honest, I’m not so sure I can’t put myself through the emotional rollercoaster of watching the movie so soon after my first watch – also, it’s really long! So if you, like me, just want to know what was in the re-release, I’ve got you covered.
So, the first thing we get is a new tribute to Stan Lee, which is added after the credits according to CNBC. While Lee already appears in the film, the tribute features behind-the-scenes footage of him shooting his cameos.
During the tribute Lee says in a voiceover, “Not only did I not think I would be doing a cameo in such a big movie, I hadn’t dreamt there’d be such a big movie.”
“In those days, I was writing those books, I was hoping they’d sell so I wouldn’t lose my job and that I could keep paying the rent.”
He also added, “I’ve remembered every cameo I’ve done since the first one. I think I’m a very lucky guy.”
Next up, we get an unfinished Hulk scene. Anthony Russo, one of the directors of the movie, introduces the scene and says:
“Thanks for sticking around. As you may have noticed, we packed a lot into this movie. There are a lot of characters, a lot of action, a lot of emotion, and I think a lot of fun. But, believe it or not, we shot some scenes that we needed to cut out. I know, the movie could have been even longer!”
The scene features the Hulk at a burning building. He jumps down to the street holding a satellite dish which he’s using to carry people out of the fire.
After he’s finished with that we see him getting a phone call and he says, “Steve who?” Which indicates it’s right before the scene where he meets up with Steve Rogers, Natasha Rominoff and Scott Lang at the diner and takes photos with his fans.
The next scene is one from Spider-Man: Far From Home as the re-release is also trying to promote the follow-up movie.
So, what you see is the opening scene to the film which is set in a Mexican town that’s been devastated by a cyclone, except the cyclone apparently had a face.
Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) arrive on the scene and Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio also shows up.
The cyclone monster thing appears and Mysterio tells the other two, “You don’t want any part of this,” and starts fighting with the monster.
And that’s all of the extra content, I’m not entirely sure it would be enough to get me back to the cinema, but that’s just me.
