After clinching the #3 spot for domestic gross of a movie, rumors have started claiming Marvel and Disney could be planning a re-release of “The Avengers” with more footage to try and grasp the top spot….
James Cameron is currently unopposed for the top two spots of the domestic box office gross charts, having directed both “Titanic” and “Avatar”. Though Marvel’s adaption of the legendary team-up comic “The Avengers” has been breaking every box-office record, as well as soaring into the #3 spot, but it doesn’t seem likely that it will gain a higher spot. Unless the latest rumor turns out to be true.
Superhero Authority have apparently talked to a source that claims Joss Whedon’s director’s cut of “The Avengers” could be released in theaters this summer, just before the film’s September release on Blu-ray and DVD. The site does not claim this as solidified fact, but the rumor was a little too juicy not to report. Apparently there may be as much as 35 minutes of new footage could be attached to the rumored director’s cut, as Whedon once stated his original cut was just under 3 hours long. The only scene that we can confirm was cut was a scene between Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and an older version of his love interest from “Captain America: The First Avenger”, Peggy Carter (played by Hayley Atwell).
As this is a rumor that comes from a rather small site, we would ask you to take it lightly.
