The Avengers is the biggest hit of the year, but Marvel isn’t satisfied with the film being the number three earning film of all-time at the box-office. And they plan to go after the top spot.
According to SuperHeroAuthority.com, Marvel and Disney are considering releasing a director’s cut of the film in theaters later this summer. Director Joss Whedon has said there is a close to 30 minutes of footage he excised for the theatrical version that could show up in a DVD/Blu-Ray release. But it appears now that Marvel could put that version in theaters before summer’s end to help push the film over the top.
Of course, this is a rumor currently and we don’t know that Marvel plans to do this.
If there were a longer cut released to theaters, would you see it? Or do you think that the studio should wait for DVD and give us the longer cut there?
