Sara Underwood talked about The Avengers Director’s Cut rumors on The Daily Feed. Underwood introduced the segment by pointing out that The Avengers is sort of a hit. After mentioning that The Avengers might get re-released as a 3 hour director’s cut, the audience applauded loudly.
Underwood reported that multiple sources are claiming Disney is thinking of re-releasing the movie with 35 minutes of additional footage. As a graphic of Comicbook.com rolled across the screen, Underwood pointed out that it wouldn’t be just scenes tacked on, but the original version from Joss Whedon.
Underwood said while it’s still a rumor that if it does happen The Avengers Director’s Cut is expected to hit theaters sometime in August. The Avengers is currently #3 on the all-time U.S. box office list, and only the two James Cameron films Titanic and Avatar are ahead of it.
