The Avengers Extended Version
Banner, Lang, Rogers, and Stark time-travel to New York City during Loki's attack in 2012.[c] At the Sanctum Sanctorum, Banner convinces the Ancient One to give him the Time Stone after promising to return the various Stones to their proper points in time. At Stark Tower, Rogers retrieves the Mind Stone from Hydra sleeper agents, but Stark and Lang's attempt to steal the Space Stone fails, allowing 2012-Loki to escape with it. Rogers and Stark travel to Camp Lehigh in 1970, where Stark obtains an earlier version of the Space Stone and encounters his father, Howard. Rogers steals Pym Particles from Hank Pym to return to the present and spies his lost love, Peggy Carter.

In a gameplay presentation today, I saw an extended version of that Avengers reveal played out in front of me - the level themed around "A-Day" where a hapless Avengers squad battles masked foes and become distracted from a larger threat. It's a heavily-scripted level which sees each of the game's five starting heroes become playable for a short section where they each battle waves of largely-identical enemies across San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, before Black Widow faces off against Taskmaster in a boss fight.
Therian: There's the opportunity to work with Marvel on our own versions - and that's a huge opportunity for us. Obviously, we know people are attached to some of the stuff which has come out more recently but when you consider Marvel as a whole, these heroes have been around, in some cases, 80 years. We're just one of those new iterations and because we're working with Marvel so closely, we think they'll be excited.
Therian: It's a little bit of a mixed bag. [The outfits] need to have a strong Marvel DNA so we're not just doing, whatever. But there are a lot of options and people will find some of the outfits might speak more to someone who likes the comic book version of a hero, while some might speak more to the more recent versions of the heroes. There will be something for everybody and a lot of options to customise your heroes.
The party then comes to an abrupt halt as a loud screeching noise fills the air. We see Ultron enter the room telling the Avengers: "How could you be worthy? You're all puppets, tangled in strings." From there, the trailer continues with virtually the same scenes revealed in last week's version.
Instead of a Marvel short like the studio often offered in the past, an alternate ending and an extended version are among the special features included in the home video release, reported Ace Showbiz.
Though this week's episode probably won't involve any more nightclub dancing -- keep the hope alive, though! -- Marvel decided to go a step further and release an hour long version as well, which you can watch below.
We see Wanda and Vision hiding behind pillars as the two Children of Thanos try to locate them. The final theatrical version jumped right from the attack into the ongoing fight between the heroes and villains without any of the cat and mouse stuff.
The filmmakers' commentary track over the theatrical version revealed that this extended version of the scene -- while deemed "wonderful" and "complex" for diving deeper into the "malignant" family history between Thanos and Gamora -- was ultimately cut in favor of a more expedient way to get the emotional complexity and depth of their relationship across while keeping the story moving.
The film stars Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man as well as Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Of course Spider-Man: No Way Home was one of many Marvel projects which dealt with multiversal shenanigans and it saw the three cinematic Spider-Mans join each other in one film. So what is the deal with this new version of the film and when will it release?
The official Twitter account for Spider-Man: No Way Home recently tweeted out a poster for the re-release along with confirmation that The More Fun Stuff Version will be coming to theaters on September 2, 2022, with tickets being available for purchase on August 23, 2022. The extended cut of the film will feature 11 minutes of extra footage. The original film already had a sizable runtime but the extended cut pushes it to over two and a half hours at 159 minutes.
The theatrical version of a movie is the version of the movie as was released to movie theaters. ... Such scenes are generally end up in the movie's DVD release resulting in an extended version of the movie. It has more scenes than the theatrical version and generally runs longer.
The Theatrical Cut is the version of the film that was shown at cinemas. The Director's Cut is the version edited by the Director, usually for additional home media releases. An Extended Cut is usually any version of the film which is longer than the theatrical cut (though in very rare cases, its shorter).
Some directors explicitly dislike the phrase "director's cut" because it implies that they disapprove of the theatrically released cut. James Cameron and Peter Jackson are two directors who publicly reject the label, preferring "extended edition" or "special edition". While Jackson considers the theatrical releases of the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies to be a final "director's cut" within the constraints of theatrical exhibition, the extended cuts were produced so that fans of the material could see nearly all of the scenes shot for the script to develop more of J. R. R. Tolkien's world but that were originally cut for running time or other reasons. New music and special effects were also added to the cuts. Cameron specified "what I put into theaters is the Director's cut. Nothing was cut that I didn't want cut. All the extra scenes we've added back in are just a bonus for the fans." (though referring specifically to Avatar, he has expressed similar feelings on all of his films besides Piranha II: The Spawning).
Extended or special editions can also apply to films that have been extended for television or cut out to fill time slots and long advertisement breaks, against the explicit wishes of the director, such as the TV versions of Dune (1984), The Warriors (1979), Superman (1978) and the Harry Potter films.
The film Caligula exists in at least 10 different officially released versions, ranging from a sub-90-minute television edit version of TV-14 (later TVMA) for cable television to an unrated full pornographic version exceeding 3.5 hours. This is believed to be the most distinct versions of a single film. Among major studio films, the record is believed to be held by Blade Runner; the magazine Video Watchdog counted no less than seven distinct versions in a 1993 issue, before director Ridley Scott later released a "Final Cut" in 2007, bringing the supposed grand total to eight differing versions.
The PS5 version of Avengers offers players two graphics options: Highest Performance and Highest Quality. Highest Performance delivers a nearly perfect 60 frames per second (with only a few occasional blips), but reduces the rendering resolution depending on how much action is on-screen, occasionally down to 1440p or even 1080p.
The PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions of Avengers launched yesterday alongside patch 1.5.0, which introduces new hero Clint Barton and fresh story content in the form of Operation Hawkeye: Future Imperfect.
According to various reports, including Screencrush, we may well be getting an extended cut when the movie hits later this year for home release. Not only that, but we may get an alternate ending too.
Zach combined clips from Marvel's superhero films with Full House-style titles and the TV show's irritatingly catchy theme song. He also put together a side-by-side(Opens in a new tab) version of both title sequences.
