It also includes a Stan Lee-tribute, one of Hulk's deleted scene, an introduction video by director Anthony Russo and a short clip of Spider-Man Far From Home, which released on June 28 (Japan). Will we see Iron Man and Black Widow's return in this?
Did you know: 'Endgame' was to feature another Thanos attack?
Talking of Black Widow, her sequence with Hawkeye on Vormir was an extremely emotional one. Notably, Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye, said that the original sequence was to have an attack by Thanos. "It's a re-shoot we did about six months ago. The original was a lot more complicated with an attack by Thanos," Jeremy said at Ace Comic-Con in Seattle.
