The Avengers

UPDATE: Pre-order is now up for the Blu-ray sets; plus, there will also be a special limited edition Marvel Cinematic Universe – Phase One: Avengers Assembled 10-disc, 6-movie Blu-ray Collector’s Edition box set, which is available for pre-order right now.

Marvel Studios’ all-star superhero spectacular The Avengers (Read FamousMonster’s review here) was a four years-in-the-making gamble that continues to pay off handsomely – especially if your name happens to be Robert Downey Jr. Having raised the bar for every major studio blockbuster heading our way this year Disney has today set a release date for the film’s Blu-ray/DVD bow as well as announced the line-up of bonus features that will be accompanying the main feature.

The Avengers will be released on 4-disc Blu-ray/Blu-ray 3D/DVD/Digital Copy; 2-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo packs; and single disc DVD. The only extra features on the DVD will be an audio commentary by writer-director Joss Whedon (and if you’ve ever heard one of his commentaries you’ll find that a good reason to be excited) and the “Assembling the Ultimate Team” featurette.

The Avengers

In addition to the aforementioned commentary and featurette, the Blu-ray disc will also include an additional “A Visual Journey” featurette, the Marvel One-Shot short film “Item 47,” an interactive Disney Second Screen feature, a gag reel, eight deleted and extended scenes including an alternate ending and the talked-about scene where the revived Captain America (Chris Evans) reunites with his sweetheart Peggy Carter (played by Hayley Atwell in last year’s Captain America: The First Avenger) almost seven decades after the last time they were together, and a music video for “Live to Rise” by Soundgarden.

Avengers DVD and Blu-ray

Although some of that cover art leaves a lot to be desired (but at least the four-disc combo pack cover replicates the theatrical poster art, which is nice) it’s apparent that The Avengers will be as huge a hit on Blu-ray and DVD as it currently is in theaters. As far as those supplements go I’m interested in checking out that “Item 47” short and the deleted scenes, and I’m sure that Whedon audio commentary will be a hoot if he can keep up the momentum over the course of the movie’s 143-minute running time.

The Avengers DVD and Blu-ray will be available on September 25, 2012.

  1. Anyone else find “Marvel’s The Avengers” and then another marvel logo directly below it slight Marvel overkill?

  2.  Star Wars (A Ray of Hope) was in the theaters for a year. How things have changed. A thought – the gentleman who resigned over John Carter didn’t do such a bad job after all, did he? Buy John Carter – all “flops” should be this good.

  3. A Ray of Hope?

  4. Wtf, why is there only 4 people in the Blu-ray one?! Well, that cover bites. That’s just unfair for Scarlett Johansson and Hawkeye.

  5. You sly boots, putting the date past the jump so people have to click the article.

    I see you analytics, I see you.

  6. “Star Wars” (Do you mean “A New Hope” by chance?) came out at a time when movies weren’t released for home video use in the mainstream market. And I have no idea what “John Carter of Mars” has to do with this article at all.

  7. I don’t like how they put the title “Marvel’s The Avenger Marvel(logo)”
    it looks ugly!

  8.  It’s marvel-ous.

  9. I don’t know about you but Cap’s world war II costume is better than his updated one

  10. Soo…am I the only one who notices Black Widow and Hawk Eye is missing from the bottom right cover. Figures. No space for the female and black guy…
