I know for sure I am splashing out on the Blu-ray for this baby as it is going to be full of extras and deleted scenes.
The biggest film of the year will take retailers by storm on 17th September 2012 when Marvel Avengers Assemble is released on Blu-ray and DVD. As well as giving fans the chance to enjoy the exhilarating action and the movie’s visually stunning special effects over and over again, Blu-ray audiences will also be treated to a host of behind-the-scenes insights and all new footage.
Coupled with box office takings that exceeded $1 billion globally after just 19 days – making it the third biggest movie of all time globally – Marvel Avengers Assemble is unquestionably a must own Blu-ray and DVD. Pre-order sales for the film’s Blu-ray and DVD release underline how hotly anticipated this release is, racking up enough sales in three days of pre-orders to put it on track to be the second biggest week one in pre-order sales ever in the UK.
Exclusive to the Blu-ray edition is the highly anticipated all-new short – Marvel One Shot: “ITEM 47.” The Avengers won the battle, but a few items were left behind…is the stark warning underlining this side story in which New York City is in ruins following the epic climax to Marvel’s Avengers Assemble. Certain alien technology has been left behind. S.H.I.E.L.D. recovered all but one…a Chitauri weapon, aka “ITEM 47.” Fans will only be able to find out what happens after Benny (Jesse Bradford) and Claire (Lizzy Caplan), stumble across the elusive weapon by watching the thrilling short exclusively on Blu-ray.
Also, for the first time, Marvel shares scenes that never made it into the cinematic version of the movie and invites viewers to the very early stages of pre-production on the film “Marvel Avengers Assemble”. Included in the 90 minute documentary ‘Building A Dream: Assembling the Avengers’ is never before seen footage from ‘Iron Man’ as well as fascinating insight from director Joss Whedon and producer Kevin Feige on how they began creating the Marvel Cinematic Universe for what has been described as “the smartest, wittiest, & most unapologetically entertaining comic-book adaptation of the modern era” (Kevin Maher – The Times) and become one of the most anticipated and talked about movie events in the world.
