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.

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.
