July and August are going to be exciting months for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Avengers: Infinity War will be released digitally on June 31 with a Blu-ray release on August 14, 2018. Furthermore, The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron will be released digitally (4K UHD) on July 31 as well. A physical release will follow on August 14, 2018!
Avengers: Infinity War went on to become a major blockbuster, surpassing the $2 billion mark at the global box office in only 48 days. It is also, as of yet, the fourth title in the highest-grossing films of all time list. The upcoming home release will offer fans more than two hours of extra content.
Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War will be packaged several ways to offer the best viewing experience. The June 31, 2018, digital release will allow viewers to join a 30-minute roundtable with Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) directors Anthony and Joe Russo, Jon Favreau, Joss Whedon, James Gunn, Ryan Coogler, Peyton Reed and Taika Waititi as they “reflect on how their movies contribute to the MCU’s larger storytelling adventure.”
The 4K Cinematic Universe Edition’s “never-before-seen bonus material grants behind-the-scenes access to MCU members and features the memorable moments when characters first meet, the rationale behind some unexpected on-screen pair-ups, and a funny Super Hero gag reel.”
The Featurettes explore the powerful Thanos “and two action-packed attempts to prevent his collection of all six Infinity Stones: the struggle on Titan and the massive battle in Wakanda. Deleted scenes and filmmaker commentary reveal even more on-set secrets from Marvel Studios’ monumental undertaking.”
The Multi-Screen Edition includes a Blu-ray and a Digital Copy of the film, giving viewers the flexibility to watch the film on different devices. Those with 4K Ultra HD capability may opt for a 4K Cinematic Universe Edition, which includes a 4K Ultra HD disc, a Blu-ray, and a Digital Copy.
