Joss Whedon’s The Avengers has been the box office success story of the year, breaking world records across the globe to settle at the #3 spot on the highest-grossing films of all time.
The film will be getting its anticipated DVD/Blu-ray release next month, which will have plenty of bonus features and special treats for us to enjoy (including that second post-credits scene that wasn’t shown in the UK!), and now a brilliant gag reel and the first deleted and extended scened have made their way online.
Whedon, man of many talents, king among men, directed from his own script, and assembled all of the brilliant stars we’d come to know and love from the Marvel Cinematic Universe before it, including Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Samuel L. Jackson, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, and Tom Hiddleston.
Marvel have already set the release of The Avengers 2 for 1st May, 2015, with Whedon returning to write and direct, becoming a major architect of the coming Phase Two, which will kick off next year with Iron Man 3.
The Avengers will be released on DVD/Blu-ray on 17th September here in the UK, followed by a 25th September release in the US. And I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see it again. In my books, it really is by far one of the best blockbusters of all time.
