‘The Avengers’ DVD and Blu-ray Details: Deleted Scenes, Gag Reel and More
You've been waiting for this news for some time -- and so have we! Marvel's 'The Avengers' finally has been officially announced for DVD and Blu-ray release on September 25. Mark your calendars and get ready to get back into the action with these awesome special features!
'The Avengers' was a huge hit this spring, featuring the ass-kicking union of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, Hulk, Hawkeye, and the glue that holds them all together -- Agent Nick Fury of S.H.I.E.L.D. The gang comes together to fight off an alien threat led by the mischievous Loki, brother of Thor.
And you'll be able to bring all that magic to your living room relatively soon! We're pretty excited about the special features, which include Marvel's very first gag reel (shawarma, anyone?) Check out the official details and cover art below!
