'The Avengers' is Coming to DVD and Blu-ray This September

Marvel Studios/Disney

Even though the film has only been in theaters for fourteen days stateside, 'The Avengers' has already broken a number of records and isn't done breaking them (one could even say smashing them). But that hasn't stopped Disney and Marvel from prepping the film for home video and now the film has its DVD and Blu-ray release date of September 25. Full Specs below.

This comes from Blu-ray.com, and here are the stats for the Blu-ray set:

If it follows the standard Disney packaging, the four discs would be the 3-D version, 2-D version, DVD and digital copy, while the two disc Blu-ray would offer the film in 2-D and the DVD version. Though it doesn't seem to be packed to the gills, our guess is that Disney will be putting a lot of effort into the second screen feature, which they've been doing with their A titles like 'Tron: Legacy' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.' Whedon told Collider that there's about thirty minutes of additional footage, so those eight deleted scenes are going to be meaty.

If that isn't enough, there's also going to be a ten disc set, though it's unknown what films will be in the package. Since it would likely have a Paramount crossover, the obvious candidates would be a repackage with both 'Iron Man' films, 'Thor' and 'Captain America.' Less likely (though still possible) would be either of the 'Hulk' movies. Here's the cover art for the four disc set:
