Marvel Reveals Phase Two Custom Artwork From the Blu-ray Box Set
If you’re looking for a holiday gift for the Marvel-loving nerd in your life (or a gift for yourself; nothing wrong with that), the studio is preparing to release their huge Phase Two Blu-ray box set on December 8 covering everything from Iron Man 3 to Ant-Man with one seriously impressive collector’s item. In addition to the outer packaging and the collection of films within, Marvel has also created custom artwork for each disc sleeve and we’ve got your first peek at the designs.
As you can see in the gallery above, each film has its own individual package with custom artwork, and regardless of how you feel about a couple of the more divisive movies in Phase Two, the art is inarguably awesome. The set comes with 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray and digital copies of Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man:
The limited edition, 13-Disc Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase Two Collection invites you to hold the greatest power in the cosmos in your grasp – an orb containing one of the legendary Infinity Stones! Plus Blu-ray 3D™, Blu-ray™ and Digital Copies of all Phase 2 films, in collectible packaging designed by artist Matt Ferguson. This set overflows with stunning Marvel memorabilia, including a gold-foiled page from the book of Dark Elves, an ancient drawing from the Morag vault, Avengers and S.T.R.I.K.E. uniform patches, a replica of the Tony Stark Tattoo from Marvel’s Iron Man 3, and much more!
A “gold-foiled page from the book of Dark Elves” and an ancient drawing from the Morag vault” is quite nerdy indeed, and with all the love that went into crafting this special edition box set, it’s a must-have item for only the most dedicated Marvel fans.
The set also comes with a slew of bonus features:
