Disney under fire after UK 'Avengers Assemble' DVD, Blu-ray release

Disney has come under fire for significantly cutting bonus features on the UK home media release of Avengers Assemble.

It was revealed last month that director Joss Whedon's commentary had been cut from the UK release due to time constraints and fans have now taken to online retailer Amazon to voice their frustration.

"However, here we see despite the significantly higher premium over DVD, this Blu-Ray offers zero extras, not because they're not available or won't fit on the disc, but because Disney know many individuals will have been waiting for this disc and will pre-order, unaware of the omissions, and of course Disney will then release a 'Special Edition' including everything they should include now."
The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has also confirmed that it is investigating claims that the UK home media release is an edited version of the film.

Responding to a user concern on Twitter, the BBFC wrote: "Thanks, we're investigating. If a work has been altered after classification it would be in breach of the VRA"

Reports indicate that the UK release has edited the scene where Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) is stabbed with a spear; completely omitting the spear penetrating his body.
