Re: AVENGERS: Grade, Reviews, Discuss, DVD & Sequel **SPOILERS**

Walmart is packaging their Avengers DVD/Blu-Ray set with an original 100-page Avengers graphic novel written by Peter David.

Looks like I'm canceling my Amazon order. Damn. I hate Wal-Mart.

I'm still planning on getting that Phase One mega 10 disc set.
I wonder if I might find that on E-bay at some point?

For those that want a complete Avengers Blu-Ray set with all the movies, but not the clunky suitcase, you might want to check out the set made in the UK. The set is also region free, so it can be played in other countries. However since this is the UK version, Avengers is annoyingly called Avengers Assemble though.

Did you guys see this news yet?

The briefcase mega blu-ray set might now be delayed/cancelled

It looks like there's a lawsuit being filed against Marvel for the design of the briefcase being used for the Phase One blu-ray set...
I dont know if the sets will be withdrawn, but any that survive are gonna be huge collectors items.
Why didn't Marvel just go with a generic briefcase design? Will those people that preordered the set be getting a VERY limited set that will never be released ever again, or will their entire order simply be cancelled?

Saw it, and it seemed it wasn't affecting the release... until today.

- Amazon has stopped taking preorders and it has the item under review
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0083SBMGW

- Disney removed the briefcase pictures from its site and modified the description:
http://www.phase1avengersassembled.c..._AVENGERS.html
http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread....198188&page=27

I know for sure that this Disney page had the briefcase image on it, and now it's also been replaced with a placeholder image

Notice anything missing from the description?

New:
Immerse yourself in every aspect of Marvel’s elite Super Heroes with this limited-edition, 10-disc Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One Collection. Complete with glowing Tesseract, this collectible gift set includes stunning Blu-ray 3D™ and Blu-ray™ presentations of The Avengers; Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor, as well as Blu-ray™ versions of Iron Man; Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk in exclusive collectible packaging. Plus, now that you possess the highest level of security clearance, you have been granted access to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most confidential files, including a top-secret bonus disc filled with never before seen, classified information. Also featuring exquisitely detailed art, prop reproductions and artifacts from the motion pictures, the must-own Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One Collection will verify your status as the world’s greatest authority on the Marvel Super Hero mythos!

"Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One" hits shelves on September 25, 2012.

Old:

- And users from bluray.com are reporting getting information from retailers

http://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread....198188&page=29

I've got the set preordered and paid off at Moviestop, after reading the thread I just called them and was told they received a e-mail from Disney saying that this will not be released on 25 September, the e-mail said it may be released at a later time. At the moment they are checking to see if they can return the movies that were traded in for all those who preordered the set.

For those who think the cover art sucks, there is good news.

Best Buy is giving away an awesome looking Metal Blu-Ray case when you preorder any of the Blu-Ray versions.

You to actually pick up the metal case in the store and take it to the cashier when you make your preorder.

Here are pictures.

Well, you gotta excuse the British for having something else called the Avengers that predates Marvel's super team.

I think most of the Brits are clever enough to know the difference.

Yeah, except that wasn't an issue here in the U.S. The 1998 Ralph Fiennes movie based on the British spy series was also called The Avengers and everyone is expected to know the difference. Although, in some circles, the new 2012 movie is called Marvel's The Avengers.

Regardless, it's not the first time that two completely different movies have shared the same title. Gladiator was the name for both a movie about ancient Roman gladiators starring Russell Crowe and a boxing movie starring Cuba Gooding Jr. Notorious was the name of both an Alfred Hitchcock thriller and a biopic about rapper Notorious B.I.G. Jack & Jill was the title of both a recent Adam Sandler comedy and a short-lived TV series on the WB starring Amanda Peet.

A new deleted scene with Steve Rogers trying to acclimate to the 21st century.

I actually wish we could've kept this one. And the appearance by Stan Lee is awesome. Who says he can't have more than one cameo per movie?

I gotta say I rather liked that. I'm looking forward to the deleted scenes.

That was a really good scene and really does add a LOT to Cap's character in the movie. Too bad it was cut.

You guys need to stop spoiling yourself and just wait for for the video release to see everything in the best quality.

I don't consider viewing deleted scenes as spoiling myself as they aren't part of the actual movie. Furthermore, I don' t yet have a Blu-Ray player and the bonus features will be on that disk. So, for the time being, online is the only way I'll see them.
