Ardent Marvelites will no doubt be looking forward to the Blu-ray release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, not to mention the opportunity to take a peak behind the curtain to see how Whedon wrangled the mammoth feature together in the first place. With such a huge cast of characters, the deleted scenes will also be of interest, too, though it’s unlikely any of them will have any bearing on the overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Prior to its release earlier this year, the director noted that he had once planned a Captain Marvel cameo in the superhero sequel, though opted to cut it out because it didn’t gel with the rest of the script. Looking ahead, though, this coupled with the theatrical release of Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man ought to sate the appetite before Captain America: Civil War next year.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will land on Blu-Ray on October 2, while those eager to own the action-packed sequel early can pick up a 3D Digital or Digital HD copy on September 8.
