Marvel Cinematic Universe Box Set Will Not Assemble Until Next Year

Marvel has delayed its Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled box set until Spring 2013 following a legal issue. The much anticipated set included The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Captain America: The First Avenger, Thor, and The Avengers, all inside a box designed to look like the briefcase that held the Tesseract in the films. The set was initially set to be released this month in concordance with the Blu-Ray and DVD release of The Avengers.

The reason for the delay is because the briefcase design is too similar to a product from a German luggage firm. Whether or not the higher-ups will work out a deal is still up in the air, but for now, the box that will hold all six films will be redesigned and released in the next couple of months. All pre-orders will receive the new design instead of the old.

Despite the delay, The Avengers Blu-Ray and DVD is still set to be released on September 25th, so mark your calendars.
