Being someone who grew up during the VHS era, I remember full well what it was like to seemingly wait forever for a movie to arrive on home video. And though the turnaround gradually lessened over the years, I didn’t ever think a three-month window would become the standard – especially for films that rake in more than $2 billion over the course of their theatrical runs.
Speaking of which, you’ll be able to add Avengers: Infinity War to your personal collection soon enough. Right now, I could make the obligatory and highly appropriate “faster than you can snap your fingers” joke, but I’m guessing it won’t take you one month to accomplish that.
So, if you’ve been keeping up with the latest news pertaining to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, you probably figured that a full unveiling of the home video release was right around the corner. Factoring in an extended Blu-ray trailer dropping earlier today, I’d certainly say you were right.
