Captain Marvel silenced the naysayers by becoming a huge success and breaking through the billion-dollar mark at the box office. Plus, Carol Danvers might not have featured in Avengers: Endgame that much, but her brief but badass one-on-one fight with Thanos was one of the coolest moments of the movie. Very soon though we’ll be able to relive her debut adventure at our leisure, as Marvel Studios have just dropped a promo trailer teasing the home video release.
Set for a digital debut on May 28th with physical formats following a week later on June 11th, the home editions look to come with an impressive amount of special features, with the promo teasing extensive extended and deleted scenes (hopefully including the Ronan the Accuser scene), a blooper reel and an “Origin of Nick Fury” feature.
That last one is very interesting, as it could be a dedicated special effects feature showing the technical wizardry that went into de-ageing Samuel L. Jackson for the movie, or it could be a unique window into the history of the MCU. It’d be impressive if it was the latter, as the CGI make-up job for Jackson can’t come cheap.

It also seems that at least some of the physical releases (specifically, the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray) will come with a 40-page book outlining the making of the movie, which should be packed with concept art, production photos and interviews with the creative minds behind it. In addition to that, Best Buy are offering a very nice looking Steelbook edition, which will surely please hardcore fans.
But, with Endgame having wrapped up a decade of stories, might it be possible that we’ll see a complete MCU boxset running from 2008’s Iron Man through to the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home in time for Christmas? That’d be a whopping 23 movie set and would presumably come with a hefty price tag, but I’d definitely love to have every single film in one place to enjoy at my leisure.
