Today sees the release of the Avengers in DVD and blu-ray in the United States. Most of my readers will be picking this up, but the big question is where to buy it from. A release like this has retailer exclusives that should be considered when you head out the door today with your head full of Hulk imagery and cut scenes.
All DVDs will include a special code that can be entered at this Disney Avengers hub where exclusives can be obtained such as this excellent poster by Matthew Ferguson.
Here’s the run down on the retailer exclusives (click on any of the images to order and no, I do not get a cut of any purchases made)
In-Store Only: Exclusive Set
In addition to the movie on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD, and digital copy, this Best Buy set includes The Avengers items, including:
• The Ultimate Character Guide
• Lighted lithograph case
• Lithograph card
• Music download
• $30 Sideshow Collectibles gift card
Disney (my personal favorite exclusive)
A set of four lithographs is included for pre-orders of the Avengers on blu-ray. Unfortunately, this is sold out but I managed to get an order in under the deadline (thanks, mom).
An exclusive 90 minute DVD
Target Exclusive Bonus Disc – Building a Dream: Assembling the Avengers
This 90-minute feature will show how the films IRON MAN, THE INCREDIBLE HULK, IRON MAN 2, THOR, and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER were conceived and led to the greatest super hero team ever assembled on screen – THE AVENGERS.
Exclusive Avengers Season One graphic novel. This is part of Marvel’s latest attempt to pull in non-comic book fans with comics that do not rely upon established continuity and instead offer up an adventure that is friendly to those people who would wait in line for a midnight showing but never set foot in a comic shop.
… additionally there are some frozen pizzas with Avengers images on them.
