Considering that tasty shawarma is still making its way through your digestive system, and the high of Marvel’s The Avengers still fresh on your mind, you might be asking yourself two questions: One – Why did I take a chance on the shawarma? And two – How long do I have to wait in order to get my hands on a copy of The Avengers blu-ray and/or DVD?

While we can’t answer the first question for you, we have huge news and fresh details regarding your second inquiry.

According to a Blu-Ray.com forum post (unofficially, of course), Joss Whedon’s The Avengers will hit stores as early as September 25th of this year.

Just when you thought you’d be overwhelmed with the return of your favorite Fall television shows, now you’ll have to find a few days to devote to checking out some, or all, of the awesome features The Avengers 4-disc 3D Blu-ray combo pack will reportedly feature.

You can check out the box art for all three releases, the aforementioned Avengers 4-disc 3D Blu-ray combo pack, as well as 2-disc blu-ray pack, and standalone DVD below – followed by the list of features in the premium release.

The rumored features for The Avengers 4-disc 3D Blu-ray combo pack are listed below:

– AUDIO COMMENTARY BY DIRECTOR JOSS WHEDON

According to the poster, Disney will also release a 10 disc “super set” that will likely include the prior Avengers canon films – Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, and Captain America: The First Avenger – in addition to the premium Avengers 4 disc Blu-ray.

With The Avengers still “Hulk-smashing” box office records across the globe (currently over $1 billion and counting), one has to wonder what type of astronomical figures the film will generate after the release of its Blu-ray and DVD options at retail.  Not to mention, how much pressure DC is feeling with the release of the highly anticipated Dark Knight Rises – set to hit theaters the summer. With that said, we highly recommend that you pick up a copy or two for yourself when the Blu-ray and DVD of The Avengers release this September – critics raved (read our own review of The Avengers) and the film will definitely offer the same awesome eye-popping moments whether on DVD or as a gorgeous 3D Blu-ray. We also recommend that you skip the shawarma this time around and stick with the popcorn.

For those who, for some odd reason, still have not seen Marvel’s The Avengers, the action-packed film stars an array of Hollywood big guns, including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron ManIron Man 2), Samuel L Jackson (xXx, Snakes on a Plane) and Chris Evans (Fantastic FourCaptain America: The First Avenger).
