The Avengers: Phase One 10-Disc Blu-ray Collection Contents & Art Revealed

2 years ago by  

On the eve of Comic-Con 2012, where Marvel Studios will unveil the first look at Iron Man 3 and tease “Phase Two” of the franchise, comes more exciting news for fans of the Marvel cinematic universe. The must-own comic book movie collection of the year is on its way and if you’re interested in picking up The Avengers on home video in September, or better yet, the entire Phase One: Avengers Assembled collection, Marvel has just offered a more in-depth look on what the set includes.

If The Avengers wasn’t a big enough deal at the worldwide box office, becoming the third top-grossing film of all-time, its home video release should follow the same trend, releasing with four different versions, with the monster full-series set (including all films) being teased with the following image:

Focusing on the 10-Disc collector’s set, Marvel has unveiled the limited edition’s contents in addition to the art work on the box sleeves containing the discs.

The art for the box sleeves comes from Matthew Ferguson and is exclusive to this limited edition home video release. The sleeves may only be cardboard, but they look awesome. There’s one for each film with an additional S.H.I.E.L.D. inspired design.

It’s a shame these aren’t available as a Comic-Con poster collection similar to the concept art for each Avengers character released last year at the big event. These would make for some great banners to put on the wall. As for pricing, the big 10-disc Phase One set retails for $219 ($152.99 if you pre-order) with the 4-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack suggested retail price coming in at $49.99. The 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack and 1-Disc DVD have suggested retail prices of $39.99 and $29.99, respectively.

Marvel Studios presents “Marvel’s The Avengers”—the team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

The Avengers is directed by Joss Whedon and stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Clark Gregg, Cobie Smulders, Stellan Skarsgård, Gwyneth Paltrow and Paul Bettany.

Iron Man 3 releases May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014 and Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014.

  1. Already pre-ordered Bluray steelbook from HMV UK.

  2. Yeah I dont see the push for BR 3D. I would love the set and have no problem forking over the money.

    It just seems a waste that I have to pay for something (3D) I will never use.

    Its a thinker……

    • Once I was a sceptic like you, then I saw a movie in 3D on a TV, and I was blown away.

      Very soon after I went shopping and bought a 3D-TV + 3D-BluRay-Player. Now, my wife and I are so happy and blown away every time when we see a cool 3D-Movie.

      The 3D-effect in post-converted movies is looking even better on the TV than on the silver screen, IMO (Thor, Harry Potter).

      I,m so lookin forward to see the 3D-versions of The Avengers, ASM, Prometheus, Brave etc. at home again.

    • Ah, I have forgotten to mention that you can choose the depth of the 3D-effect from deep in the TV to coming out in your face, yes I’m a 3D-believer now ;).

      • I dunno man.
        I’ve seen and tried 3D on TVs (demos in stores and at a friend’s house) and it looks a little off IMO.

        The resultion looks

        • Okaaaaaayy, for some reason my comment posted before I could finish typing. Let’s try again:

          The resolution looks distorted and the content I’ve seen looks a lot more blurry than in the theaters.
          The colors are more vibrant and the depth is more noticeable than in the theater, but I can’t get over all the other bugs it has.

          Plus, it’s pretty expensive in most countries for one of those TVs (US excluded) and seeing as it’s bad for a person to regularly use those glasses and watch 3D content, I just can’t see the long term benefits.

          • I don’t know which setup, settings and movie you have seen.

            Not every 3D-TV/BluRay-player has the same quality. Some are bad, some are good.

            You can change the settings in multiple ways (TV + BluRay) and you have to, to get the best 3D-experience.

            There are TV’s with shutter- or polarisation-technique(like in the cinema), I prefer the latter (cheaper and lighter glasses without batteries, no flickering and no headache/burning eyes, it has half the resolution, but the positives outweigh the negative, IMO. And when I am at least 2x the width of the TV away, I can’t even detect it).

            The price of my 3D Setup was about 865$, a half year ago (32″ TV = 705$ + BluRay-Player = 160$).
            If this is worth it, is a decision everyone must do for him- or herself. For me it was absolutely worth it. I needed a new TV for the sleeping-room and PC, and the decision to choose 3D made it maybe 150-200$ pricier.
            And most of my 3D-X-Box-games are also awesome.

  3. Actually i just bought a new tv and had the opportunity to get a 3d one. However they were showing one of the Narnia movies and it looked ….. fake. It did look very 3D but at the same time it lost the look of realism. It almost appeared i was on the set and could see the movie magic being made but someone forgot the magic.

    • I haven’t seen the 3D-effect of Narnia yet, but maybe it has a very bad post-conversion, like Clash of the Titans.

      I highly recommend to see “Sanctum-3D” or “How to train your Dragon” on a 3D-TV, it’s awesome.

      • Oh i have no doubt movies like Dragon and others of its kind look great in 3d. However imho a handful of movies that look great in the3d do not make up for the movies that look like poo or don’t even have a 3d conversion.

        I think it is still in its ‘fad’ stage and has yet to grow into what it could be.

        What turns me off even more is the cramming of it into our faces by the studios. I mean in essence they could use the sales figures of this br boxed set and say see how many people like/use 3d.

        I still think if it does catch on it won’t be for another 5 or more years.

        • This post-converting isn’t very good, it’s money-grabbing by the studios IMO.
          Even when the post-converting technique is getting better and better, it will never be like filming in native 3D.

          This year we have already 3 (good?) life action movies, which are filmed in native 3D (AMS, Prometheus and The Hobbit), and the trend is going more and more away from post-conversion to native 3D, I hope.

  4. I only recently got a Blu-ray player so I only own DVDs of the Marvel movies, but 3D movies do not interest me at all. If they released a box set without the extra 3D movies I would definitely get it, but I don’t think I’m going to drop that kind of money for discs I won’t ever use.

  5. The image above shows a tesseract. If it doesnt come with one, then the price isnt worth it. Im not talking about a cheep scaled down glowing one. Im talking real deal, doomsday style, gonna blow crap up kind of tesseract!!

  6. i am ticked off!! my gf went and paid for it all on pre-order from fye store..now i get just the blu-ray, i mean i get my money back…but have to wait until “spring”? now im sure i wont be getting it, this was a bday gift for August…they had plenty of time from the unveiling until now, REALLY!?

  7. I understand the pain and anger on the previous posts, and I hope
    by now there concerns were taken care of. We se something that
    we want, and then get second best or nothing at all is very
    disappointing. to some this looks like we got caught up. But
    that’s not it. Can we just get what was promised with out the
    trickery?
