The Avengers Blu ray Clips Thanos Headlines The Avengers Blu ray Clips

We’re less than two months away from the home video release of the most successful superhero film of all-time and in anticipation of The Avengers coming to a home theater near you, Disney has released several key clips from the film. Three highlight a key moment of the film, relating to the heroes coming together to work as a team, with the fourth clip coming from after the credits began to roll.

We’re of course referring to the infamous mid-credits button for The Avengers which confirms the long-rumored appearance of Thanos and teases Phase Two of the Marvel cinematic universe.

Avid fans will recognize the first three clips as big areas of focus for the pre-release marketing. Parts of these scenes made up the most impactful moments of The Avengers trailer, specifically seeing the entire team together and the confrontation between Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark and Tom Hiddleston’s Loki.

Suiting up as Heroes


The Hulk Just in Time


Working Together


Captain America takes command of The Avengers


Courting Death and Teasing the Future


Item 47


The last scene is from the Item 47 short film that screened during Comic-Con 2012 and that will come with the Blu-ray.

This marks the first official release of the post-credits scene featuring Thanos. Why highlight a character who doesn’t utter a single word in the film for the home video release? Because he’s a big part of the upcoming Phase Two of the Marvel cinematic universe. He’ll likely be the villain of Guardians of the Galaxy, and could potentially show up in Thor: The Dark World before that, and The Avengers 2 after.

If you’re interested in purchasing The Avengers on home video, it’s releasing in four difference versions, including DVD, Blu-ray combo packs, and of course, the 10-disc Phase One collection – featuring all six Marvel Studios movies to date. Artwork from the disc sleeves from the 10-disc set can be seen below. The Avengers releases on home video September 25th.

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. Pumped for this release. I already have three of the five on Bluray. Debating if I want the 10 disc set. Might have to Ebay some of my films.

  2. In the clip where Cap takes command, does Stark call Hawkeye “Legolas”?

    • yes he does

    • While I believe that to be true, what with the arrows, I hear “lip gloss” every time.

    • yup. one of my favorite jokes from the film.

    • Yeah, that was pretty awesome. I even think he said “Clench up, Legolas” which makes it even funnier…

      • Yeah, Stark said “Better clench up, Legolas” and then took off into the air carrying Hawkeye.
        Very funny moment!


  4. ‘The Avengers’ was a terrible film, in my opinion. It looks like a made-for-TV production. I’m still a little jaw-dropped at how well received this film was.

    - Cheesy dialogue
    - Oversaturation of CGI
    - Obvious set pieces, for example; when we are first introduced to Loki I was thinking “man, that is a horrible set.”
    - Tony Stark was obnoxious and annoying. Maybe it was the way Robert was playing him, I don’t know, but for some reason he really pissed me off in this film.
    - Poorly shot and poorly edited scenes (the “headcount” scene is a perfect example of this).

    I don’t want to go on because I know fan boys are going to blast me. I’m not a troll, I just genuinly thought this film was crap and doesn’t deserve anything above 6/10. Both ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Thor’ were better overall films, in my opinion.

    Marvel is too focused on what’s happening next that they’re like “oh well you have to include this to set up ‘The Avengers 2′”. They should just focus on one film at a time and make it the best they possibly can.

    For comparisons sake (because I know you’re all just gonna call me a Batman fan boy) here are my ratings of the five Marvel Studios films and ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy…

    Iron Man – 8/10
    The Incredible Hulk – 7/10 (extremely underrated, in my opinion)
    Iron Man 2 – 5/10
    Thor – 7.5/10 (also pretty underrated)
    Captain America – 3/10

    Batman Begins – 8/10
    The Dark Knight – 9/10
    The Dark Knight Rises – 8/10

    • i have to agree with u but this website is more avengers fans than batman…i dont get it though…i liked the avengers enough but it couldnt touch any of the three batman movies…Avengers in my eyes is a glorified childrens movie

    • You come off exactly the opposite of what you claim not to be; obvious troll/Nolantite is obvious. That fact that you felt the need to share your ratings of Marvel opposed to Batman pretty much seals the deal (considering your post had nothing to do with Nolan’s Batman until then). I’m glad that gave The Dark Knight Rises – 8/10 at least, though I would have put it far lower. Most of the Marvel stuff would be higher for me, except Thor and the Hulk.

      • Oldschool is a nolanite, but that’s ok. If DC had been kicking Marvel’s butt the last several years, marvelites would be sour and sound illogical, too. Marvel is everything DC is afraid to be…they’ve owned the movie rights to their characters forever and yet can’t shell out more than Batman and Superman…the attempt at Green Lantern failed miserably. Marvel has been winning for years…

    • To each his own I guess but, as you know, most will disagree with you on pretty much every point. I see you are big fan of the Nolan Batman movies. But, to me, the Avengers was much more of a “comic book” movie than the Nolan films. While I love the take Nolan took on Batman it was nothing compared to the comic feel of the Avengers and the films that led up to it. I will watch the Avengers and their lead up films over and over and this will not happen with TDKR or TDK or BB (TDK will get the most play of the 3). What Joss Wheadon gave us is what most fans want out of a comic book movie. I will agree with you on one thing and that is The Incredible Hulk was extremely underrated.

  5. I like in the artwork that Tony Stark is on both sides. It’s funny because people always joke that Ironman didn’t have a villain. lol

  6. I’m surprised they have released these scenes before the DVD is out as they are some of the best ones in the movie – esp of the Hulk !
    But great to watch them again – best action / fun / fantasy film for a long long time !

  7. I still get chills watching that third clip.

  8. I’m with you Braveheart^^ Why would they spoil the best parts? -I guess at this point in the game they have nothing left to lose since they spanked the competition. Go Marvel!

    • Well, it’s not really a spoiler anymore. Anyone who’s interested in buying the home video would have seen it in theater already.

  9. Oh man seeing these again just gets me more excited for the BluRay! Love it!

  10. I’m going to have a marathon where every night leading up to the release of The Avengers I am going to watch each of the first 5 films and then watch The Avengers the day it comes out. I freaking love that movie!

    • I want to do that as well but I only have Captain America and Thor. I’d love that 10-disc collection. What a sweet case!

    • Luckily I have the blu rays of all of them and already did that in the six nights (I even included Ang Lee’s Hulk…) before going to see The Avengers. Was a great and noisy week.

  11. These clips get me pumped. Cant wait to get the BD – triple play and watch 6 movies in 1 day!
    Only 28 more days!

  12. i can watch those scenes over and over again. this movie is so awesome,i love joss whedon.

  13. I cannot wait!
    The director’s commentary is probably one of the things I’m most looking forward to, and of course the deleted scenes… AND of course being able to watch the movie again… and again… and again, and again aaaanndd again :D

    Not getting the 10 disc collection though :(
    I already own all the movies on BD, so I’m hoping they release some sort of 2 BD disc edition that has a few extra features (I hear there’s a Target Edition that includes a 90min documentary about the making of the movie! Hopefully that’ll be released internationally as well…)

  14. No listing for this outside of the US… Typical.

  15. This may break DVD/BR sales records. Cant wait to get my 2 disc special edition!!
