Plus, now that you possess the highest level of security clearance, you have been granted access to S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most confidential files, including a top-secret bonus disc filled never before seen, classified information. Also featuring exquisitely detailed art, prop reproductions and artifacts from the motion pictures, the must-own Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One Collection will verify your status as the world’s greatest authority on the Marvel Super Hero mythos!
Here are the individual disc sleeves, which would be amazing posters on their own.
That is awesome. I do not own any of these on Blu-ray with the exception of CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER. Something told me a set like this would be coming and I hate owning duplicates of the same movie (I think I have eighty-seven versions of THE EVIL DEAD and ARMY OF DARKNESS).
Also revealed was the poster for the Marvel One Shot being included on THE AVENGERS home video release, ITEM 47.
Directed by Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito, the premise of ITEM 47 is that a not-so-ethical young couple (Party Down‘s Lizzy Caplan and Flags of Our Father‘s Jesse Bradford) recover one of the lost alien weapons and figure out how to make it work. Then, of course, they have to figure out what to do with it — and their solution is a life of crime. S.H.I.E.L.D. agents played by Lost‘s man-in-black Titus Welliver, and Maximiliano Hernández (reprising his role as Sitwell from Thor and The Avengers) are assigned the task of stopping them and getting the weapon back.
Love the Marvel movies or hate them, with Disney in their corner there will be nothing held back from releasing the best quality special features for their movies.THE AVENGERS, ITEM 47, and the PHASE ONE Blu-ray sets all hit stores September 25th. Go get yourself an early Christmas present!
|Extra Tidbit:||I love that the ITEM 47 poster is the same as THE AVENGERS one sheet, minus the heroes.|
