It made box office history by making loads of cash, including over $600 million in US and Canada. It was beloved by audiences and got some strong critical praise. Now this fall it will be one of the most popular Blu-ray releases of the year. Of course I’m talking about Marvel’s The Avengers, the billion-dollar hit from Joss Whedon that assembles Iron, Thor, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye in an action-filled spectacle that kicked off the summer and has remained one of the most-talked about industry success stories.

Today, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment made the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD titles official by issuing a press release.

Besides the film, which will be presented in high-def to accent its stunning visuals and beefed-up audio, it will contain “unparalleled bonus content.”
