Although Walt Disney Home Entertainment has yet to reveal when Marvel's The Avengers will be released on DVD and Blu-ray, Amazon.com has offered a teaser image for a collected edition set titled Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled.
Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1963, Marvel’s The Avengers brings together the mightiest super hero characters as they all assemble together on screen for the first time. Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel’s The Avengers is the super hero team up of a lifetime. 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.
On July 15th, Amazon.com will disclose full details for the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled limited edition collection that will contain 10 Blu-ray discs within a briefcase that mimics the S.H.I.E.L.D. briefcase shown in both Marvel's Thor and The Avengers.
