First came the X-Men to the cinemas, then Spider-Man...and the rest of the Marvel Universe followed one-by-one. As the Marvel action-flicks came and grew into several money-making franchises, I began to wonder...will there ever be a multi-crossover flick between these comic-book titans brought to life?

Back in 2008, after the end of the smash-hit Iron Man, it seemed very possible that the foundations had now been laid for an actual Cinematic Marvel Universe, with a proper continuity to link several films together. This was then corroborated with The Incredible Hulk, which featured Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark guest-starring in said-film. A character from a Paramount Film transcending to a Universal Pictures Production?! It was unheard of!

And now, after great movies like Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger building up much anticipation for a long-awaited Avengers film, it FINALLY came. Four years in the making, The Avengers (or rather Avengers Assemble here in the UK) debuted on screens in 2012.

Closely following the original premise of the Marvel Comics (way back in 1963), and Brian Michael Bendis' Ultimate Marvel stories, The Avengers' plot follows on directly from the events of Thor & Captain America. The menacing Loki (deliciously portrayed by Tom Hiddleston) has returned to Earth with his sights set on the powerful, mystical artefact known as the Tesseract. After Loki's initial assault promises more devastation against the Earth, it falls to S.H.I.E.L.D. and its Director, Nick Fury (the one-and-only Samuel L. Jackson) to rally the most extraordinary people imaginable to save the world from disaster.

It's time for the long-awaited Avengers Initiative.

Scenes edited, extras missing all because they rushed the UK release. Other European countries get this unedited.

Please please buy the US version which will work on your UK PS3 or Bluray player. Unedited & all the extras.

When we the public were being primed for the introduction of Blu-Ray, one of the primary benefits of the greater capacity in relation to DVD was that there would be access to far more features and extras such as directors commentarys; yes they were going to be considerably more expensive than DVD but you got so much more for your money, it wasn't just better sound and audio.

However, here we see despite the significantly higher premium over DVD, this Blu-Ray offers zero extras, not because they're not available or won't fit on the disc, but because Disney know many individuals will have been waiting for this disc and will pre-order, unaware of the omissions, and of course Disney will then release a 'Special Edition' including everything they should include now.

The sad fact is that many enthusiasts will end up buying both Blu-Rays, and it's this disgraceful attitude towards the UK and all markets except the US which means I never buy new Blu-Rays anymore, preferring to buy them used on Amazon.

And the studios wonder why there's such a massive market for pirated films? It's because you're a bunch of greedy, self-serving entities that's why.

I paid to see the movie in cinema and I really loved it. As with everything else I really like I have no problem whatsoever to part with my money to watch it whenever I like but the way entertainment industry is doing these releases is just begging for it. They want me to fork out £25 for the disc with no extras only to release 'Director's cut' a few months later followed by 'Special Edition' followed by 'Never before seen footage' etc. You know what... stuff that crap. If they want my money they will have to give me a fair deal and this is not a fair deal at all. Until I get what I want I will just not let them rip me of so lets see who will run out of patience sooner. There are countless torrents out there so until we get a fair deal... happy downloading.

After reading the reviews for the UK version, I am so glad that I imported the US version.
The US version is two disc. The dvd (Region 1)has the Joss commentary on it, as well as the Assembling The Ultimate team featurette.
The Blu Ray is MULTI-REGION (A,B,C) and says so on the box.

Very disappionted with this, was really looking forward to the extra features only to find we've been had.

I was really looking forward to getting my Avengers Blu-ray, and not only did it not get to me until Tues 18th (very unlike my other Amazon pre-orders I have to add) but the extra features I was most looking forward to, commentary by Joss Whedon and 'making ofs' were not included.

The film itself is brilliant and well worth a re-watch but why have they cut the extra's from the British releases? Disney already made us play second fiddle to the US with the missed after credits scene and now we miss extras the US is getting, very disappointed with it all and will only end up with people pirating the film and extras on the internet.

I have looked into the US release but am now confused as Amazon.com lists it as region A/1 (ie only US players) so mine probably won't cut it, but other reviewers have said its region free - does anyone know either way please??

I know all this probably means we will be getting a second 'bigger' release at a later date but I really wouldn't have minding waiting along with the US if it meant getting the same deal as them.
