Assorted grab-bag of discs
on 18 September 2012
When I bought this it was £35, which is a bargain for six Blu-rays, so I don't begrudge the relative lack of special features.
However, considering that the movies included in the set have made Marvel/Disney something in the region of $3.8 billion, you'd think that they could print some new matching discs.
Instead we get the previous releases popped out of their old cases and stuck in a shiny box. I like the shiny box, but the random appearance of this discs does make the inside of the collection look cheap.
- Iron Man and Iron Man 2 don't even match, with Iron Man 2 even saying 'Disc 1' on it.
- The Incredible Hulk has a big picture of that film's Hulk on it, highlighting the one bit of casting they couldn't keep for Avengers (excellent as Mark Ruffalo is, that's still a pity).
- The Avengers Assemble disc just has a big blue print on it that seems to say "Meh. If the UK wanted a decent disc, they shouldn't have changed the film's name".
So, as I say, five great films (plus Iron Man 2) on Blu-ray at a very reasonable price. But the lack of detail work does make it look like they'd rather that people buy their massive "what do you mean we can't just copy your briefcase?" collection, whenever it comes out.
EDITED TO ADD - I've also put up a photo of the discs. Click on 'View and share related images' under the picture of the set at the top of the page.
