Disney and Marvel Entertainment have confirmed the release dates for Avengers: Endgame to disc and digital. The film, re-released to theaters this summer in the hopes of surpassing Avatar’s international box office record, will first be available in digital formats on July 30 followed by Blu-ray, 4k Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand on Aug. 13.
On digital, Avengers: Endgame will sell through the Movies Anywhere portal as well as digital retailers like iTunes, Amazon, and Vudu. There’s also an exclusive bonus feature with the early release titled “Steve and Peggy: One Last Dance.” Total bonus features may vary depending on the retailer.
On disc ‘Endgame’ will be available in a “Multi-Screen” edition with Blu-ray and Digital Copy but no DVD (a format previous Avengers films have followed), as well as a Cinematic Universe Edition with 4k Blu-ray, Blu-ray and Digital Copy. There is a Region-Free Blu-ray 3D edition listed on Amazon but the release date is curiously set to Dec. 22, 2022.
In addition to the common Blu-ray and 4k Blu-ray editions Best Buy and Target have already revealed their exclusive editions for pre-order. I haven’t found anything from Walmart yet but they did release an ‘Infinity War’ exclusive Blu-ray so maybe it’s just a matter of time.
There are plenty of bonus features! Disney also revealed the list of bonus features and it’s extensive. Among the extras is a tribute to Stan Lee, a look back at how Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man launched the MCU, six deleted scenes, gag reel, and audio commentary from Anthony and Joe Russo, and writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
Avengers: Endgame has earned $835M (Domestic) and $1,915M (International) at the box office, surpassing Avatar domestically but still trailing the James Cameron project in all-time international rankings. Star Wars Ep. VII: The Force Awakens still holds the number one ranking over both films at the domestic box office.
‘Endgame’ was released again to theaters with an additional unfinished deleted scene following the credits and special screenings with a video introduction by director Anthony Russo and sneak peek at “Spider-Man: Far from Home.”
