With this release, Marvel returns to form in offering a substantial release packed with informative bonus features that shine a light on the production of the culmination of Hollywood’s greatest cinematic universe.

First up is a wonderful series of featurettes that break down the evolution of the core six Avengers, from their inspiration to the character arcs that have evolved over the course of the eleven years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The directors of the latest Avengers film, Joe and Anthony Russo, are no stranger to the cinematic universe, having directed three prior films, beginning with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The brother director-duo share their insight into giving Steve Rogers a fulfilling character arc, as well as blending themes from each character to make a film as massive as Endgame to feel as meaningful and satisfying as possible.
Elsewhere, the featurettes take a deep dive into the evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in its many forms. Up first in this area is a wonderful tribute to Stan Lee, a featurette on the women of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the behind-the-scenes process in creating the prosthetics and bodysuits in the film, primarily for Thor in his state following his failure to defeat Thanos. The Russo Brothers also devote their time to a three-hour audio commentary that plays with the entirety of the film, and with the Russo’s impressive filmography and talents, the opportunity to learn from the process that went into creating this film is always something of great value. Rounding up the release is a series of six brief Deleted Scenes alongside a brief Gag Reel.
All in all, Avengers: Endgame remains to be a truly remarkable movie, and its arrival on Blu-Ray certainly reflects the legacy that this movie will leave upon the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the film industry, and The Walt Disney Company. Fans of Marvel and the Avengers films will want to make sure they pick up a copy of Avengers: Endgame on Blu-Ray or Digital HD, and celebrate the legacy that the Marvel universe has created, and continues to expand upon.
