The complete 4K and Blu-ray box set for The Infinity Saga of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been revealed. Over the last eleven years, Marvel Studios has created what is now known as the MCU. It all began in 2008 with Iron Man and launched an interconnected universe on the big screen spanning nearly a dozen franchises. Over the last few years specifically, the goal was to build towards Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame so that all of these characters can crossover in epic fashion.
Marvel achieved that goal earlier this year and saw Avengers: Endgame become the highest-grossing movie of all-time. Spider-Man: Far From Home may be the official conclusion of the first three Phases of the MCU, but it serves an epilogue to the events of Endgame, which is why it is part of Phase 3 and not kicking off Phase 4. On the whole, the 23 film adventure is now known as The Infinity Saga, and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously confirmed that a box set of the whole saga is on the way.
Now, the day has come and The Infinity Saga box set is officially available at Best Buy (via Comicbook) for pre-order. Officially called “The Infinity Saga Collector’s Edition,” the box set includes all 23 MCU movies released to this point on 4K and Blu-Ray, as well as an exclusive bonus disc filled with “never-before-seen deleted and extended scenes, and more.” Each of the discs are individually packaged in new covers, which can all be held by a special case. In addition to the films, those who purchase the box set will receive an exclusive Matt Ferguson lithograph, a letter from Kevin Feige, and a numbered limited edition collection featuring the autographs of the original six Avengers. The box set costs $549.99 and will arrive on November 15th.
Even though $550 is a lot to pay up for the box set, that averages out to just over $23 for each movie in 4K and on Blu-Ray, which is cheaper than buying them individually. But, since this is likely only something that die-hard MCU fans who already own the movies will purchase, buying the box set is more so for collectors’ purposes. The additional exclusive items and the bonus disc is what we know of now, but there’s also the possibility that more bonus features – like commentary tracks or behind-the-scenes featurettes – will be included as well. There’s even the possibility that this includes digital codes for each of the movies as well.
As for what else The Infinity Saga box set will offer, Marvel’s already shown one of the deleted scenes that will be included. Feige previously debuted an alternate post-credits scene for Iron Man that shockingly included X-Men and Spider-Man references. If this is the first scene released from Marvel’s vault, then who knows what other surprises the bonus disc could hold. Thankfully, with a release date just over a month away, the wait to find out more won’t be that much longer for those who purchase the entire MCU collection of films.
