Both films “The Avengers” (2012) and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (2015) are coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on August 14th (the same day as the sequel) via Marvel Studios (Disney). It’s worth noting that both films were directed by Joss Whedon. Pre-order listings are not yet available at Amazon, but stay tuned for an update on that.
UPDATE #2: Alright, we have official confirmation straight from PR for Disney here. The tech specs for both releases will include full 2160p 4K video in the 1.85:1 aspect ratio for “The Avengers” and 2.35:1 aspect ratio for “Avengers: Age of Ultron” with both getting Dolby Atmos sound.
Bonus materials set to be included on the releases have not yet been detailed, even in the press release, but you can likely expect all the previous Blu-ray materials ported over via the included Blu-ray Disc in each “combo pack” which will also include a Digital Copy of each film.
UPDATE #1: Okay, so not only are these coming out it seems as standard 4K releases but they’ll also be getting Exclusive Steelbook 4K UHD Blu-ray releases over at Best Buy, as you’ll find below.
