The Marvel comic book blockbuster hit movie of summer 2011, “Captain America: The First Avenger,” is set to arrive on DVD, Blu-ray, and even Blu-ray 3D next month. In addition to the customary added features, including deleted scenes and behind the scenes looks, the Blu-ray of “Captain America” will also include a sneak peek at the filming of “The Avengers” as well as another “S.H.I.E.L.D.” short film.
In “The Avengers,” which has been in production for some time now and is scheduled for release in 2012, Chris Evans will reprise his role as Steve Rogers a.k.a Captain America. The Boston born actor says the new film will showcase a relatively more complex and troubled version of his character.
The “Captain America” Blu-ray will have plenty of extras to enjoy between featurettes exploring the film’s special effects, behind the scenes looks at the filming process of “The Avengers,” and a “S.H.I.E.L.D.” short where the character Agent Coulson played by actor Clark Gregg, featured in the “Iron Man” films and this year’s “Thor,” gets some fighting action himself.
“Captain America,” the action packed blockbuster, with its visually thrilling set pieces and special effects, is a movie that stands to really benefit from the Blu-ray format.
