Don't Forget Avengers: Endgame Arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on TUESDAY, AUGUST 13TH -- Pre-Order Your Copy Now and Get Ready For a Fun Family Movie Night! (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent a screener from the vendor, in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Extras celebrate Stan Lee, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Thor, the women of Marvel, the Russo brothers, deleted scenes and gags — and early Digital viewers receive an exclusive Steve and Peggy featurette

Did you catch Avengers: Endgame when it was in theaters?  Due to illness we missed the movie, but have been eagerly awaiting its release to DVD and Blu-Ray.  Thankfully this wait is almost over for Marvel fans at the physical release will happen on Tuesday.  Fans can grab either the 4K Ultra HD, or DVD version of this final installment to the must talked about Marvel series.  

Thanks to the kind folks at Walt Disney Studios, they sent along a copy of the Blu-Ray for my family to watch, which arrived yesterday in the mail.  Usually we would wait until Saturday to watch an unplanned movie -- Fridays are reserved for a movie the girls pick earlier in the week, and we do a themed dinner and activities and crafts before sitting to watch the movie.  But, as seen as my girls saw the Avengers: Endgame Blu-Ray arrive in the mail, they were quick to call my husband at work, and tell him the planned movie night, which was another Disney movie from years ago, would have to be scrapped, as they couldn't wait another day to see this movie.

Talking to family and friends who are Marvel Avengers fans, this last installment had mixed reviews.  Some thought it left more to be desired for an ending, while others said it was just right.  After viewing the movie last night with my family (and then again this AM) I have to agree with those who loved it.  It really was a great way to end this popular Marvel franchise.


"Fans who bring home “AvengersEndgame” will gain hours of additional screen time with their favorite cast members and filmmakers who have shaped the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Bonus features include a tribute to the great Stan Lee; the tale of Robert Downey Jr.’s casting as Iron Man; the evolution of Captain America; Black Widow’s dramatic story arc; directors Anthony and Joe Russo’s experience at the helm of both “Avengers: Infinity War” and “AvengersEndgame”; the making of an epic battle scene with the women of the MCU; the creation of Bro Thor; deleted scenes; a gag reel and more.


The must-own, final chapter of the 22-film MCU series, “Avengers: Endgame,” will be packaged several ways to ensure fans get the most out of their in-home entertainment experience. Viewers can bring home the film two weeks early on Digital 4K Ultra HD, HD and SD and gain access to an exclusive extra highlighting the love story of Steve Rogers (Captain America) and Peggy Carter. A physical copy of “Avengers: Endgame” is available as a 4K Cinematic Universe Edition (4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital Code), a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray and Digital Code) and a single DVD. Fans who wish to revisit all four films in the Avengers franchise may opt for a Digital bundle, which includes “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.”


What I liked about this movie is that it picked up where the first part ended off. And, as the story played out, all the characters who appeared in the previous Avengers movies has their screen time, and viewers were able to see how their roles and stories all came together.  In 181 minutes, this movie had viewers going through all sorts of emotions.  I was cheering on the major characters one minute, and the next being moved to tears, which hasn't happened to me in an Avengers or Marvel movie.  But, when you sit for the movie, if you haven't seen it in theaters already, know that this final installment really does a number on your emotions.  We have all grown to love the major players in the Avengers movies, and knowing that this was the final one, really hit home as you watch the ending play out.  Don't worry, I will not ruin the ending or share any spoilers about the characters.   What I will share, though, is all the great bonus content that is included with the upcoming physical Blu-Ray, DVD and 4K Ultra releases.  These bonus features alone make this a must own movie this summer.  

Just take a look at the extra content that is included, including a special Stan Lee tribute...

So much stuff, right?  Not only do you get to watch an amazing ending to this popular Marvel franchise, but the bonus material makes this upcoming release that much more appealing to Marvel fans.  I am so glad my family was finally able to see Avengers: Endgame, and I know that if you missed it in theaters, you will be happy for it's physical release on Tuesday.  Pick it up Tuesday, or pre-order it now from Amazon to arrive on Tuesday, then get ready to plan an out of this world family movie night.  Your whole family will be talking about the movie for some time to come, and want to watch it time and again like my family.  We watched the movie Friday night, and spent the afternoon today watching all the bonus content.  When it was all done with today, the girls asked if we could watch the movie again on Sunday.  Usually I would say, "No" after watching something so recently, but it really was a stellar movie, and one that I can't wait to watch again.  So, yes, bring on Avengers: Endgame tomorrow for a special family movie night. :-)
