UK Edition Of THE AVENGERS DVD/Blu-Ray Won't Feature Joss Whedon's Commentary
Well, this is extremely disappointing. The UK (and presumably the rest of Europe) will not be getting Joss Whedon's commentary on the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of Marvel's The Avengers/Avengers Assemble. As you can see from the Tweets below, the ever reliable folks over at Empire Magazine confirmed the news earlier today.
Disney have reportedly confirmed that the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of
Marvel's The Avengers Avengers Assemble in the UK will NOT feature Joss Whedon's highly anticipated commentary on the $1 billion box office hit.
If this is the price that those of us on this side of the pond have to pay for getting the DVD and Blu-ray a measly eight days sooner, I think most fans would agree that a wait of just an extra week or so would have been perfectly acceptable for the inclusion of such an essential extra. The excuse made by Disney just isn't good enough, and the fact that there are no plans in future to make this available to non-US residents is a pretty poor way to treat the UK fans who contributed over $80 million to its worldwide total at the box office.
