One of the Best-Looking Design Ideas for THE AVENGERS DVD/Blu-Ray Box Set EVER!

Marvel’s The Avengers has had a huge success at the box office. All of the movies prior to The Avengers have also had great success: The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man & Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America. So to make the fans happy (or not…), Marvel is going to be releasing a TEN DISC Blu-Ray Box Set! Yes, this is a bit overkill. Most fans have already purchased the movies prior to The Avengers. Anyways, here’s what is included in the limited edition set:

  • Marvel’s The Avengers (Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray)
  • Captain America: The First Avenger (Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray)
  • Thor (Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray)
  • Iron Man 2 (Blu-ray)
  • The Incredible Hulk (Blu-ray)
  • Iron Man (Blu-ray)
  • Bonus Disc – “The Phase One Archives” (Blu-ray)
  • Collectible packaging with exclusive memorabilia from the Marvel Cinematic Universe

We shall see how well this does. It may do well, just because of the “extras” that are included. What’s hilarious is that there is no mention of Ang Lee’s version of the Hulk. It’s the red-headed step-child of Marvel’s movies. Marvel better have really good packaging for the set though. From the teaser poster, it just looks like it might be a brief case… What it should be is what Dave Delisle over at Dave’s Geeky Ideas has created, which looks to the be the best packaging idea for the Blu-Ray set EVER! What do you think?

This case was designed to hold the entire library of Marvel films starting with The Avengers, to every other movie prior to and future ones! It is based on SHIELD’s Helicarrier and is can hold at least 30 discs. Adding more trays to the main hull can grow that number to 50. Yes, it’s a bit rough on details and not-to-scale but that can always be worked out. He estimates it would be approximately 26″ long x 16″ wide x 12″ tall. Now how would you like that topping your shelf!?

   

   

Dave also would like to add the feature of adding removable “wings” of the helicarrier to be individual cases. It’s an interesting concept. You should also check out his other stuff here.

G4 Will Premiere Marvel’s Original Anime Series Iron Man and Wolverine in July

This summer, G4 and Marvel team up to bring fans a whole new way to see their favorite Super Heroes with the premiere of two original Marvel anime series, “Iron Man” and “Wolverine.”  The eagerly anticipated series will air exclusively on G4 with twelve half-hour weekly episodes that include interconnecting storylines and cameo appearances by several popular Marvel characters. G4 viewers can be part of all the action when “Iron Man” premieres on Friday July 29th at 11pm ET/PT followed by “Wolverine” at 11:30pm ET/PT and will air weekly Fridays from 11:00-Midnight ET/PT. With epic battles, action-packed storylines and mind-blowing animation, these series star some of the most popular Super Hero comic book characters of all time. And for more intense action, two new Marvel anime series—X-Men and Blade—will premiere later this year, exclusively on G4.

G4 is the exclusive U.S. television home of the four brand-new anime series, guided by New York Times best-selling author Warren Ellis (Iron Man: Extremis, Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis) and produced by Madhouse for Marvel Entertainment and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan (SPEJ).  Adrian Pasdar (“Heroes,” “Castle,” “Profit”) will lend his voice to the character of Tony Stark in “Iron Man” while Milo Ventimiglia (“Heroes,”  “Gilmore Girls,” “Rocky Balboa”) takes on the title role in “Wolverine.”

“Iron Man”
In an effort to make amends for his past in weapons manufacturing, Tony Stark has dedicated himself to building the world up rather than tearing it down. Traveling to Japan to build a new arc reactor that will deliver unlimited free energy to the Japanese people, Stark is challenged by the Japanese government and the media when he attempts to import the necessary nuclear priming device.  When the nuclear reactor is repeatedly attacked by the mysterious Zodiac consortium, Stark must gather his allies to take on Zodiac and its mastermind.

“Wolverine”
Based on the popular graphic novel by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, the series begins when Mariko, the love of Logan’s life, is forced back to Japan by her crime-lord father, Shingen. Logan vows to get her back at any cost. He is plunged into a chaotic world of corruption and violence, forcing him to team up with young assassin, Yukio, to battle their way through the Japanese criminal underworld.
