As usual, it looks like we can expect plenty of "Making of" featurettes that will take us behind the scenes of the mega blockbuster to explore the characters, VFX, and more, and that's not to mention a commentary with the directors and screenwriters (which is sure to be equally, if not more, informative). Those dates again are July 31st for Digital HD and August 14th for Blu-ray/DVD, so if you're one of the millions of Marvel fans who enjoyed their biggest epic yet, be sure to take note of when you can finally bring it home.
