Avengers: Infinity War is out in Digital HD and people can now finally own the movie for themselves and watch it whenever they want to. Infinity War gave us a worthy beginning to the culmination of everything Marvel had built up since Iron Man, and the first Avengers movie. Marvel has evolved so much since then, and this movie shows exactly that. It offers so much to take in at once that you cannot digest it all with just one viewing! Which is why owning the BluRay edition becomes a necessity!
The BluRay edition is going to include a whole lot of stuff along with the movie itself. There is going to be 45 minutes of extras including the deleted scenes, BTS making of the movie and the infamous bloopers reel of the film. So to summarise, we will be getting 45 minutes of extras which will include:
Intro from Joe and Anthony Russo (1:31)
Gag Reel (2:03)
The Battle of Wakanda Featurette (10:57)
The Battle on Titan Featurette (9:33)

While there is still time for the BluRay release of the film, Marvel has released a part of the amazing gag reel of the movie which is super funny! Comicbook.com has given us the look at the Gag Reel. Follow the given link and have a look at it yourself:
This video shows us how amazing and fun making these movies is for the cast members as they do enjoy a lot amidst all the long shooting days and time they have to invest in the make-up chairs. As we can see from Paul Bettany to Robert Downey Jr. to even the supporting actors like Benedict Wong, everyone seems to be enjoying themselves and that is exactly how it should be on every set of a film.
A few days ago, we got an extended look at the making of the epic battle that takes place at Titan where we get to see Iron Man and Thanos cross each other’s paths for the first time. This scene gives us a look at a different dialogue shared among Josh Brolin’s Thanos and Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark. Have a look at it if you haven’t:
The Gag Reel that has released just now has lightened our mood after the big impact that the dark and brutal ending had upon us. The ending of the movie obviously came as a shock to all of us and for the directors, the shocking ending was always the plan. Here’s what Joe Russo told Comicbook.com about the ending of the movie:
“It was always a plan to show beyond that because when we made the decision to have the snaps themselves, that’s a plot trick to cut to black after an incident like that happens. And it doesn’t give you any emotional resonance or catharsis. What he said thinking about it realistically; the true heartbreak doesn’t lie in the fact that he snapped his fingers, it lies in the fact that people have to watch loved ones, and we have to watch characters that we care about die. And that’s where the real heartbreak lies for the characters who live in the Universe and for those of us watching the movie.”
This movie was completely about the Mad Titan Thanos. Joe Russo also had something to talk about it:
“We always knew that that would be the most profound or some of the most profound beats of the film. We wanted the story, Thanos, even though he’s the villain, to follow the traditional arc of hero beats. In that you have to follow through with what he did and carry him to the ending, self-satisfied, sitting on his porch, feeling the weight of what he’s done in order for him to have the completion. That’s how it wraps up for us and that’s why we say it’s a self-contained story and that there is an ending, it’s just not the ending that you’re used to. And Thanos, if you track all his major beats, they tell a complete story.”
Avengers: Infinity War comes out on BluRay on August 14.
