Now that we’ve all seen Ant-Man (and if you haven’t what are you waiting for?), we have a long wait ahead of us until Captain America: Civil War hits theaters in May of 2017. Which means that the only way some of us are going to last that long is by picking up the home releases of this years crop of Marvel Studios films, starting with Avengers: Age of Ultron. This epic blockbuster sequel to the original franchise-combining nerdgasm from Joss Whedon brought in a ton of money and impressed fans across the board.
The recent trailer for the blu-ray release has us remembering everything we loved about the film while hyping us up to see what we missed. Of course, you could wait for the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Two Collector’s Edition we told you about earlier in the week, but this trailer below just might change your mind.
Yup, I can’t wait to buy this. First of all, after many months of debate among fanboys, we finally have official confirmation on which Infinity Stones we’ve seen so far in the MCU thanks to the “Unlock the Infinite Six” featurette teased here.
We learned in Avengers: Age of Ultron that the stone that resided within Loki’s sceptre, and now on Vision’s forehead was the Mind Stone. The trailer then confirms that the Tesseract is the Space Stone, the Aether from Thor: The Dark World is the Reality Stone, and the first named Infinity Stone from Guardians of the Galaxy is the Power Stone. This leaves the Soul and Time Stones, which are arguably two of the most powerful Stones still floating around the MCU.
We can predict that the Soul Stone might show up in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, which fans of the comics/characters might know belongs to Adam Warlock, who has been rumored/teased a few times in the MCU so far. As for the Time Stone, we can only guess which upcoming film in Phase Three will have the honor of dealing with that particular sticky wicket.
We don’t have too much info on other features besides what’s teased in the trailer, but you can check it out for yourself on September 8 when Avengers: Age of Ultron is released digitally, or on October 2nd for the hardcopies.
