Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase One Box Set Moves To Spring 2013, Will Undergo Changes
Like many of you, I was thoroughly depressed to hear that the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase One Box Set was in danger of being cancelled, but now it looks as though some good news has surfaced online. While the set won't look the same as it did and it won't be available at the end of the month like originally announced, Marvel is still planning to bring together their first six movies in one package soon enough.
Coming Soon reports that the box set has not been cancelled, but will instead be moved to next spring with changes to the design being planned. As reported earlier this week, German suitcase company Rimowa GmbH sued Marvel Studios over the release, as while they had agreed to let one of their designs be used in The Avengers, they didn't say it would be okay for the studio to use the same design for any other purpose. An official release date has not yet been announced, nor have the details about the extent of the changes.
The 10-disc set was made to look like the suitcase used by Nick Fury and the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to transport the Tesseract. The package included both Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D versions of The Avengers, Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor and Blu-ray versions of Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk. In addition to the case, the original model of the box set was to include a Tesseract that lights up when put in the case as well as other props from the films (such as a set of Captain America trading cards, a newspaper clipping about Iron Man and more).
As I have already sold my copies of all the solo movie Blu-rays, I will definitely be one of the people that will be waiting for the box set to arrive in stores. But what about you guys? Are you going to wait until spring before picking up a copy of The Avengers or are you just too excited to wait? Let us know in the comments section below.
