In a few weeks’ time, the internet is going to suddenly be full of a whole lot more gifs of some of those epic fights from Avengers: Infinity War, because you’ll finally be able to watch it on Blu-ray or digital in the comfort of your own home. As always, it’s gonna be packed with extras.
In addition to in-depth breakdowns of Infinity War’s more complicated scenes, both the digital release (out July 31) and the Blu-ray of the film (out August 15) are set to include both extended and deleted scenes.
Along with your standard audio commentary track from directors Anthony and Joe Russo and co-writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the digital release will also include a roundtable discussion between all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s previous directors about their roles in crafting the movies.

Because Marvel’s in the business of making as much money as it possibly can, Infinity War will also be available as a “Multi-Screen Edition”, which includes a Blu-ray and a Digital Copy of the film.
If 4K Ultra HD is something that’s important to you, there’s also the clunky-named “4K Cinematic Universe Edition”, which, well, comes with a 4K Ultra HD copy of the movie.
