Good news for fans of Avengers: Infinity War (and who isn’t?):The movie will be available on digital, Movies Anywhere/Vudu, and 4K UHD on July 31, with the Blu-ray release arriving two weeks later on August 14.  Marvel announced yesterday that digital copies will include a bonus feature, a 30-minute discussion with Marvel Cinematic Universe directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, Jon Favreau, Joss Whedon, James Gunn, Ryan Coogler, Peyton Reed, and Taika Waititi.  Amazon is now taking pre-orders for the HD and 4K/UHD streaming editions, as is Vudu.  Vudu is also releasing a bundle with the first Avengers film and Age of Ultron.  (Am I the only one who sees Captain America: Civil War as a key missing piece to this set?)

And just in case you missed them, Marvel Studios celebrated the 10th anniversary with a release of 33 character posters.  You can probably expect that if the superhero isn’t in this line-up they won’t be key to the sequel next year–except for the lead superheroine of the one movie yet to be released, Captain Marvel, coming March 8, 2019.  Check out all the posters below.  The 32 characters include both those who lived and some who died under Thanos’s power, plus others who didn’t make it into Infinity War at all, like Valkyrie, Korg, Wong, and Hawkeye–really all but the Avengers support team members Happy and Agents Hill and Coulson.  Marvel seems to recognize that fans still want to see more of the characters that made the posters.
