It’s a long wait for INFINITY WAR 2, and fortunately there’s plenty of bonus scenes on the AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Blu-ray to occupy your time while you wait.

Make sure you get access to the digital version of AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, as it contains a 30-minute roundtable discussion with MCU directors Anthony and Joe Russo, Jon Favreau, Joss Whedon, James Gunn, Ryan Coogler, Peyton Reed and Taika Waititi who reflect on how their movies contribute to the MCU’s larger storytelling adventure. It’s interesting to see Joss Whedon back in the Marvel fold after stepping away following AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.
