Last week, fans received notices of a potential delay regarding preorders of the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase One Box Set (first revealed during Comic-Con).
Planned for release on September 25th (the same day Marvel’s The Avengers hits DVD and Blu-ray), the set was to include Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray presentations of The Avengers, Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor, as well as Blu-ray versions of Iron Man, Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk and the discs were to be housed in a replica of Nick Fury’s briefcase alongside a light-up model Tesseract and many other prop replicas straight from the films.
Speculation suggested that the delay was due to a pending lawsuit on the part of the company that manufactured the case for the film and some fans feared that the set may be cancelled altogether.
There’s some positive news today, however, as the Phase One set will indeed see a release next spring instead of later this month. The case design will change, although we’re not sure how significantly. Check back for details as they become available.
