Marvel fans are going to be able to bring the action home this summer, as Avengers: Endgame is coming to digital platforms next month, followed by a physical release in August. The news was officially announced by Marvel today. One of the biggest movies of all time (and possibly the biggest of all time when it's all said and done) will be available on Digital HD on July 30. The 4K Ultra HD and Blur-ray/DVD release is set to follow on August 13.
To commemorate the occasion, Marvel has released a brand new trailer for the epic blockbuster. At this point, it's quite clear they're just assuming everyone has seen the movie, as it's loaded down with virtually every big moment. So, needless to say, if you're one of the few out there who hasn't seen it yet, best avoid the trailer. But for those that want to check out it, we've included it below.
As for special features? Marvel didn't skimp on the goods. While there is something to be desired in behind the scenes content, there's a lot to enjoy. Here's a full breakdown of what fans will get for their money.

To say that expectations were high for Avengers: Endgame would be a dramatic understatement. This was, not to overstate things, one of the most highly-anticipated movies ever released. Yet, somehow, directors Joe and Anthony Russo managed to pull it off. To date, it's grossed a record-breaking $2.75 billion at the global box office, second to only James Cameron's Avatar.
This weekend, Marvel is re-releasing Endgame in theaters with some additional post-credit content, including a deleted scene and a tease for Spider-Man: Far From Home. The re-release could help give the Marvel heroes that little boost they need to best Avatar. For those who would rather wait and watch the movie again from the comfort of their own homes, the wait won't be that much longer.
