When the planet is threatened by super-villains, time traveling conquerors, mythical monsters or mad robots bent on the total destruction of humanity, when the forces of evil are so overwhelming that no single hero has the power to save the world, when there is no hope left...the AVENGERS assemble! Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Ant-Man, Wasp and The Incredible Hulk. Earth's Mightiest Heroes must band together to protect the world from a break-out of Super-Villains the likes of which no one has never seen. Only the Avengers can stand against this threat, and the fate of the world rests on their shoulders.
In the USA, the folks at Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment have released DVDs for The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes
in volumes (either out now or else coming in late October). On the other hand, Canada's DVD releases through Vivendi Entertainment have so far consisted of semi-season sets, with Season 1, Part 1
already available and Season 1, Part 2
coming out on October 18th
. It's a 2-DVD set which includes bonus material such as interviews with the cast and writers, and a limited edition Avengers poster inside. English and French tracks are included, and it will be available up north for CA$29.95 SRP.
But Marvel and Vivendi of Canada aren't stopping there! They are going the high-def distance with a Blu-ray Disc release of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes - The Complete 1st Season
on November 8th
. Coming on 2 BDs, the cost is CA$39.95 SRP (Amazon.ca's pre-order listing
currently shows the incorrect list price), and it apparently includes all the on-disc bonus material found in Mavel/Vivendi's half-season sets. Here's a look at the package art for the Blu-ray, with the new DVD box displayed underneath that:
