Avengers: Age of Ultron has already grossed over $200 million in international release and will likely add at least that much to its grand total when it opens this weekend in the United States. Since the first film in 2012, fans have been patiently waiting for more Avengers action and that’s exactly what Joss Whedon delivers with the sequel.
Now, it seems like we might not have to wait until the third Avengers for more Avengers. Amazon.co.uk sent an e-mail to their users offering a pre-order of the Age of Ultron Blu-ray. According to their e-mail, the disc will include an extended version of the film and an alternate ending. However, Whedon said the disc will have deleted scenes, they just won’t be cut into the film. What about that alternate ending though? Read more about the Avengers: Age of Ultron Blu-ray below.
As mentioned, the Age of Ultron Blu ray news comes from an Amazon e-mail captured by ScreenCrush. Here’s the image:
We contacted Disney Theatrical and Home Video about this story but they had no comment. Amazon, however, has added this note to the Avengers pre-order page: “Note to Customers on Bonus Features – Please note that the bonus features on this product have not been confirmed and may be subject to change.” That’s almost certainly them covering their mistake.
To add context to this story, Joss Whedon recently told Flicks in the City there will be lots of deleted scenes on the Blu-ray, just not edited into the film.
Taking that Amazon e-mail in conjunction with Whedon’s quotes, you have to think the truth of the matter is this: the disc should feature a lot of deleted scenes, one of which may be an alternate ending. But if we’re being realistic, I wouldn’t expect anything huge or game-changing. This is purely speculative but I’d imagine – if anything – the ending is just a different edit of the ending that’s currently in the film. Also, someone will eventually edit those deleted scenes into the movie, creating an extended edition, but that’s not Whedon’s vision.
