'Black Panther' Arrives On Digital And Blu-Ray In May, With Director's Commentary And More

Black Panther, Marvel's mega-hit, will be leaping onto Blu-ray and digital a lot sooner than expected – next month. The Black Panther Blu-ray release will come loaded with special features, including deleted scenes and a Ryan Coogler director's commentary.

Have you heard of this small indie movie Black Panther? It's coming to Blu-ray, very soon! Marvel's latest arrives on digital May 8, 2018 and on Blu-ray May 15, 2018. This might seem a bit sooner than expected, especially since the film is still burning up the box office (it just sailed past Titanic to become the third highest-grossing release in domestic box office history) – but no one is going to complain about taking the film home sooner rather than later.

The Blu-ray release will feature a plethora of special features fans are sure to want to sink their claws into. These include behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, a feature devoted to the female characters of the film, and, perhaps best of all, a commentary track from director Ryan Coogler. Coogler is one of the best directors in the MCU, so I'm very interested to hear what he has to say on that commentary track. There's also an exclusive sneak peak at Ant-Man and the Wasp, which I'm sure someone, somewhere, is excited about. Maybe.
