Disney’s putting some serious muscle behind its new Disney Movies Anywhere program. The studio, through Marvel, has announced the Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray release date as a full three weeks after its digital counterpart is available for download.
The Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray pack, including a 3D Blu-ray set, will release Sept. 9. The smash-hit sequel will be available via Disney Movies Anywhere on Aug. 19. The Digital 3D version will release on that same August date.
You can click this link to pre-order Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray from Amazon.com. As of this writing Amazon showed the Prime streaming version for $14.99, so we can only imagine the discount they’ll give to the Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray version once it releases.
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Marvel’s first Avenger, Captain America, is teamed with Black Widow and a new ally named The Falcon as they battle their most mysterious and powerful enemy yet: the Winter Soldier.
Starring Chris Evans as Captain America, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Sebastian Stan as The Winter Soldier, Captain America: The Winter Soldier will release on all formats with bonus features that include making-of featurettes, audio commentary, never-before-seen deleted scenes and bloopers.
The one-disc DVD version of Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a bit short-changed in the bonus feature department. According to a Disney release, the DVD version of the film only includes a single making-of featurette and one deleted scene.
By contrast, the Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray release will include making-of featurettes (note the plural form), an audio commentary track, deleted scenes (again, note the plural form), bloopers “and more.” Disney didn’t specify what’s included in the “and more,” probably because they’re still trying to see how much they can fit onto the discs and complete in time for the Sept. 9 release date.
