I admit I’m a bad film fan. I’ve been pushing off buying a Blu-ray player for one reason or another forever. But damn, if I haven’t found what’s going to sell me one, because there’s no way I’m not going to have this box set in my house. Disney has just released information about the “Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled” set, and while it’s nothing like that fan-designed helicarrier case it’s so much cooler.

Six movies (with cases inspired by the whole “minimalist poster” trend), ten discs (including a bonus disc “filled never before seen, classified information”), folders filled with prop replicas, oh yea, and it comes in a case with a light-up Tesseract!
