There’s no denying that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of the highest-grossing film franchises of all time, grossing more than $17 billion since 2008. One of the most recent MCU films is Avengers: Infinity War which has now become one of the high-grossing films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, with earning $2 billion at the box office.

Here’s what Avengers: Infinity War is about:

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

The film is a visual masterpiece with lots of action and little details that make the film even better. You can really see all the skin textures and anger in Thanos’ face, thanks to Josh Brolin’s motion capture performance and advances in technology.

Even though a lot of this film was made in front of green screens, you can really see all the time and effort that went into creating these computer-generated backdrops.

The soundtrack for Avengers: Infinity War, is great and bombastic that help adds to the experience and immerse you in the film.

The Avengers: Infinity War Blu-ray comes with a good amount of extras, there’s the usual deleted scenes and gag reel but some highlights are two featurettes called Beyond the Battle: Titan and Beyond the Battle: Wakanda which gives viewers a behind the scenes look at the making of these two fight scenes in the film.

The audio commentary for the film is fairly insightful, especially coming from directors, Anthony and Joe Russo along with screenwriters, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

If you get the digital version of the film, then you’ll get access to an exclusive featurette called A Director’s Roundtable. This featurette has MCU directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, Jon Favreau, Joss Whedon, James Gunn, Ryan Coogler, Peyton Reed and Taika Waititi sit down and talk about their contributions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
