Marvel Studios today released the details for the home releases of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, listing what the Digital and Blu-ray packs will include - as well as what they won’t.
Set for a digital release of August 19, 2014 and a 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray, DVD, and On-Demand release of September 9, 2014, the critical success and fan-favorite Winter Soldier will include some of the industry standard special features like Making-ofs and Blooper reels. However, it will not include a “Marvel One-Shot,” the short films that have been included with every home release since the first Thor (five in all). In fact, two of those one-shots, Item 47 and Agent Carter have gone on to inspire full TV series, pointing to the format’s success.
Marvel’s “Agent M” on twitter, Ryan Penagos, confirmed the news, saying the “Blu-ray is jam-packed, but I can confirm there will be no corresponding One-Shot released.” While he, nor anyone else at Marvel, is unable to comment on the future of the One-Shots as a whole program, this is the first release since 2011 without one.
So what will be on the home release of Winter Soldier? There will be “Making-of Featurettes, Audio Commentary, Never-Before-Seen Deleted Scenes, Bloopers, and more” - just don’t expect the and more to be a short film.
