    Target has the Blu Ray/3d/Digital plus a Making Of Digital Download exclusive for $22.99

    Family Video sells the Blu Ray for $20.99 ($1.99 shipping though there are codes out there for free shipping)

    The DVD alone can be had for $14.99 in several places like Walmart.

    I buy Blu Rays now for the video quality, though I'll still pick up an inexpensive DVD for movies where that or the extras doesn't matter for me. Looking at what's included though here though it looks like the DVD doesn't even get the Audio Commentary which sucks. There's no excuse for that.

    Edit: The South Korea Steelebook special editions are awesome

    One thing that shocked me in the audio commentary was how often they said that actor X or actress Y or Feige or D'Esposito came up with ways to improve scenes on set or the editing room. When even Sam Jackson talked to the Russos about how they should light a scene differently, suddenly my confidence about the directors in Cap 3 is not longer that high

    Why? Film is a collaborative art form even if the Director or Producer has the final say. Marvel in particular is a studio that heavily relies on it's in house producers and personnel for a certain level of quality control as well as shaping projects. That's what all the great Producer lead movie studios did in the age before the rise of Director as Auteur. That didn't mean they didn't work with great directors (Hitchcock, Ford, Curtis, Fleming etc)

    That a director feels confident and not threatened to take in new ideas when filming is not a discredit and in the end it's the directors choice whether to use or discard those opinions. A director or pair of directors in this case has multiple departments and hundreds - no thousands - of people to oversea and coordinate, many experts in their particular field. If they aren't open to suggestions it would be a mess.

    In a continuing series like this the actors also know their characters better than the Directors do, they've lived with them for years. Doing most of their work on TV where directors rarely if ever direct every episode of a show the Russos would be familiar with this.

    Unless you're a rarity like Bong who shoots his edit while filming, a movie is shaped in the editing booth. The Russos according to Evans like to shoot a lot of coverage so they have multiple angles and takes in which to edit from. Most of the greatest directors heavily rely on their editors when cutting a film. It's why they're nominated for awards - they're not just holding the figurative scissors.

    yeah I know all that and I'm aware that I overeact here a bit, it was just the ridiculous amount of times this was brought up in the commentary that was unusual. the outcome was great and I'm really not THAT worried as I sounded in my last post (I just reread it, It read like a panicked, which wasn't the case - something was lost in translation)

    It's strange but it's out tomorrow (Monday) over here in the UK. Maybe we get a lot less extras-wise. I know there's no digital copy for starters.

    I can't believe the BR isn't out there in the US yet. I've watched Cap2 6 times over the last 5 days
