Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One
This is pretty cool.
The 10-disc set includes all six Marvel Studios films to date – Iron Man (Blu-ray), The Incredible Hulk (Blu-ray), Iron Man 2 (Blu-ray), Thor (Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray), Captain America: The First Avenger (Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray) and The Avengers (Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray) — plus the bonus “Phase One Archives.” More details will be revealed July 15, which perhaps not coincidentally is the final day of Comic-Con International.

Depending on how much this drops I actually might get it because I only have Iron Man (1). I think I'd be good with paying 120. Right now 150 is a bit much considering 3 of the movies can be had for 15 each.Don't Reach, Young Blood

it's from disney, so my fears are another HORRIBLY cheap and ridiculous disc holder (see Lion King, trilogy) in an otherwise nice package.
I love Disney's Blu-ray discs, but their ideas for special packaging BLOW.

At least they had the foresight to name this "Phase One," but I still hate buying a big special package of movies when I know there are already, what, four to six movies still being planned/filmed?Become a FAN of The Reel Place!

Hehe, why not include the Bana version of The Hulk too?
Like Onslaught X posted above, I wouldn't mind getting this as I only have Iron Man 1 and that was purchased previously viewed from Blockbuster.

I think I will avoid getting this, even though I want all the movies contained within it.
I think having single copies of all the movies you want would look better on the shelf rather then a box set beside a few single copies. Marvel arent anywhere near finished releasing movies.
If Marvel had finished making and releasing the movies, I would have bought a comprehensive box set that contained the lot. This is just the first in what will likely be an endless line of box sets aimed at completists who want all the movies together.

So apparently Marvel didn't get the rights to copy the briefcase being used in this and the set's been delayed with preorders stopped.
Apparently the briefcase that held the superhero film’s MacGuffin, the Tesseract, wasn’t just a generic design but rather one that is copyrighted by the German luggage company Rimowa BhmbH. While the necessary legal paperwork was filed and permission granted for the briefcase’s use in the film, the selling of replicas as part of the deluxe Blu-ray set -- which would have included the run of films directly leading into “The Avengers,” including the Joss Whedon film itself, along with a replica of the so-called Cosmic Cube -- was not part of the deal.
In a complaint filed in federal court in California, the German company alleges that “Marvel did not obtain any license or authorization from Rimowa to make replica copies of the case for any purpose . . . the plastic ‘replica case’ [is] a close copy of Rimowa’s Topas attaché case in every respect but quality -- from the proportions and coloring, to the style of the handle and latches, and, of course, in the use of the trademarked parallel ridges around the body of the case.”

It's being reported that the set will be available in "Spring 2013," so it's still on the books. They probably have to redesign the case. (Or just secure the rights, Disney, for crying out loud.)
