Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios have announced that "Thor" will be smiting your NetFlix queue on September 13th. And you have three options for your Norse beefcake-viewing pleasure:
Standard DVD (they still make those?)
Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack
And, for those who actually sit dead-center in their living rooms wearing cataract glasses while the rest of their family watches blurry Frost Giants....the all-out 3D Blu-ray/Blu-ray/DVD combo packs.
But the biggest selling point of the upcoming home video versions is hidden deep within the official press release: "a sneak peek into Marvel's The Avengers."

What could it be? A teaser trailer? A behind the scenes featurette? A special greeting from Agent Coulson? We don't know. But we are anxious to find out.
The other hinted at special features include a look into the history of Thor within the Marvel Universe (who doesn't want to see a Walt Simonson-style "KRAK-A-THOOOM" in 1080p?), and something described as "an unprecedented look inside the world of director Kenneth Branagh." A tour of his bedroom? His diary? A 3D colonoscopy? The mind boggles!
No matter what, 'tis an epic release indeed. We'll have a full review on Sept. 13th.
