In the first double feature release to hit a next-gen format, Lionsgate will bring the direct-to-video 'Ultimate Avengers' and its sequel 'Ultimate Avengers 2' to Blu-ray on April 24.
Dubbed the 'Ultimate Avengers Collection,' both full-length features will come packaged on a single BD-50 dual-layer disc. Tech specs include 1.78:1 widescreen 1080p video transfers (no codec info yet), plus Dolby Digital Surround EX tracks.
Lionsgate will also port over a wealth of bonus features originally seen on the standard-def DVD versions of the series, including the "The Ultimates," "Avengers Assemble" and "The Ultimate Voice Talent Search" featurettes, trivia tracks for each film, a trailer gallery and special preview of the direct-to-video "Doctor Strange" movie.
Lionsgate has set a very reasonable $39.95 list price for the double feature.
