The Avengers Phase One Box Set To Offer Exclusives On Iron Man 3, Thor 2, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America 2, Ant-Man


4216 Remember The Avengers Phase One Boxed Set that came with the cool Cosmic Cube briefcase (right)?

And remember how Disney had to pull it as they didn't have the rights to the design?

Well, Cosmic Book News did tell you that Disney would be coming back with something better, and now we learn that is indeed the case.

The Avengers Phase One Box Set is back online for pre-order with an April 2, 2013 release -- and it comes with a host of new goodies that includes a look at the upcoming Phase Two Marvel Studios movies: Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie and Ant-Man.

Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige offered to EW, there will be "footage, concept art, and a few new surprises. Also, look for a nod to Iron Man 3 in the Tony Stark S.H.I.E.L.D. file in the box set.”

Currently filming for Marvel is Iron Man 3 and Thor 2, so we'll most likely see footage from there. We could also see the Ant-Man movie test footage, which has been said to be getting cleaned up for release.

Captain America 2 begins filming in January, so footage from that looks to have pretty much a slim chance of being included.

Regarding Guardians of the Galaxy movie footage, no dates have been announced for filming, but we could see more concept art or possibly a first look at some CGI images of Rocket Raccoon and Groot.

The Avengers Phase One Boxed Set also includes an alternate-ending to Thor with Natalie Portman's character, Jane Foster.

The Avengers 2 assembles May 1, 2015 with Iron Man 3 on May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, and the Guardians of the Galaxy movie on August 1, 2014.

Head on over to the Cosmic Book News The Avengers Movie Hub for more news, images and trailers.
