[[wysiwyg_imageupload:2492:]]September 25th was to see The Marvel The Avengers Phase One Box set that featured all of the Marvel Studios movies packaged in the "indestructible" briefcase that housed the Cosmic Cube.

But there was just one problem, and that problem was Disney never asked the luggage company that made the movie version for permission to use its likeness.

Amazon ended up pulling the box set with a lawsuit brought on by Rimowa, as did the official Disney DVD site.

However, not all is lost as we learn The Phase One box set will still be coming out, albeit not until some time next year with new packaging (via EW).

I know lots of fans were upset that the Phase One box set was pulled, as it looks just so darn cool; however, I am betting that Disney and Marvel Studios will come up with something just as good if not better.

In the mean time, while you wait for the box set, The Avengers movie Blu-Ray will see a September 25th release with a host of goodies.

The Avengers movie assembles May 4th, 2012 and is directed by Joss Whedon, starring Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye.
