If you have been living under a rock, you might not know that the biggest movie EVER – Avengers: Endgame – is coming home on blu-ray this week! We finally get to cry like babies in the comfort of our own homes. But the best part about it is the Avengers: Endgame bonus features. All of them are worth watching — more than once.
Avengers: Endgame is filled with emotional moments. Almost the entire movie has my heart pounding. Even though I have seen it seven times already. It is almost as if I am more nervous knowing what is coming next. If you are a comic book reader, then you know there are many amazing comic book references and Easter Eggs in Avengers: Endgame.
If you have not seen Avengers: Endgame yet, you are truly missing out. It is one of my all time favorite movies. But at least now you can watch some amazing bonus features along with it.

Bonus Features Worth Watching
My absolute favorite part about a home release is the bonus features. Not only do you get to see what is put in to the movie, you get to see what was taken out. The behind the scenes and blooper reels are always good — but the deleted scenes are where it is at for me.
Avengers: Endgame has a lot of bonus features. All of which are worth watching. Here is the complete list:
- Remembering Stan Lee – Filmmakers and cast honor the great Stan Lee in a fond look back at his MCU movie cameos.
- Setting The Tone: Casting Robert Downey Jr. – Hear the tale of how Robert Downey Jr. was cast as Tony Stark in the original “Iron Man” — and launched the MCU.
- A Man Out of Time: Creating Captain America – Trace the evolution of Captain America with those who helped shape the look, feel and character of this compelling hero.
- Black Widow: Whatever It Takes – Follow Black Widow’s journey both within and outside the Avengers, including the challenges she faced and overcame along the way.
- The Russo Brothers: Journey to Endgame – See how Anthony and Joe Russo met the challenge of helming two of the biggest films in cinematic history … back-to-back!
- The Women of the MCU – MCU women share what it was like to join forces for the first time in an epic battle scene — and be part of such a historic ensemble.
- Bro Thor – His appearance has changed but his heroism remains! Go behind the scenes to see how Bro Thor was created.
- Six Deleted Scenes – “Goji Berries,” “Bombs on Board,” “Suckiest Army in the Galaxy,” “You Used to Frickin’ Live Here,” “Tony and Howard” and “Avengers Take a Knee.”
- Gag Reel – Laugh along with the cast in this epic collection of flubs, goofs and gaffes from set.
- Visionary Intro – Intro by directors Joe and Anthony Russo.
- Audio Commentary – Audio commentary by directors Anthony and Joe Russo, and writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
All of these are fantastic. Bro Thor had me cracking up, as did the Gag Reel. But several of them hit me right in the feels and had me crying. Black Widow, Remembering Stan Lee, and a certain deleted scene.
Avengers Take a Knee
I loved each and every deleted scene, but man Avengers Take a Knee really REALLY got to me. I did a reaction video, which you can check out, and see that I cried. Like a lot. It broke me. If you don’t already know, I am Team Iron Man all the way. Always have been. I love that man.
Luckily some of these Avengers: Endgame memes had me laughing, and put me in a better mood after watching it.
Remembering Stan Lee
Because apparently Avengers: Endgame isn’t depressing enough, the Russo Brothers and Marvel Studios decided to add a tribute to Stan Lee to the bonus features. This featurette is pretty amazing. We see a lot of the cast talking about when they first met Stan, and what he meant to them. That he was always a bright light on set and in a great mood. I miss that man. So much.
R.I.P. Stan Lee. Thank you so much for everything you have done for us geeks. You created an incredible world that we were lucky enough to step in to. THANK YOU.
We love you, 3000.
