Marvel’s Phase Two Box Set Artwork Is Awesome

Yes, this is the Phase 2 box set. The discs are in the base.

I might be in the minority around here at Gabbing Geek that still purchases physical media and not digital.  I do both, but there is just something I still like about having that plastic case and piece of cardboard with artwork printed on it that still appeals to me.

So on December 8th I will begin my yearning for the complete Marvel Phase 2 Blu-Ray box set.  I’m still waiting for the Phase 1 box set to become super cheap so that I can pick that one up.  Maybe THIS Black Friday is the one!

But back to Phase 2, I can give or take the elaborate Orb and Infinity Stone packaging.  But the artwork for the individual movies caught my eye.  It is in a similar style to the Phase 1 packaging and really manages to capture the essence of each movie in one minimalist image.

Check them out after the break.

The other day I posted the hilarious Honest Trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron.  I commented on how the movie was a disappointment, and part of that was our sky high expectations.  It got me wondering if it would have been better if the ending was different?

Well, the folks over at How It Should Have Ended had the same idea.  After the break, see how they think Age of Ultron should have ended.  And as a bonus, how the first Avengers movie should have ended, even if that first one was already awesome.

Ok, I could have put any image above that was MCU related, but I saw this cool “Road To Infinity War” image and used that.  After the break, check out two videos that cover the MCU from Iron Man to Ant-Man (no Ant-Man spoilers), with…a bit of a sarcastic view of things.  (Note, some NSFW language.)
