UPDATED! Captain America: The First Avenger Blu-ray dated and detailed

Hot damn, Cap‘s coming to Blu-ray sooner than I thought! Though Paramount have yet to officially announce it for release in North America, retail pre-orders are confirming that Captain America: The First Avenger will hit Blu-ray in a 2-disc combo pack on October 25th. I’m not seeing any evidence of a 3D version released domestically but this detail, of course, could change. In addition, the domestic package art has yet to be unveiled so the pic you’re looking at below is from the UK pre-order page on (who appear to be showing a multi-disc option with 3D available!) Special features have been detailed and are listed below. No surprises there, unless you count the lack of live-action Avengers teaser trailer as a shock. But I’d put my money on that one showing up on the disc, despite being left off the list. I’ll update the post when there’s some official art to look at or further details revealed.

UPDATE: Aaaaaand we have 3D! Amazon has just hit us with their pre-order for the 3D version of Captain America: The First Avenger. No details have been posted on the page but I think it’s safe to assume that combo pack will include all the same features as the 2D pack, with the inclusion of a 3D Blu-ray disc. Package art has now also been updated to reflect the North American releases.
