You have no idea how excited I am that I can start watching the Black Panther Blu-Ray so soon. Black Panther will be released on digital HD and 4K Ultra HD on May 8 and then 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray and On-Demand on May 15.
I figured it was going to be around October before I could check this out.
But with Black Panther firmly nestled as the No. 3 domestic movie and No. 10 worldwide movie all-time, there’s no real point in a delayed release especially since people can take advantage of the release date and binge all but Avengers: Infinity War.
The only thing I was a little disappointed to see in this release was no news of a 3D release. That was also the case with Thor: Ragnarok so I had to go to Amazon.ca to get the movie in 3D. That looks like what I’ll have to do with Black Panther as well. No big deal, besides having to wait until June 11. Hmmn. I could come up with a solid excuse for having two Black Panther Blu-Rays in my collection, right?
Here’s the official release statement:
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, the highly celebrated story of T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), a young African prince who takes on the mantle of King and Super Hero, has thrilled and inspired generations of moviegoers around the globe. Now, fans can bring home the phenomenon, packed with light-hearted fun, pulse-pounding action and a powerful message, and watch it over and over again, Digitally in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ and Movies Anywhere on May 8 and on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on May 15.
