Captain America: Civil War may be in your home as early as August...

The biggest box office hit of the year so far is heading to DVD and Blu-ray in the UK this September. Amazon UK has revealed the disc release date for Captain America: Civil War is September 5th 2016 in the UK. We suspect a digital HD release may well be available at the end of August, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

Thus far, DVD, Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray versions have been revealed. We suspect there’s going to be a box set in there somewhere too. There’s no official word yet on extra features. We’ll keep you posted on that.

Here’s the Blu-ray page for the movie over at Amazon…

Captain America: Civil War - why Samuel L Jackson was missing

Given just how many of The Avengers turned up in the box office-conquering Captain America: Civil War, one surprise omission was Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury. Why, then, if everybody is fighting, does Nick Fury not pop up and sort it all out?

In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have explained why. It was quite a simple explanation, too. “We didn't want him to take one side or the other, because that's not his place in the universe”, they said.

“And then we didn't want another, 'is he still with the government? Is he opposed to the government but supporting the government?' It got to be the potential for a lot more polemic discussion that the movie did not have room for”.

The film’s running time was already edging towards two and a half hours, so that makes sense. Furthermore, “he's the guy who put it together. He's been the sort of parent figure to the Avengers. Let the parent go away, and see if the kids can handle this. See if the kids can be who they're supposed to be without that governing voice. Um... and they didn't do that good of a job”, Christopher Markus added.

No kidding.

Samuel L Jackson is expected back as Nick Fury in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movies.
