King T’Challa has come home to Wakanda — and now, he’s coming home with you. Disney announced today that Black Panther will be available digitally on May 8 and on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD on May 15. The home release will wrap up the film’s historic box-office run: As of this weekend, the Marvel film has earned $665 million, surpassing Titanic as the third-highest-grossing movie in U.S. history.
Both the digital and Blu-ray editions of Black Panther are packed with special features, including four deleted scenes: one featuring Okoye (Danai Gurira) and W’Kabi (Daniel Kaluuya), who we all know deserved more screen time; one in which T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) remembers his father; one that takes place at the U.N.; and one called “Voices from the Past” (perhaps involving the ancestral plane? Or if we’re lucky, more Sterling K. Brown?). There’s also a roundtable discussion about the making of the film and featurettes about Wakanda’s culture, technology, and female warriors. Also: a gag reel. (Please let it involve Shuri rapping.) The digital edition comes with two exclusive ads for “Wakanda tourism” — as if they’d need to sell anybody on that vacation.
Black Panther, which opened in February, is the biggest U.S. box-office hit in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date. (Worldwide, it still lags $1 million behind 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and $2 million behind 2012’s The Avengers — but give it a few more weeks.) Two more Marvel films are slated to hit theaters this year: Avengers: Infinity War on April 27 and Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6.
