It’s a shame that they couldn’t get the timing better coordinated with the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. comic, but the first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on September 9, just in time for the fall TV season.
In addition to the 22 episodes, there are several bonus features included:
- Audio commentaries with filmmakers and cast
- The “Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe” TV Special
- “Journey Into S.D.C.C.”, described as a way to “share the thrill of a lifetime as the series makes its first ever appearance at San Diego Comic-Con, where the cast is welcomed with open arms by a sea of enthusiastic fans”
- Five behind-the-scenes featurettes, called “Field Reports”, which explore the making of favorite episodes: “The Malibu Jump”, “The Bridge”, “Asgardian Bar Fight”, “Classified”, “Cello Duet”
- VFX breakdowns, which use split frames to compare effect sequences to the final versions
- Deleted scenes
- A gag reel
