At first glance, these may sound like marketing-heavy tactics to get fans excited to see Avengers: Infinity War, and that’s not an incorrect statement. But what’s really cool is the way they recap each character’s journey and offer a glimpse of what’s to come in Infinity War… and beyond. If you’re a fan of these films, odds are you already own most of them with a digital copy. The few that predate the Combo Pack are on sale for a limited time if you want to complete your Phase One collection. These could also serve as a helpful resource to share with new fans just now getting into the MCU.
