Three months after it stormed into theaters, Avengers: Infinity War will finally land in all of our living rooms.

The Marvel Studios juggernaut, a crossover event a decade in the making, will be available digitially beginning July 31, followed by a Blu-ray release on August 14, the company announced Tuesday. The release will include more than two hours of bonus features, including featurettes, commentary, deleted scenes, and a gag reel. To get everyone especially fired up for the release, Marvel dropped a new trailer featuring footage never officially released online before. Check it out and relive some of the film's best moments:

So, what can you expect from those bonus features? Well, the featurettes will include segments devoted to the massive visual effects and filming efforts that went into the battles on Titan and Wakanda, as well as a featurette devoted to Thanos himself and "Strange Alchemy," a featurette breaking down exactly how and why the various heroes were paired together in the film for the first time.

In the deleted scenes, we'll finally get a look at Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) as part of the Infinity War crew as he interrupts a wedding planning session between Tony Stark and Pepper Potts. We'll also see more of Thanos and Gamora's journey to find the Soul Stone, more of what happened to the Guardians after encountering Thanos on Knowhere, and more of Scarlet Witch and Vision attempting to hid from the Children of Thanos in Scotland. It's not a huge amount of deleted footage (a little more than 10 minutes based on Marvel's timestamps), but it'll add some detail to an already packed movie.

If you're interested in the hardcore filmmaking side of the Infinity War story, you can go beyond the featurettes and into the commentary, which will feature directors Joe and Anthony Russo and screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, but that's not all. If you buy the film digitally, you'll get an exclusive directors' roundtable feature reflecting on 10 years of making movies in the MCU. The participants: the Russo Brothers, Joss Whedon (The Avengers), Jon Favreau (Iron Man), James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy), Ryan Coogler (Black Panther), Peyton Reed (Ant-Man), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). Now, that's an all star lineup of filmmakers.
