Following it’s release in early November, Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok is now available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD.

The film includes a whole lot of bonus content and some of the features are pretty fun to watch.  As tends to be the case with most Blu-ray releases for huge films, content may differ with each retailer.  Not to be outdone, the Digital release includes a few exclusive features in its own right.  It’s because of this that there really ought to be some consistency with every retailer getting the same bonus content.  It’s not fair to the consumer in that regard.
