Thor on DVD/Blu-Ray

Still no update on the extras for the upcoming release of the Thor feature film due out on DVD and Blu-Ray on 13 September 2011. However, the three-disc version with Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray 3D, and DVD (plus digital copy) will include (according to Amazon):

- Commentary by director Kenneth Branagh
- Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant (HD)
- Featurettes (HD)
- "Road to the Avengers" (HD)
- 11 Deleted Scenes with optional commentary (HD)
- Trailers (HD)

I expect the DVD will either be a bare-bones release or include only some of these extras, as is now typical.
