Nothing can be released on DVD, Blu-ray or VOD in the UK without first being submitted to the BBFC for a certiciate. I think we’ve made it quite clear what we think about some of their recent decisions.
One side effect of their approval process is that details of DVD packages can be sniffed out before the official announcements come. Today, for example, I can see what the Captain America: The First Avenger home entertainment release is going to contain. Looks like we’re in for 71 minutes and 23 seconds of supplements.

There is also an audio commentary listed as a separate item.
Okay, some items are listed twice – with and without commentary – but there’s a good Sunday afternoon’s worth of mucking about here. Note the two short items called The Avengers and The Avengers – Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Pair of trailers, I’d imagine.
Note that it’s not revealed if all of these will be on the DVD or some items will be Blu-ray only. I expect it’s the latter as we have the next Agent Coulson One Shot listed, and I believe the first was a HD only supplement for Thor.
UPDATE: Paramount have now announced the release, so I’ve added a piece of cover art at the head of the story. Here’s their version of what we can expect on the disc. It’s a similar, but less detailed list.
