Avengers fans will soon be able to grab the popular movie on Blu-ray and DVD at Target stores, with a little bonus added to the action.

Starting September 25, the retail outlet will be selling the blockbuster film for $32.99. For that you get both the Blu-ray and DVD edition in one single package.

But Target is throwing in a bonus disc called "Building a Dream: Assembling the Avengers." The extra 90-minutes of footage will show how the original Iron Man, Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America films were developed, forging the array of mighty superheroes to eventually assemble into the Avengers.

The bonus disc features interviews and footage of the stars, directors, and other creative talents behind the various films. Different creators of the comic books are also on hand to share their thoughts about the growth of Marvel from comics to movies.

Beyond the bonus disc, the package also includes a Marvel short feature, a gag real, and an interactive second-screen experience, according to Target.

Buyers can preorder the film through Target's Web site. Shipping will cost unless you spend at least $75 on the total order.

Director by cult favorite Joss Whedon, the "Avengers" hit theaters in April and has since become the third-highest grossing film of all time.
