What's an even odder twist of fate is if the NA versions actually become more desirable because Disney EU seems to not want to put titles on the front and spines anymore for new releases to save some money.

But yes, I've seen the sources from other sites as well.

Kind of how people favor some of the Disney metal boxes like the US Avengers, Cinderella, Brave, Finding Nemo.

I hope Disney does straight out by Scanova so we can have actual Steelbooks and we know by the glossy/embossed metal boxes that they would likely do that with their steels.

And I hope this steelbook is an empty added bonus with the Amaray and not packaged with the discs inside. I have amaray with slip copies of all 3d Marvel titles and I wouldn't mind keeping that trend for a while.

What reason do you prefer it the other way? Or are you saying it won't be for sure?

I do not want empty cases because I think people will find a way to abuse them.

For me the empty case was always unnecessary because I liked just having the steel and always felt bad tossing the amarays, so I have them all just sitting here taking up more space haha.

Also, agreed about abuse, and for me it's just easier to know to go on release date to get the steels rather than checking Best Buy everyday for a week+ because the preorder cases should be out but the store hasn't put them out; to ensure you beat the scalpers to your copy.

I remember when Avengers was out my store didn't put the cases out for over a week after most people here got them and I checked everyday. And the one day I didn't check of course thats when they did it. Luckily there were still 2 left by the time I made it

Has Disney and Scanavo finally kissed and made up?

You really can't make this stuff up! I call it the Steelbook Soap Opera.
It's more like...hey just take some from Futureshop and make sure there isn't any French on them. Then....it'll look like we are bringing SB's back to the US.
I can probably say that there won't be a lot. So once they are gone they will be gone. Kind of like Cpt. Phillips I think.

If there is a Thor 2 steelbook hopefully Best Buy don't do it the same way they did the Captain Phillips steelbook by putting 2 discs in a one hub case.

Knowing how Disney has been stacking discs as of late, that will probably happen.
