One of the best things about Marvel's Infinity Saga box set is the collection of deleted scenes from every Marvel Cinematic Universe film that has been released so far.

The Infinity Saga box set also features deleted scenes from Thor: Ragnarok that gives Odin a different death as well as a rare photo of Captain Marvel joining the heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron. The box set is currently available and retails for $549.99.
