It’s been three months since Avengers: Infinity War release but the fever for the film refuses to die down. Of course, we won’t let it either until Avengers 4 comes knocking on our door.

To excite you once again about this Marvel juggernaut, we have a list of five things you never knew about it. In the Blu-Ray edition released on Tuesday, Marvel Studios shared some really interesting bits about the movie. From the list of definite deaths to why we saw dead people in the movie again, here are a few things to know:

1. Why did Thanos wait so long to find the Infinity Stones?

Avengers: Infinity War was, of course, not the first time we saw Thanos. We have seen him in so many of the 19 Marvel movies so far, brooding, plotting and grinning in his floating chair but Infinity War was when he finally takes the matter in his own hand (literally) and go hunting for the Infinity Stones. So if things were really that easy, why did he not go after the stones before?

Well because before this, he never knew the location of Soul Stone. As we know, Nebula goes after Thanos to kill him between the events of Guardians 2 and Infinity War. He captures her and ravages her memory to realise Gamora indeed knows the whereabouts of the final stone. Without the sixth stone, the entire plan would have been for nothing so it did make sense to wait until he knew where all the stones were.

2. Nod to the comics

When the Guardians run into Thanos at Knowhere, he turns Drax and Mantis to cubes and ribbons. The sequence was a nod to the Jim Starlin’s original Infinity Gauntlet comics, where Thanos does similar things to his enemies.

3. Captain America originally had a very late entry

Chris Evans’ Captain America was supposed to arrive really late in the movie for best effect, even after the battle of Wakanda when Thanos shows up. However, everyone on the team thought it would really be too crazy and decided to bring him in like Dumbledore in that fabulous behind-the-train scene shot in Scotland.

4. How many days are covered in the movie?

While not everyone is sure about it, the common idea is that the events of the movie took two days in their entirety.

5. The one thing that was non-negotiable

Wong’s line “I wouldn’t say no to a tuna melt” was in every single draft of the script. The fourth part of Avengers is up for release in May 2018.
