Warner Brothers Home Video has announced the official street date for Man of Steel‘s Blu-ray release, along with all of the extra goodies included with all of its myriad releases. November 12 will see the release of three different Blu-ray versions, including a 2D combo pack for $35.99 MSRP, a 3D combo pack for $44.95 MSRP, and a 3D Limited Collector’s Edition for $59.99 MSRP. The latter comes in the awesome S-glyph case you see above, with a Lucite glass stand, and as you could probably guess, that’s the one that will be gracing my shelves.
Extras are consistent across all three Blu-ray releases, including:
- Journey of Discovery: Creating “Man of Steel” – This immersive feature-length experience allows you to watch the movie with director Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane and others as they share the incredible journey to re-imagine Superman.
- Strong Characters, Legendary Roles – Explore the legendary characters of the Superman mythology and how they have evolved in this new iteration of the Superman story.
- All-Out Action – Go inside the intense training regimen that sculpted Henry Cavill into the Man of Steel and Michael Shannon and Antje Traue into his Kyptonian nemeses. Includes interviews with cast and crew.
- Krypton Decoded – Dylan Sprayberry (Clark Kent, age 13) gives the lowdown on all the amazing Krypton tech, weapons and spaceships featured in “Man of Steel.”
- Planet Krypton – The world’s first exploration of Krypton and its lost society.
I would have liked to see a little more in the extras department, but the Journey of Discovery and Planet Krypton features sound nifty on the surface, especially the latter. (I fall into the small minority of fans who almost wish they had spent two hours on Krypton and ended with baby Kal-El’s ship landing in Kansas.) At any rate, here’s hoping that the bonus goodies are better than the awful Man of Steel—Inside the Legendary World of Superman book.
A two-disc DVD will also hit the same day (as if anyone still buys those), and funnily enough, it lacks both of the features I’m most interested in. It will be priced at $28.98 MSRP.
Warner has announced at iTunes, Xbox, PlayStation, Amazon, Vudu, CinemaNow, “and more…” digital platforms will also get the movie in standard- and high-def on November 12.
