Here's additional information the Wachowskis revealed at the panel:

Despite rumors, there will be no new director's cuts. The brothers said they were very happy with the original theatrical versions.

There will be two audio commentaries for each film - one from philosophers Ken Wilber and Cornel West (who analyze the meanings behind the films), and one from three professional critics who hated all three films (no names given). According to Andy Wachowski, "It's the best idea we've ever had. It's hilarious. They just sit there and rip the shit out of us for six hours."

All the footage shot for the Enter the Matrix videogame is present on the DVD for Matrix Reloaded. However, it is not cut into the film - it's a separate special feature you can view scene-by-scene.

Finally, the Wachowskis said that none of the special features from the original DVD releases of the trilogy will be reproduced except for what you find on Discs 2 and 7. You may see some of the same footage re-edited, but if you want to own all of the extras you'll need to keep your original DVDs too.

So there you have it, straight from a Bits reader who was there. Todd and I actually saw the Wachowskis at the Burly Man booth in the dealer room, so we know there were on hand for all the Comic-Con fun. Our thanks to Doug for his efforts and for sending all this information to us to post for all of you.


EDIT:

MATROX = MATRIX

My bad...

yeah, so, the footage shot for the game probably wouldn't match very well (reloaded is already 2 hours and 8 min, another hour would make it too long imo.

Well apparently the scenes are suppose to provide the "Oh yeah..." factor to the movie.

No, they don't.

An extended cut with the ETM footage would've been horrible.

The scenes DID provide some crucial backstory to some of the sequences in RELOADED, but they wouldn't blend well with the rest of the film if they were just dropped in the theatrical cut.

Well, it seems that those who have actually seen the footage all seem to say that it would have badly affected the flow of the movie. So I'm beginning to to agree. But I like the fact that they're going to include it at least for those of us who haven't seen the game.

So the disc will contain the theatrical cut of the movie without any alterations?
