Burnett also hinted that Fox may create a special-edition DVD of "X2: X-Men United" to coincide with the May theatrical opening of "X-Men 3," similar to the studio's "X-Men 1.5" that hit DVD when "X2" opened theatrically in 2003. He added that there's plenty of material left over from the original "X2" DVD. "There just wasn't enough time," he said.
Chances are they'll release another box set after X3 so personally I'll probably just wait until then.

With Ratner at the helm of X3, I'll be happy to only own the first two. But on topic, I'd pick up an X-Men 2.5 depending on how much new material is included, although I am happy with the current release.
I double dip for directors cuts or super nice special editions (such as the anticipated upcoming Wizard Of Oz 3 disc set) of must have films for ANY collection. But when it comes to a double dip like this, I pass. Spiderman 2.5, X-Men 2.5, meh.
But what can you do? There's a release window given to most DVD titles so there's just not a good enough chance to finish all the special features the first time around. DVD's are pretty notorious for being out between 4-6 months after the theatrical releases, and companies don't want to mess with that.
But hey, there are a lot of X-Men enthusiasts out there who I'm sure would be more than happy to double dip on this.
I'd double dip for an 1080p version of this movie with a DTS-HD soundtrack. I could care less if they include the making of, story boards, interview with the director, cast, key grip or anything else. I just want the best picture quality, sound quality and it would be best if they included the theatre and full/unedited/director's cut.
Current disk is fine and I hardly watch the extra's.
Same here. No double-dipping for me.
All big Hollywood directors are hypocrites. I bet you [James Cameron] makes Terminator III this year. Like that's not going to have a ton of violence and nudity. I can see it all now. The Terminator running around shooting flowers at elves riding unicorns. How lovely.
