X-Men 2.5: When?

Supposedly a confirmed title, and I'd have thought it would be released before X-Men 3 gets to the theaters.

I imagine Bryan Singer's a bit pressed for time at the moment. It made more sense when he was working on X-men 2, because he was still in with the company. Now Warner has him for a while.

If ever. X2 got a pretty good 2-disc special edition w/ DTS.

Blah...hopefully they gave up on this idea. X2 is a great set already. Besides, maybe with Bryan Singer's departure, they gave up on this release.

(I know I don't have to buy any potential X-Men 2.5 release, but it irritates me to have a re-release of a perfectly acceptable set when so many Fox titles...Big, Broadcast News, True Lies, Broken Arrow, Raising Arizona, Mrs. Doubtfire, The Abyss, Home Alone [to name a few]...are without even anamorphic transfers.)

X-men needed a double-dip, X-Men 2 on the other hand doesn't... i doubt this be ever come out... or atleast I doubt a 2.5 will ever come out.

I would hope X-men 2.5 is 1080p BR with DTS-HD.

I thought it would be right around now, but perhaps they are sitting on it for HD?

Maybe they realized that "X-Men 1.5" makes absolutely no sense. If they extended the end of the movie or something, ok, I could understand that. But calling a special edition with the exact same cut of the movie "1.5" is worse than "Buttercups Edition" or "Don't Call Me Shirley Edition." As said before, anybody who is either itching to upgrade or holding off for a release better than the current version that's packed with commentaries, deleted scenes and interviews needs to seriously re-evaluate their buying habits. Buy the current disc of the second move.

Instead of when, I ask why?
