Still going with the Steelbook on this puppy. I was hoping for more bonus stuff about Ledger, but whatever.

He has stated that there weren't any deleted scenes. Apparently he if a very efficient director and never needs reshoots and doesn't really take extraneous footage.

I'm just disappointed that the regular cover appears to be the same as the SteelBook cover.

The Digital Bits states that a majority of the features are exclusive to Blu-Ray, including the trailers. I really hope that's not the case, or might just end up getting the 1-disc, eventhough this was my favorite movie of the year.

I would be shocked, shocked! to see WB using The Dark Knight as a push for Blu-Ray with exclusive content. Shocked.

As someone who's a completist, yet isn't able to afford a Blu-Ray player, that just pisses me off.

I still plan on getting the steelbook at FYE, but I'm not going to be 100% happy about it...

I wouldn't lose hope just yet MT, digital bits have been wrong in the past (they advertised deleted scenes on the new L.A. Confidential release yet there nowhere to be seen) and also, the DVD version of Dark Knight has not been properly announced just yet so don't lose hope just yet.

I'm a little upset about the lack of trailers and TV Spots on the DVD 2 disc if the information out so far is correct, but not too upset about some documentaries that in my mind amount to fluff that isn't really even related to the film.

I want the Jokerized trailer on there, too. Not to mention the oodles of TV spots and such. Man.

WOW! So, the Blu-ray gets shitty special features and the 2-disk DVD wont even have all of whats on the blu-ray release. I will NEVER forgive WB for this.

This is one of the biggest films of all time. They know most of the general public will double dip.

Does it say anything about the Making-of special on HBO being included? If it's not that's just laziness since they're all Time Warner as it is..

let's not forget Pixar did the same thing for standard DVD of Cars and Ratatouille - make nearly all the extras bluray exclusives.

I'd wait and see what is actually different/missing. It may be negligible. I don't think it's that fucked up though.

In the midst of all this negativity, I'll just say that I can't wait to get the Blu-ray and I'm very content with the announced features.

^ same.

As long as the Blu-ray has top notch picture and audio quality, I don't really care what special features it has.

Perhaps some of these features that as of now seem to be exclusive to the BR release will end up on a retailer-exclusive bonus 3rd disc?

So, I read on TheDigitalBits.com that the BD of The Dark Knight will be the IMAX version... "For the Blu-ray Disc however, while most of the film will also be presented in the 2.40:1 anamorphic widescreen ratio, the scenes that were specifically shot in IMAX format will be presented at 1.78:1, which will fill the frame and will thus recreate the IMAX experience at home. This is not via seamless branching (you can't turn it off)."
Why does this bother me? Because I zoom the 2.40:1 image from my projector to fill my 2.35:1 screen. The 1.78:1 image will be outside of my screen dimensions. This sucks for me and anybody else with this screen setup. I will probably have to settle for the SD version of this movie!

This should have been done by seamless branching....

There's deleted footage and alternate takes that have already been seen online for Batman Begins. TDK is the same thing. No director is going to be perfect, despite what they may tell you. Some shots or scenes just don't work in editing.

and specifically for IMAX shots, it's usually one take only (because of the expense and complexity)

There's clearly alternate takes and dialog deliveries, as just watching all the trailers you can hear various lines said differently.
