2D definitely looks classier, but using the poster art is much lazier than attempting something different.

I hope so. I think those are a really cool way to get behind the scenes info.

Re: Man Of Steel

The artwork is really really bad!!

I thought the artwork for the Amazon preorder was the artwork and I would have preferred that over what they chose.

Re: Man Of Steel

Looks like Wal Mart will be getting a steelbook. Doesn't look like it's going to include the 3D version though.

Re: Man Of Steel

Why do they need Superman flying in the middle of the S for the Blu-ray combo?

Comic book writers have been pulling that shit off for years. It'd take a special kind of hack screenwriter to fuck that up. Are Diablo Cody or Skip Woods doing anything at the moment?

Re: Man Of Steel

The DVD and steelbook covers are a lot better.

Wonder what Target will offer.

If you pre-order the Steelbook at Wal-Mart will you get credit like you do at Amazon when the sale price drops during the release day?

The movie was too long as it is . In all seriousness, I did definitely feel like there were many interesting and unexplored ideas in the movie, I'm disappointed that it doesn't sound like there are at least deleted scenes or something.

Was thinking the same.

Does the BR release of Superman: The Movie include both cuts and the mono track that got left off of the anthology DVD boxed set?

I don't know if I can think of an imagine in the film that would be interesting enough to make a good cover, to be honest.

It's been a chronic problem in the comics for years, even the DCAU got flak for it, you have to write Batman as ridiculously smart to make him work with the rest of the DCU who have superpowers.

There's a rarity now a days, a DVD version that will retain most of the special features as the blu ray version (it prob won't have the Maximum movie mode) but there is a disc 2

Re: Man Of Steel

I may have to get the digibook. But it'll probably be at Target.com. I expect all the stores here to cram them in the security cases or spider wrap.

I wouldn't hold out hope for a Maximum Movie Mode.

Odd, given that the director had done one for Watchmen, I believe.

And Sucker Punch.

But I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't a MMM. Warner's releases of late have been lacking in the features department.

It seems to be the fist casualty in the death of physical media, it looks like it's starting to happen with various distributors.
