In April, they moved it up a week to July 21 and released a trailer.

Now comes word that the date is back to July 28, but the suggested retail prices have decreased. The two-disc DVD special edition (cover shown here) will be $24.98 with Blu-ray available at $29.99. The single-disc DVD stays at $19.98.

Over 3 hours of bonus features are promised, including a trailer for the next project, Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, an interview with Geoff Johns about the character of Green Lantern, and the Duck Dodgers episode “The Green Loontern” (wouldn’t “Lantoon” have been better?). Find out more at the official site.

Also of note: WB says that “over 2 million DC Universe DVDs [have been] sold”. They go on to break down ship quantities:

As usual, the girl is last — but it’s also the newest title, so it’s had the least time on the shelves, and it’s received mixed reviews. It shouldn’t be surprising that Batman, with his superior media penetration, has done the best.
