Warner has announced the release date of Man of Steel, this summer’s Superman movie, on home video as November 12.
You have your options for purchase: Blu-ray 3-D combo pack (list price $44.95), Blu-ray combo pack ($35.99), two-disc DVD special edition ($28.98), a Limited Collector’s Edition ($59.99), or (if you just want to see the movie), digital download (in either HD or standard definition) from such vendors as iTunes, Xbox, PlayStation, Amazon, and Vudu. All of the physical disc versions also come with an UltraViolet copy.
Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill as Superman and was directed by Zack Snyder (Watchmen, Sucker Punch). I’m curious to see the movie, although I already know I disagree with the ending, and the special features should put it in new context for me. My interest stems from the impressive casting — the Kents are played by Diane Lane and Kevin Costner, while Amy Adams is Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne Perry White, and Russell Crowe Jor-El. All are Oscar nominees or winners.
Here’s the extras list. For the Blu-ray packs and Collector’s Edition:
- Journey of Discovery: Creating “Man of Steel” — This immersive feature-length experience allows you to watch the movie with director Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, and others as they share the incredible journey to re-imagine Superman.
