Zack Snyder's Man of Steel soaring to Blu-ray/DVD this November!

Aug. 19, 2013by: Paul Shirey

I still have to see THE WORLD'S END this week, but so far my favorite summer movie was MAN OF STEEL. I fall on the side of the folks who don't get too wrapped up in the "destruction porn" complaints and enjoyed the hell out of the film. It was absolutely the Superman movie I always wanted to see. Now, with a Superman/Batman movie on the horizon with the same team as MAN OF STEEL, I'm even more excited to see the universe continue. For those that are dying to see MAN OF STEEL from the comfort of their living room, your wait isn't that far off, as the film is now slated for a November release with all the trimmings. Below you'll find all the details, art, and official press release to whet your appetite for when MAN OF STEEL soars onto store shelves.

LOVED IT!!

Loved Man of Steel and I'm just putting it out there again so that all this crappy negativity that built up around all the 'official' reviews gets squashed, slowly but surely. I especially couldn't stand reviewers that said 'a brooding Superman' is too depressing.....I never saw Superman as being 'Brooding' in any way during the film. I saw a guy trying to find himself in a world that he wasn't from and by the time he became Superman, fully....he was the perfect happy go lucky Superman we all

I especially couldn't stand reviewers that said 'a brooding Superman' is too depressing.....I never saw Superman as being 'Brooding' in any way during the film. I saw a guy trying to find himself in a world that he wasn't from and by the time he became Superman, fully....he was the perfect happy go lucky Superman we all know and love...its just funny that they say that when that transition was one of the best things about the movie. I especially like it when he 'officially' speaks to the General and other officials, he sounded just like Christopher Reeve!! but with his own twist but I know fans of the original Superman movies caught onto that, and his movements were reminiscent of him as well. All those things just helped me to fall in love with this character again. That is all we, as an audience, needed from the original movies, so take note Singer cuz that is what you should have wanted from the movie you tried to make....sorry but its true, just a touch of Christopher Reeve to capture our hearts because the rest was there after only watching a little bit of the movie. I just think, like many others here, that the movie was over analyzed and when I left the theater that night I was seriously WOWED like many others.....if you weren't then your not a fan of Superman.....your just not. Yes, there were so many more things they could have added but there is so much more in store for Supes.....like where was the other person from the empty cryogenic chamber on the ship that Kal found, the one that became the Fortress of Solitude I mean?? Was that Kara?? I think so and the Wal-Mart comic book that was officially authorized by the movie and Nolan says it was Kara who visited earth so many many many years ago, perhaps thousands or hundreds I don't remember. So whether or not that will be part of the lore remains to be seen but they clearly left that out for some reason or another....otherwise they wouldn't have shown the empty chamber at all.

I like Ultraviolet!

I use it through vudu and it works great for me. Especially when travelling - I don't have to bring along anything to watch my films.

And the packaging is cool - but my money is on the Walmart Steelbook Exclusive!

I've always hated Superman. What a lame super hero. He's to perfect, and very outdated. Which is why this movie is awesome. Put a real spin on it. Sorry folks, but in the event some alien race wants to kill everyone on Earth, a few random people might die. Hell a whole city or two might be leveled. The way I see it all the survivors got off easy. I love everyone complaining how they wanted Superman to punch something, then when he has the best fight ever put on screen, people whine. And stop

I will happily not be watching this movie again.

Too many plot holes (why was his suit waiting for him on a 2,000 year old ship? Why did Zod take Lois onto his ship for no reason?)

Too often did it ignore the heroic character of Superman (why did Superman drag Zod from the middle of an empty field, crashing down a silo and killing everyone that worked there, then throwing him through a petrol station which exploded killing any one that worked there, or was shopping in there and anyone in

Too often did it ignore the heroic character of Superman (why did Superman drag Zod from the middle of an empty field, crashing down a silo and killing everyone that worked there, then throwing him through a petrol station which exploded killing any one that worked there, or was shopping in there and anyone in the surrounding area? Why did Superman just stand there giving Lois his smouldering lovers eyes when the city of Metropolis was utterly demolished around them and people were bound to be stuck crying out in pain in the smashed buildings that surrounded him? Why write an ending where Superman just snaps a guys neck saving one family when he hasn't even attempted to save anyone else in Metropolis or Smallville at this point?)

Too often did it utterly ruin the character of Pa Kent (Telling his son to hide his powers, to fit in, to not be special or unique, to let a bus full of children die, and then to die himself in the most ridiculous un-emotional and over-the-top way possible, to prove a message that makes no sense and possibly causing a lifetime of resentment between his mother and Clark because she KNOWS he could have saved Pa. Not only that but the message of the movie seemed to be that biological fathers are always right and moral, and that adoptive ones are selfish whiny assholes)

Too often I couldn't make out what the fuck was going on in that last battle scene, it was almost Transformers like in its haphazard shaky cam and fast-edits.

Nobody in the movie had an actual normal conversation like normal people. Everyone spoke in long drawn out po-faced overly epic "meaningful" speeches. Also there was no humour.....at all....none.
And to top it off we got a whiny and emotionally "dark" Superman with little to no personality at all. Don't get me wrong, Cavill looked great in the part, but I don't remember one line of his dialogue, or one moment of wit, or hopefulness, or levity. Just constant staring at things, and a lot of shouting. Almost a Batman level of shouting and rage, which considering that Supes is supposed to be the thematic opposite to Batman, just feeds back into the character assassination I was talking about earlier.

That was a hay stack silo, the only thing he killed there were the rats.

I can't speak for the plot hole you mentioned regarding his suit waiting for him on the ship under the ice, but I take issue with your view of the film's treatment of Jonathan Kent.

I thought it was refreshing and realistic. It added drama and weight to his character, and to Clark's relationship with Martha. Yes, it's a different approach and his death is frustrating because Clark could have easily saved him, but that's the point (and where the core of the character is in fact the same as

Yes, it's a different approach and his death is frustrating because Clark could have easily saved him, but that's the point (and where the core of the character is in fact the same as all other source material) Jonathan loves his son so much that he would rather die than risk the world possibly finding out that he was different.

I agree that the manner of his death was over-the-top, but the message of his death and Clark ultimately realising that his father was wrong is incredibly important in adding depth to a character that, let's face it, is pretty much as on the surface as it gets.

That's just my perspective though, you aren't the only one who had major issues with the film.

I make no apologies for loving this film, saw it twice, will happily buy it in November.

People complained about Superman Returns having little to no action, and failing to display the full extent of Superman's abilities. Man of Steel comes along and has copious amounts of action involving an entire city almost being demolished, and people complain.

I look forward to the complaining after the next film, where we finally get to see what we've all dreamed about.

'theatrical version' ?

WHY this insistence on a theatrical version ? Did I miss something ? Or does it just smell like double dipping ?

I've never been a big fan of packaging that doesn't fit with discs on the shelf but that's just me. I think it looks cool tho. And personally I'm digging the box art. F*** 3D anyway I don't care how the letters look. As long as I can see all of that destruction in stunning HD I'm sold:)

I use UltraViolet via Flixster and Vudu. UltraViolet on it's own isn't very good but you can download your films to your PC via their software. Yet, when I do DL films, I use Flixster and I use Vudu when I watch films on my tv's.

Kind of disappointed by the art and the price. Out of all films this year, I'll be getting three: Star Trek Into Darkness, Elysium, and most of all Man of Steel. That's my top pick. I've been waiting for the release date and it's weird that's finally arrived and I'm a bit disappointed. The art sucks. I was grateful that the pics on amazon and so forth, the "official" 3D art with toys or whatever, used the theatrical poster, what was awesome, but based on this it seems they're officially going

The big box set seems cool but I won't be getting it as it seems more appropriate for a trilogy set than one film. The prices are too high for all mediums. I hope I'm wrong in the long run but in short term this is an epic fail so far.

I liked the movie, but found it somewhat disappointing after seeing such awesome trailers. I'll pick up the blu-ray with hopes that I like it better a second time around.

Finally!

Excited to buy this, as I've only seen it once in theaters. Most movies take me multiple viewings to fully appreciate them (and vice versa) and Man of Steel left me with mixed feelings. It's turned out to be a pretty divisive film, and I'm hoping more viewings will clarify it for me, one way or the other. I have a sneaking suspicion it's not as good as I thought it was at first. Messy characters, convoluted plot, and a sort of identity crisis over the type of movie they wanted to make probably

Man of Steel was/is one of my favorite films of the year and it was an absolute blast seeing it in IMAX. And it has easily become one of my favorite superhero films of all time after multiple viewings.

This is a day one blu ray purchase for me. Hopefully it comes in a cool Steelbook.
