The release date does make sense. That's the same date that Disney is putting out the next two volumes for Avengers: EMH.
Its also possible that they could release it on November 1st since Shout! Factory is releasing the 70s Cap films then.
Either way, the features seem decent enough. Too bad the DVD release will probably only have the commentary. :/
EDIT: Oh wow, US cover art already?
Scroll down to see the three potential covers. Awesome choice for the DVD and Blu-Ray combo releases.
