I own this blu ray. Live in Portugal. So disapointed with the lack of extras. Just a few docs and a Hobbit one promoting New Zealand? Pure crap. No costume feature, no Superman mythology, no juicy details. I remember Batman Begins special features and that was amazing. They really put everything in that dvd. Details about their interpretation of the character, so many behind the scenes, interviews, technical details about everything. I don't have the ultraviolet feature. But as a fan of the film, I was really disapointed. 40 minutes worth of extras is not enough for something like a superhero film like superman.

Yep, the europeans pretty much got effed over... again.
No 'Maximum Movie Mode' (a.k.a. 'Journey of Discovery: Creating Man of Steel') and apparently a special feature called 'Planet Krypton' (not to be confused with the kinda lame 'Krypton Decoded' feature) that is exclusive to the US editions as well.
Seems inevitable to import the 3-Disc Blu-Ray+DVD+UltraViolet Combo Pack if you want the complete package.

I'm going with the Target Exclusive.

As J. Howlett said...

Disc 1-Feature film with supplement material, Strong Characters, Legendary Roles, All-Out Action, Krypton Decoded, and the 75 Anniversary Animated Short film.

Disc 2-Feature film with Journey of Discovery-Creating Man of Steel Maximum Movie Mode integrated with the film (meaning you can't turn off the Maximum Movie Mode feature) and Planet Krypton featurette.

Disc 3-DVD copy of the Feature film.


TARGET EXCLUSIVE:

Includes all the above and below

X-Ray Vision –30 minute in-depth look at the signature scenes from Man of Steel
• Destruction of Krypton
• Clark Discovers The Fortress of Solitude
• Battle on the streets of Smallville
• Jor-El Saves Lois & Superman
• Attack on Metropolis


BD Book – Man of Steel: Inside the Legendary World of Superman
• Offers an intimate look at the reinvention of the world’s most iconic superhero through the eyes of acclaimed director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) and producer Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy). This unique companion book offers a rich selection of materials, from concept art and behind-the-scenes set photography to director commentary and interviews with key creative's, unlocking the secrets behind giving new life to an immortal hero.


This seems like the ultimate choice as far as disc and feature content. Sure the other ones may have different covers and the obvious 3D version but aside from that and collector items(steelbook, figurines) this is the best for my money.

The Target edition seems like a good one to go with, but don't forget the WalMart edition comes with some exclusive material, too (thru Vudu, unfortunately, and there's still no information on what those exclusives are).

Wha? Where'd you read that? Are you talking about that "Steel book" edition, or just... Man Of Steel on Blu-Ray from WalMart in general?

yeah, this featurette isnt all that special... it just goes into the 3D aspects of how those scenes were created. it also feels like it was made for like Cartoon network or something, because it feels very teenage-ish

i liked the movie, but the special features for this film is atrocious
So you've seen it? If that's the case, i will probably go a different route.

I stand by my earlier post. If Super Kal did mix up the Krypton Decoded and X-Ray Vision feature then I'm happy. I live 45 minutes away from Target. With work and kids it will be hard to get there in a timely fashion throughout the week. And when you factor in gas, I ordered it through the mail and should get it by the weekend. If the feature wasn't that good then I would just run into Walmart and pick it up on the 12th. But in all honesty, it's not like I would really get to watch it until the weekend anyway...even then I might get lucky. I'm not overly impressed with the cover but, what are you gonna do. In todays marketing it's a shame they can't do some more unique covers. It seems all they want to do is promote the star(s) of the movie.

Any reviews of the Maximum mode so far? That will by far be the meatiest feature and contain the most extensive behind the scenes information.

I think this is undoubtedly from the Planet Krypton feature from the Blu Ray and looks to be the best special feature yet. We can only hope that it is long, like 20-25 minutes. Anything shorter than that would be just surface level.

^That sucks. Why the hell are there 85 different editions of this thing?! I'm picking up mine tomorrow, I'm going to have to write a list on my phone of all the things it's supposed to have... If I can't find one (I think some features are, stupidly, US exclusives) I'm ordering from Amazon and waiting it out.

EDIT: Hah, I'm in Adelaide, too.

I don't get the whole "american exclusive" bs. Are we less deserving?. It's the only feature I haven't seen yet. 50 bucks down the drain. I also don't understand how you can have a movie without commentary or a feature of henrys screentest. The mos bluray is just lazy. Say what you will about superman returns but atleast the special features are mindblowing and extensive. This movie deserved better

I wish I could find a list of all available blurays in the USA and the features included....I hate when they do store exclusives because I want to see all the behind the scenes and special features and I think it's ridiculous to buy multiple copies of the same movie

Titan, the version I got was the limited edition S shaped tin. it's 3 disc, comes with a display stand for the tin. I got it from jbhifi as it was a jbhifi exclusive. Cant get it anywhere else in australia apparently. And amazingly on the bluray disc itself, the only features the disc has is a behind the scenes feature of THE F'ING HOBBIT!!!!. WHAT!!???. So instead of maximum movie mode, i got a featurette for a movie I could care less about. . Well done australia
