In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Warner Bros. Man of Steel, a re-imagining of the Superman legend, is out on DVD and Blu-ray.
See the Man of Steel Blu-ray Review published by Jeffrey Kauffman on November 6, 2013 where the release scored 4.0 out of 5.
Audio on the Blu-Ray is in 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio and is, in a word, loud. This is one of those sound tracks you can feel, with explosions, flying airplanes and spacecraft, and falling buildings. Shot on 35mm film in a 2.35 ratio, Man of Steel looks as it’s projected on Blu-Ray.
One of the features on the Blu-ray is the gorgeous 75th anniversary animation showing the history of Superman. “Man of Steel”, the prequel of the legendary Superman shows the incarnation of Superman, with Henry Cavill stepping into the lead alongside co-stars Amy Adams, Michael Shannon and Kevin Costner.
The first Blu-Ray disc includes behind-the-scenes pieces “Strong Characters, Legendary Roles” with insight from the main actors, “All-Out Action” which details stunts and special effects, “Krypton Decoded” which explains the design of the scenes on Krypton. It’s incredibly detailed and shows how Kryptonians culturally destroyed themselves long before the planet blew up.
In the package, there’s also an animated short, which includes iteration of Superman, from his first comic-book appearance to his “Man of Steel” style.
“Man of Steel” available in a two-disc DVD set ($28.98), Blu-ray/DVD / digital combo ($35.99), 3-D Blu-ray / standard Blu-ray / DVD/digital set ($44.99) and a couple of special packages for about $60 each.
