When Marvel made $200 million in three days with The Avengers, Hollywood’s view of superheroes changed forever. It was the culmination of four years of films called the “Marvel Cinematic Universe,” an ambitious gamble to link storylines over multiple films. DC quickly rebooted Superman in Man of Steel to mimic Marvel’s success, with Fox and Sony each following suit with their respective hero franchises. The DC Cinematic Universe has fans cautiously excited, but we won’t see the second installment until 2016′s Batman vs. Superman.
While comic fans patiently wait to see Superman tangle with Batman, Lex Luthor and Wonder Woman on the big screen, WB’s home video division is happy to fill the void. With this week’s digital and Blu-ray release of the DC Universe animated original movie Justice League: War, the DC Animated Universe will begin develop one full sense of continuity. Read More »

At times it can seem like there’s little point to actually buying Blu-ray discs. Sure, there’s the little matter of the superior sound and picture, but these days you can legally download the film (usually a few weeks before the disc release) and watch almost all the extras early as the company disperses them across the internet before discs are on shelves. Case in point, Thor: The Dark World.
The Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray doesn’t hit shelves until February 25 but we’ve already seen multiple videos from the release including Tom Hiddleston as an Avenger, auditioning for Thor and even some deleted scenes. Now, we have an extended clip from the gag reel, which is pretty cute as far as gag reels go. Check it out below. Read More »
UPDATE: Collider has taken back their story saying this information from the producers is incorrect.
Before Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street hit theaters, there was much talk about the film’s length. An early cut was said to be around four hours long but Paramount wanted it to be at least an hour shorter, which reportedly held up the release. From that, a aura of mystery surrounded this rumored extended cut even though Scorsese himself said the theatrical cut, which ran 179 minutes, was his director’s cut. (Scorsese’s theatrical cuts are always his director’s cuts.)
Most of the time, when a master like Scorsese says a cut is a director’s cut, that’s the end of the conversation. But two of his producers now suggest the epic four-hour version of the film will be on the Blu-ray later this Spring. Read More »
Minor spoilers for Thor: The Dark World follow.
By now, hopefully anyone who wanted to see Thor: The Dark World, has done so. The film had a super successful international box office run and the Blu-ray is coming out February 25. If you haven’t yet seen the movie you have lots to look forward to, including a hilarious highlight which was one of the last things shot in the movie.
That highlight is Loki being super-mischievous when talking to his brother Thor; we’ll explain more after the break, or you can simply watch an alternate version of the scene. Read More »
Briefly: Later this year, you can finally bring all the “BAM,” “POW” and “WOW’s” from your childhood to your disc player. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment finally announced it will be releasing The Batman ’66 Complete TV Series on home video later this year. It’s a long time coming, after a years-long rights tussle between Fox and Warners that prevented a complete box set from ever being issued. At this point we don’t know a release date, or what format we can expect. (It’s got to hit Blu, right?) But the announcement is good enough for now.
The wait between Marvel Cinematic Universe feature films can be excruciating. Thankfully, Marvel helps ease the pain with short films called One-Shots, which are canon within the larger story of the feature films. So far, most DVD/Blu-ray releases have had One-Shots such as Item 47 and Agent Carter. Last year’s Thor: The Dark World hits Blu-ray February 25, and will features a One-Shot called All Hail The King. Read More »
