There are a bunch of good extras on that four-disc set beyond the new cut (including a commentary from Mangold) and you can read about those below. Read More »

Indeed, he’s so important to the series that this week’s rumor that he’d been offered $100 million to stick around for four more installments sounded entirely plausible. That’s not something you’d be able to say about most movie stars, no matter how lucrative their franchises.
