It looks as though some info on the eventual DVD release of the new man of steel movie known as Superman Returns has appeared on the world wide web. That’s right, DVD info before the movie even hits theatres.Kryptonite couldn’t stop Bryan Singer from dropping us a tease. Fly inside for all the details… While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter director Bryan Singer sang some notes to as what will like be on the DVD release of Superman Returns. The DVD will of course be released by Warner Home Video, my guess is, just in time for the Christmas holiday.Here’s the words directly from The Hollywood Reporter.
Did he do anything special during production to generate material for Warner Home Video to use when “Superman” ultimately is released in DVD? “We’ve done a few things,” Singer replied. “We’ve done these really wonderful web logs, which have allowed fans to get on the Internet. They’re on SupermanReturns. com and BlueTights.net, which have enabled fans to sort of have an eye into the production. They’re kind of whimsical and fun and some of that documented material will be on the DVD. There’s something I like about making-of experiences that are little movies in themselves. I think there’s a kind of theater that happens during the making of a film that if it’s portrayed correctly can be really interesting — like ‘Hearts of Darkness,’ the making of ‘Apocalypse Now.’ It’s sort of a scary version of that. So there will be a lot of that (making-of) material.”I think we’re going to something called ‘The In-Movie Experience’ where you’ll be able to be watching the movie and then instantly go to making-of footage. It’s sort of the next evolution in running commentaries. Instead of just hearing the filmmakers or the actors talk over the scenes you’ll be able to leap in and experience the making of the scenes and experience what we call ‘B Roll.’ You’ll be able to leap to it right in the middle of watching the movie. My hope is that people experience the movie first and then go back and do this not do (it first). I don’t know about the first release of the DVD, but there’s a sequence I cut from the movie, a pretty significant sequence, and that sequence will appear at some point on (a DVD edition of the movie). It’s kind of a fun look into Superman’s journey off the Earth (into space that) I didn’t use it in the movie. It might be on the DVD. I haven’t decided yet.”
Superman Returns will be in theatres June 28th.
