Fans of Man of Steel were excited yesterday to learn about the extra content that would be on the Blu Ray and DVD releases of the hit movie, but one successful internet blogger and confirmed Brony found more sinister implications in Warner Bros. seemingly innocent press release. Bleeding Cool's Brendon Connelly was shocked and disturbed to learn that the cheaper DVD version would contain less special features than the Blu Ray version, which is on a medium with five times the storage capacity.

Seriously? That's not super, man.

Here's the specs:

“Man of Steel” Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and 3D Limited Collector’s Edition contain the following special features:

  • Journey of Discovery: Creating “Man of Steel” – This immersive feature-length experience allows you to watch the movie with director Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Diane Lane and others as they share the incredible journey to re-imagine Superman.
  • Strong Characters, Legendary Roles – Explore the legendary characters of the Superman mythology and how they have evolved in this new iteration of the Superman story.
  • All-Out Action – Go inside the intense training regimen that sculpted Henry Cavill into the Man of Steel and Michael Shannon and Antje Traue into his Kyptonian nemeses. Includes interviews with cast and crew.
  • Krypton Decoded – Dylan Sprayberry (Clark Kent, age 13) gives the lowdown on all the amazing Krypton tech, weapons and spaceships featured in “Man of Steel.”
  • Planet Krypton – The world’s first exploration of Krypton and its lost society.

“Man of Steel” DVD 2-disc Special Edition contains the following special features:

  • Strong Characters, Legendary Roles
  • All-Out Action
  • Krypton Decoded

 

Connelly went on to tell readers that the Iron Man 3 Blu Ray and DVD sets would suffer from these same vast inequalities. Whoah! Iron Man 3 too? This is a full blown epidemic!

How long might this crisis have gone unnoticed if Mr. Connelly hadn't heroically brought it to all of our attention? One could imagine a dangerous, slippery slope where DVDs receive less and less focus, eventually leaving consumers no choice but to migrate to a newer technology which will render the old one obsolete! Of course, that's probably an extreme, far-fetched prediction with no historical precedent, but it could, potentially, happen, is what we're saying.

Luckily, thanks to the stalwart vigilance of brave men like Brendon Connelly, the Edward Snowden of bogus DVD bonus feature offerings, we have a chance to save this timeless home video format from a dismal fate.

Thank you, Brendon Connelly. Thank you.
