While "The Wolverine" was just a modest success at the box office here in the States, the film pulled in an impressive $372M worldwide and, must like Logan's healing factor, repaired a lot of the damage inflicted upon the character by "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." With everyone's favorite Canadian mutant back in fighting shape, the well-received film properly prepped Wolverine for his starring role in next year's "X-Men: Days of Future Past."
Now fans can check out the action they may have missed on Blu-ray and DVD when "The Wolverine" is released on December 3rd. A ton of special features play the Yukio to the Blu-ray's Wolverine, but fans will have to choose their release wisely. While both the Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray will include an alternate ending, a set tour of "X-Men: Days of Future Past," trailers, a featurette called "The Path of the Ronin," and a partner app for a second screen experience, only the 3D Blu-ray will included the "Unleashed Extended Edition" and director James Magnold's commentary.

To say that "Man of Steel" did pretty well at the box office would be an understatement; the movie was huge and proved that DC can have success with a character who is not Batman. Now fans will be able to relive their favorite moments from "Man of Steel" (Jor-El's thrilling Krypton chase? Lois Lane blasting away Kryptonians? Everything with Faora?) in the comfort of their own home when "Man of Steel" hits stores on November 12th.
The film will be released in a few different ways, including a Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, a Blu-ray Combo Pack, a DVD 2-disc Special Edition, and as a 3D Limited Collector's Edition. For those of you trying hard to decide which one to buy, full disclosure time: the 3D Limited Collector's Edition does come with a limited release metal "S" glyph with lucite glass stand. Pictures and information about the special features can be found after the jump.

With the "Dark Knight" trilogy now complete, diehard Batman fans have been left wondering what the future holds for their beloved bat-themed superhero. But before we look too far forward, let us first reflect back on the end of an era.
Earlier this week, "The Dark Knight Rises" was released on Blu-ray and DVD with enough special features to fill an entire Batcave. Whether you've already seen the film in theaters or have yet to watch it, "The Dark Knight Rises" home video release is certainly worth its price. Read on for five reasons why you should pick up "The Dark Knight Rises" on Blu-ray and/or DVD.
For those of you who’d like to get an early jump on your holiday shopping and are looking for the perfect gift for the comic book movie fan in your life, look no further than the recently released “Watchmen Collector’s Edition" Blu-ray. In addition to its extra-neat packaging and lenticular cover, this new collection includes "Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut," which is Zack Snyder's director's cut with "Tales of the Black Freighter" interspersed, basically all of Alan Moore's groundbreaking work in a three-and-a-half-hour feature film.
Yes, we know that "Watchmen" has already arrived on DVD and Blu-ray before. So what makes this release so special? We'll let Snyder tell you himself.
"I love the movie. Whenever they want to do another version of 'Watchmen' I'm like, 'Yes, please,'" he told MTV News. "It's one of those movies when we talk about it, the more and more that superhero movies exist within our popular culture and the way they exist, the more we rely on that mythology and the more relevant that movie is."
Hulk might not make it into "Iron Man 3," but that doesn't mean Bruce Banner won't get to spend some alone time with Tony Stark in the near future.
Entertainment Weekly has the details on "Iron Man & Hulk: Heroes United," an animated movie hitting home video on April 23, 2013, just a couple of weeks before "Iron Man 3" soars into theaters.
Adrian Pasdar of "Heroes" fame will voice Stark, Fred Tatasciore will voice Banner, and both will follow the leads set forth by Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo in "Marvel's The Avengers," according to Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb.
The "Dark Knight Rises" arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on December 4, but it's not just when you're getting the release that matters — it's also how, if you want to get your hands on certain bonus features.
Superhero Hype has a helpful rundown of Target and Best Buy's exclusive editions of the "Dark Knight Rises" home video release, including special features that are unique to each version. Target's offering comes equipped with a book (no word on what it contains) with your choice of Batman or Bane covers. The Best Buy edition, however, has an even more intriguing exclusive: a documentary.
"The Dark Knight Rises" has an official home video release date: December 4. But when Christopher Nolan's third and final Batman movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD just in time for the holiday season, there will be one set of features sadly absent from the release: deleted scenes.
Despite rumors to the contrary, there are no deleted scenes coming with the "Dark Knight Rises" DVD and Blu-ray, which means no, you won't get to see Talia al Ghul's real death scene, and you won't see Bruce Wayne's epic swim to Italy.
Read on for five deleted scenes we wish had made the "Dark Knight" DVD cut.

Frank Miller's masterpiece, "The Dark Knight Returns," has been a huge inspiration for a number of Batman stories and films throughout the years. It's no wonder that DC Comics and Warner Home Video have finally decided to turn this critically-acclaimed graphic novel into not one, but two epic animated feature films. The second half doesn't hit until next year, but "Part One" hits shelves today (September 25), and it gets our wholehearted endorsement.
"The Dark Knight Returns" takes place in a Gotham we've never seen before; crime runs rampant throughout the city as the Batman remains on the side-lines, old and retired. But when a gang of "Mutants" threaten to take over the city, Bruce Wayne is finally compelled to take action and end their reign of terror once and for all. Read on for our list of five reason to watch "The Dark Knight Returns, Part 1."
