'The Dark Knight'In a move that absolutely no one saw coming (and that line is dripping with sarcasm, folks), it looks as though "The Dark Knight" will continue its rep as a financial force to be reckoned with, as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group has officially announced that sales of "The Dark Knight" on DVD and Blu-ray are already breaking records -- and it's only been a week since the movie hit store shelves!

According to the statement released by Warner Bros., Blu-ray sales alone have topped 1.7 million units, and total DVD and Blu-ray sales have hit 13.5 million units worldwide (including consumer and rental sales). Again, given that the film has been available for just over a week -- coupled with the fact that we're in the thick of holiday shopping season -- it's clear that we are witnessing "The Dark Knight" setting the bar in terms of DVD and Blu-ray sales, as it has already become the best selling DVD of 2008 (not to mention on iTunes).

'Super Friends'Allow me a moment to delve into a bit of vanity here -- I love 'Super Friends' and I'm not even close to ashamed to admit it. If you were to ask me why, I honestly couldn't tell you, but nothing brings a smile to my otherwise expressionless face faster than the words "'Super Friends' Marathon."

And now I get to have a 'Super Friends' marathon whenever I darn well please, thanks to Warner Home Video's upcoming box set collecting volume 2 of the first season of the show. Following the adventures of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and The Wonder Twins, Zan and Jayna, DC Comics' premiere super-squad faced off against a bevy of dangers and supervillains, and along the way, offered up safety tips and magic tricks to Saturday morning viewers. And there was a space monkey!

After the jump, check out the box art and special features. I will now return you to the actual comic book movie news you come to expect from Splash Page. Read More...

'Wonder Woman'While the likes of Superman and Batman have been dominating the blogosphere lately in terms of where their next big-budget movies currently stand, very little has been said (with the exception of your friends here at Splash, natch) about the third member of DC's super-powered trinity, Wonder Woman, and the status of her highly-anticipated foray into the world of multiplexes.

However, while we wait for Princess Diana's live-action debut to crawl out of Hollywood limbo, fans can at the very least look forward to her upcoming animated full-length DVD feature, "Wonder Woman," which is set to hit stores on March 3, 2009. Warner Premiere has released the specs on the forthcoming DVD, and if you're a fan of DC's premiere Amazon warrior, then you clearly will not be disappointed with what's in store for ya.

Captain America & HulkAfter director Louis Leterrier hinted that the Sentinel of Liberty, Captain America, would be making a cameo appearance in this summer's "Incredible Hulk," the internet has been a'buzzin' with fans calling shenanigans after the Star Spangled Avenger never materialized in the theatrical release.

However, with the release of the new "Incredible Hulk" DVD, those who were hoping to see Cap make his cinematic debut (yes, debut -- we're just gonna forget about the original 1990 film) can finally catch a glimpse -- and the key word being "glimpse" -- of Cap and his mighty shield thanks to the new highly-touted alternate opening scene which takes place in the Arctic Circle, where a despondent Bruce Banner goes to kill himself having failed to come up with a cure for his curse.
