I found this Superman: The Movie release on Walmart.com. I wonder if this has the DTS-HD track. I was under the impression that the box set is still the only way to get that version.

That's the theatrical version. Did they ever do a DTS-HD track for that?

But Man of Steel doesn't belong in the Anthology Set and belongs in the DC Film Universe whatever-they-wanna-call-it. Since it's not the same series. Supergirl of course belongs, all official cuts.
It'd be as though someone made a boxset of the Batman 1989-1997 series and also had The Dark Knight Trilogy as part of it. Should be separate.

Uh, Returns is a pseudo-sequel to Superman II and is NOT a part of the new DC "universe" thing, which started with Man of Steel. Superman Returns definitely belongs in this set.

I don't see where he said Returns did not belong.

But yes, Returns belongs.

It's difficult to define which films belong. If you say just the Salkind produced ones then that includes Supergirl but omits 4. If you say only the ones starring Christopher Reeve as Superman then we lose Supergirl and gain IV back, but then you could argue the first film doesn't count because it features Reeve rather than stars him.

Personally I'd prefer it if Returns wasn't included in the set, but at least I can use it as a coaster while I'm watching the Reeve films.

My thought was it was a movie that had Superman in it, ha ha. I mean Superman vs The Mole Men is in there too, and that's no connection to anything.

Anthology doesn't necessarily equate to a series. If we're just talking about the Superman character, then everything nvolving Supes could be thrown in there in the interest of studying the evolution of the character in cinema. Same with Batman. WB's current anthology releases of Batman/Superman seem to keep continuities separat, but a Batman anthology somewhere down the road could include everything from Adam West to Batfleck.

There's an American standalone BD of the theatrical cut of Superman? I had no idea. That's really all I've wanted on BD.

I don't know why people love Superman but don't like Superman II as much. Personally I think II has more super hero action than the first. I always thought people say the first is much better than it is similar to how people say Returns is much worse than it is.

For instance in Superman, couple of things I can't comprehend, how would Luthor have known that this green rock would weaken Superman? That made no sense. And when he reversed time to save Lois Lane that made even less sense. Even if he turned back time why didn't her car fall into the ground like it did the first time (except this time he would rescue her before that happened). But in the "new" timeline it's like it didn't happen. It's like, HUH? he reversed time AND changed history?

I don't know how I read Returns in his post, but I did. Maybe he did a quick edit. Yeah, that's it!

I love both Superman I & II, but there are indeed a lot of things in both that don't make sense logically. Those movies are so revered that we often forget that they were largely inspired by Silver Age comics, and "taking it seriously" meant something a little different at the time.

I like I & II about the same, but II's seams are a little easier to see nowadays. II has a better plot, but the first one just seems a little more timeless, because of the way it was executed. It has a more genuinely epic feel to it.

I dunno; does any of that make sense?

I definitely ignore a lot of stupid crap when watching Superman 1 and 2. I feel like I always did though, I always thought stuff like turning back time and throwing his chest logo at people were dumb. It's just that the movies are otherwise so perfectly executed you look past it and love them anyway.

In my experience when people pick movies apart for stuff like that they didn't love the movie to begin with. If you otherwise love a movie then you forgive its issues.

I believe Superman II theatrical and Superman III DVDs had original 2.0 tracks that were not carried over to blu ray.
