Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel was one of the more divisive films of the summer. Some appreciated its tone and new directions it took the Superman mythos to. Others scowled at the over-long nature of the film and a third act devolution into mindless fist fights and destruction that at best helped to make the film indistinguishable from other similar-minded summer fare and at worst completely betrayed a character and his fans.
Regardless, the film, which was produced by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight trilogy), enjoyed a fruitful run at the box office and is one of the top-grossing films of the year.
Today, Warner Bros. Home Video announced that Man of Steel will see its Blu-ray 3-D, Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital debut on November 12th. In addition to the standard releases and combos, Warner will also be releasing a Limited Collector’s Edition which features “a limited release metal “S” glyph with lucite glass stand.”
Check out some shots of all the sets and a full list of special features below, which includes interviews with director Snyder and Clark Kent/Kal-El thespian Henry Cavill.
