The Science of Superman documentary included in the set was a Circuit City-exclusive with the release of Superman Returns, so this is its first wide release and also its first in HD. The Look, Up in the Sky! The Amazing Story of Superman is also seeing its first HD release here. Not only are those two in HD, but we've also learned that the never-before-seen Return to Krypton alternate opening scene from Superman Returns will be included in full HD in this set. That's a very cool and appreciated touch. Also, a number of you have asked about the audio for the Superman: The Movie BDs. The 1978 Theatrical Cut Blu-ray will have BOTH the 2000 mix in English 5.1 DTS-HD MA and also the original theatrical audio in English 2.0 DTS-HD MA. Naturally, the 2000 Expanded Edition Blu-ray will include the 2000 remixed audio in English 5.1 DTS-HD MA.---
Updated 3/31: The complete specs for Superman: The Motion Picture Anthology set has been released. It appears that the "Return to Krypton" scenes may be included with SUPERMAN RETURNS! Release date: June 7, 2011. MSRP $129.95.

Updated 3/30: CBM has a trailer for the Superman Anthology on Blu-Ray that features all 4 Reeve films and SUPERMAN RETURNS in an 8-disc set! This is set to be released this summer.
We've read the rumors, now it's official (for Europe at the moment). The entire Reeve/Routh Superman films will be released on Blu-Ray this Summer! Several years ago, this set (aka 'Kryptin') was released on regular DVD.
A definitive Superman collection. In Richard Donner's original blockbuster, the Superman myth is well told, from his birth on the doomed planet Krypton to his childhood in a small Kansas town and beyond. After he comes of age, young Clark Kent, as his Earth parents have named him, learns the truth of his alien birth on a voyage of discovery to the Arctic. It is there that he learns through a link to his long-dead birth parents of his superhuman abilities and his responsibility to preserve and protect truth, justice and the American Way. Once he adjusts to life in the big city, Metropolis, he discovers that hiding his superpowers as mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent isn't easy as he flirts with hard-nosed Lois Lane and battles supervillain Lex Luthor. Also includes Superman II, III and IV - The Quest For Peace and Superman’s latest adventure in Superman Returns, as Brandon Routh takes over the role immortalised by Christopher Reeve.Hopefully a release date will be announced for other countries soon.
