Hello All,

I was just curious if there was any word on when (or if) we will see the original version of Superman on Blu? The extended cut was released a few years back, but I'm sure I'm not alone in when I say that I prefer the original version.

We do need a better version on Superman on BD. Both cuts of the film with lossless audio and all the features of the DVD release. Unfortunately, there probably isn't much of a chance of this happening until the next Superman film is due out. Studios may still be reluctant at this point to start double dipping on BD as well.

A reissue of the previous dvd isn't interesting to me>> They left out about 40 minutes of deleted scenes that he could have/should have included. These were the scenes shown on television that, while they mostly suck, I still wanna see again!

How about the original soundtrack? The recent DVD release got it, so why not the BD? I really hate the remix.

While I do not hate it, I do have problems with it and much prefer the original. They could do a 2.0 ch PCM for the original and still have room for the remixed 5.1 using lossless. I think that would work.
