Turns out there is a commentary - it’s included with the iTunes version (which is included with the disc by way of the digital copy code since iTunes is a Movies Anywhere provider).

Ugh to the trend of commentaries not on the disc release.

Assuming that the commentary ISN'T on the disc and this isn't just an omission/goof...

Matt Reeves did commentary for his Planet of the Apes films so I was wondering why he wouldn't for The Batman too. It's good news that he did. I'll listen to that. But it's also annoying. A supplement of that significance should really be on the disc itself.

Let's wait until the disc arrives to be sure it's not on there.

It probably won't be, but like I said: this could've just been an error in the press release or a last-minute change of plans...

Got the 4K/BD package today and can confirm the commentary is nowhere on either disc.

I have no idea how to use the download code to access the movie on iTunes.

I entered on iTunes but it says "not valid" - is that because I already used it on "Movies Anywhere"?

If you redeemed the code on MA then you should be able to access the commentary on iTunes. Yes, once redeemed on MA, the code is invalid going forward.

Warner codes redeem on Movies Anywhere. iTunes is a Movies Anywhere partner. As long as your iTunes and MA accounts are linked, once you redeem the code on MA, it’ll show up in your iTunes library as well.

Alrighty - I have to figure out how to link iTunes and MA, I guess.

I literally never stream so I just signed up for MA tonight. I don't know how any of these works!

That's an excellent point. Did Colin linked his iTunes account to his MA account.

Some YouTube video makers got in the Best Buy steelbook already and have shown that it does have three discs after all: movie 4K + movie Blu-ray + special features disc. Despite the picture on the website which clearly shows only two discs.

That being said, the uncertainty around all of this made me cancel my pre-order for the steelbook. I'm not going to fuss with trying to get it back. I no longer want the hassle. I'll just go with the regular edition at this point and save money too.

But for those who want the steelbook, it looks like you will get everything.

I ended up doing that and it apparently worked.

I've been unable to put the movie on my phone, though. I got a new 13 Pro that I activated the day after I downloaded the movie, and iTunes on my desktop WILL NOT recognize it.

12-year-old laptop? Recognizes new phone.

New laptop? Recognizes new phone.

3.5 year old desktop? Nope.

Tried every trick in the book and spent time with Apple advisors twice - nuttin'.

The phone is also iffy with CarPlay in my Civic. Wondering if there's simply something wrong with the phone itself.
