Last week Walt Disney Home Entertainment announced back-to-back street dates for both the animated smash, Coco (Feb. 27), and the super-hero blockbuster, Thor: Ragnarok (Mar. 6). With this done, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment wasted absolutely no time in jumping into the fray on Mar. 13 with a four-SKU helping of their own super-hero hit, director Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
The ARR comes in at 116 days and domestic box office receipts currently stand at $227.5 million.
Planned for delivery to the home entertainment marketplace are a stand-alone DVD edition, a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, a double-disc Blu-ray selection featuring both 2D and 3D viewing options and a 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray combo pack. Lots of choices for Justice League fans!!!
In a post-Superman world, Lois Lane (Amy Adams) is in mourning and a smorgasbord of (DC) super heroes — Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Mamoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) — are pitted against the timeless Steppenwolf (voiced by Ciarán Hinds) and his legion of flying demons. Will they be enough to stop the destruction of our planet? Can hope be “resurrected” (is that a spoiler?) to overcome Steppenwolf and his hellish creatures? Join the fun on Mar. 13 and all will be revealed!
Bonus features common to all SKU configurations include a half-dozen featurettes — “Road to Justice,” “Heart of Justice,” “Technology of the Justice League,” “Justice League: The New Heroes,” “Steppenwolf the Conqueror” and “Suit Up: The Look of the League” — plus four specific “Scene Studies” (Revisiting the Amazons, Wonder Woman’s Rescue, Heroes Park and The Tunnel Battle).
Exclusive to the Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD product offerings are the featurette titled “The Return of Superman” and bonus scenes not shown theatrically.
