Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice did not have the easiest theatrical run, but maybe it’ll fare better with its home release. Amazon has released the first official images of a new Ultimate Edition Blu-ray set that includes the film, a copy of Man of Steel, and a ton of bonus materials.
Batman v Superman earned a worldwide gross of a little more than $873 million, which isn’t a whole lot of money when you factor in the $250 million production budget and the reported $150-$160 million worldwide marketing budget. The film opened with record sales, but the numbers drastically dipped from week to week, showing there wasn’t a high return rate from audiences.
In that sense, it makes you wonder how many will end up buying this Ultimate Edition, which is attached with a $123.99 retail pre-sale price tag. It does include copies of Action Comics #1 and Detective Comics #27 (the first comic book appearances of Superman and Batman, respectively), but you know the studio will also release something down the road that includes everything from Man of Steel through Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman to Justice League. So, it makes sense to save up for something like that.
