One of the biggest movies of the year, Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, is now available to take home on Blu-ray. If you only saw the picture once, or even twice in the theaters, there’s likely quite a bit you missed. Luckily, the Blu-ray is packed full of behind-the-scenes featurettes and a multimedia commentary track that delves into every facet of the filmmaking process. And for those of you who want to minor in Kryptonian studies, the special features also explore the newly created language and alphabet, technology, and all-around culture of the inhabitants of Krypton, plus an in-depth look at the alien world itself.
Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Antje Traue and Russell Crowe, Man of Steel is an enjoyable, yet absolutely detailed and expansive entry in the pantheon of Superman films. The quality of the film alone is worth picking it up on Blu-ray, but the special features put the icing on the cake.
