2.35.1 WIDESCREEN SPECIAL EDITION BATMAN DVDS?
I would be interested if anyone out there has any information regarding the recent release of the long awaited Batman 2 Disc DVD sets without any 2.35.1 formats available. Will Warner offer these formats when a 'Directors Cut' of Batman Begins is released. CD-WOW and Amazon.com advertised some of their stock as 2.35.1 and even DVD Review magazine listed their review discs as 2.35.1 incorrectly!

Why on Earth would you want to watch the films in the wrong aspect ratio?

All of the '89-'97 Batman movies are 1.85:1 so there won't be any 2.35:1 release of the movies, and doing so would ruin them even worse than pan & scan transfers in this case. The descriptions you have read that state the films are in a 2.35:1 aspect ratio are incorrect.

Just like Matt said,
those site's are incorrect,
all of the previous Batman films were made in 1.85:1,
with Batman Begins being the only film of the trilogy to be made in 2.35:1.

A trilogy with five films...interesting. Douglas Adams could get away with that, but you sir, are no Douglas Adams. Wink

Sorry, I forgot what it meant,
please forgive me.
I should've said series instead,
darn my brain!

Why? the movie is great like it is, I don´t see what more could be added, even when (at least to me) a Director´s Cut is always better than the Theatrical Cut.

Well, the first and second films were great, the third was alright, and the fourth was just plain horrible. I'd rather leave it at 1:85:1.

Batman Begins is 2.35:1 I think. Thats it though.
