Yahoo is reporting on this set now.  I just noticed that this includes the theatrical and directors cut of the first movie.  I can retire my old laserdisc now.

Huh.  Looks like the box set has changed quite a bit since it was announced.  No Returns and no supergirl.

Man this blows.

The set has gone from 14-discs to 8 discs, and now won't even feature the Donner cut of #2... you'll have to buy that seperate.  You get the 4-disc Superman, 2 disc Lester Superman 2, and one disc per 3 and 4.

From EXTRAORDINARY to disapointing... I had high hopes for this set.

There could be several varities of the box set offered at once.  I can understand not wanting to do a 14 disc set as the SRP may be daunting to the average consumer.

Man, I hate Warner. They produce some excellent titles, but they are total b*****ds when it comes to RRPs and value for money.

What the hell?

This has changed, so if III and IV are just one disc each then I guess we won't get the deleted scenes for IV. This is very disappointing. I've been looking forward to this Box set.

How did you arrive at that conclusion (that the Donner version won't be included) based on the above Yahoo link?

Ahh. Yes. If true then you're quite correct. This set isn't all that it could be. I'd be happy without the George Reeves stuff (no disrespect to the man) and the theatrical of SM: The Movie. My (completely redundant) wish list would be:-

Disc 1: Superman: The Movie (Directors/Extended Cut
Disc 2: Extras (possibly incorporating material for SM2 as well)

Disc 3: Superman 2: Theatrical (plus extras)
Disc 4: Superman 2: Directors Cut (plus extras)

Disc 5: Superman 3 (Extras. But I don't really know what extras I'd be wanting to see on this film)

Disc 6: Superman 4 (Extras. Deleted scenes incl. Clive Mantle's nuclear man scenes)

There. 6 discs. Nice round figure.
