The Superman Blu-Ray Set Is Super-ish, I Guess

So the Superman Blu-ray megaset is going to be a thing. It's due on June 7th, and contains all four Chris Reeve movies, an extended edition of the first Chris Reeve movie, the Richard Donner cut of Superman II, Superman Returns, and then a disc of nothing but extras -- although it should be noted all the discs have extras, not just the last one. It's hard to how these extras compare to the DVD megasets extras -- they definitely don't match up, and I'm too lazy/tired/hungover to figure out what's missing, so you can read the Blu-ray set's extras after the jump, and see the DVD set's extras here. At the very least, I'm pretty sure this thing is the only place to get the non-Donner cut Superman II, III or IV on Blu-ray, unless they decide to sell them all separately. Which is quite possible, I suppose. (Via Geeks of Doom)
