    Does anyone know what the aspect ratio will be? I hope it's somewhere around 2.35:1 or 2.40:1
    I don't really remember what the ratio was theatrically.

    Maybe they'll make more editions with the Joker on the cover in light of stockpiling requests from the fans? lol!

    You'd think that they'd come up with something NEW for the cover, wouldn't you?

    I agree. And I too am gettin steel book edition, to go right inside my special movie vault.

    True. I was thinking that they could go with the other 2 poters of Joker & Harvey, one with a Joker card, and the other with a campaign pin. You know, the ones that matched with the Batman artwork. The 3-way poster thing? Except instead, just release those 3 individualy, so we'd have a choice between Batman holding his Batarang, Joker with his card, or Harvey with his pin. That woulda been cool. But you're definitely right that this was Joker's movie over Batman's.

    I am pretty sure it's legit. JoBlo is usually right on. Although I do feel that they should have used the Joker art where he is walking away from view, knife in hand. And also the mask edition should have been the Joker clown mask from the movie intro. That would have been cool. You know, this was Ledger's/Joker's movie over Batman's, they should have reflected that with some of the cover art. I do like the steelbook cover though.

    I've got steelbooks for the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" "Die Hard" & "T2: Judgement Day." If TDK is indeed released in steelbook form, then I'll be picking it up for sure.

    Well guys, I'm getting the Steelbook 2-disc Special Edition. I'd have to say those Steelbooks are impressive, my only Steelbook is of X2: X-men United and it is a great edition. So this will be a great addition.

    BTW, I have fan-related TDK DVD special features on my The Dark Knight review, just in case some of you have not seen them and want to know some ideas of mine that could make the DVD. You'll have to scroll down to the bottom, and its a long way down.

  23. -comrade-

    WHY would you buy all of them? Blu-Ray is the only one you really need. And buying them for the sake of owning all different versions is...I'll just say it-- f*cking stupid
