‘The Wolverine’ Blu-ray Coming in December With New, Extended and Unrated Cut

Wolverine Blu ray Extended Cut
20th Century Fox Home Entertainment

The Wolverine‘ was one of the most pleasant surprises of the summer, a shockingly low key and self-contained superhero story that valued its characters above action. Well, at least until the third act, but that’s a complaint for another time and place. The good news is that ‘The Wolverine’ DVD and Blu-ray will arrive on December 3 with an unrated version, allowing for more Wolverine-stabs-ninjas action than ever before!

Of course, with that good news comes a little bit of bad news. Although the “Unleashed Extended Edition” of ‘The Wolverine’ sounds cool, this alternate version of the film will only be available on one of the three available home releases. If you want to see the longer (and potentially gnarlier) version of the movie, you’ll have to pick up the 3D Blu-ray version of the film, which includes the extended cut as well as 3D and non-3D versions of the theatrical version. If that sounds like a bit of a ploy to get you to pick up the slightly more expensive 3D disc…well, you’re probably right.

However, the release does seem to offer plenty of bang for your buck. Both Blu-ray releases will contain an alternate ending, a ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ set tour, an interactive featurette titled ‘The Path of the Ronin,’ the ability to sync the film with a partner app for a second screen experience and, of course, trailers. Sadly, the director’s commentary with Mangold will only be available on the 3D Blu-ray.

Fans who have yet to upgrade to high definition will probably find themselves hugely disappointed with the DVD release, which will contain only the theatrical cut and the vaguely titled special feature ‘Inspiration: A Ronin’s Journey.’

Which version of ‘The Wolverine’ will you be picking up on December 3, 2013? As you can see below, DVD owners will also get screwed out of the cool box art.
