The Dark Knight trilogy to hit Blu-Ray this Fall

Official details regarding a trilogy box-set for Christopher Nolan's Batman movies have hit the airwaves. We will get a 6-disc set featuring the three films and their respective special features, a Hot Wheels toy for each film, art cards by Mondo which feature every villain from the trilogy, and a 48-page hardcover book. It looks like it will also include Ultraviolet digital copies for each film. The set markets for $99.97 and will be available starting September 24, 2013.

Along with the existing special features that are already on the DVD/Blu-Rays we have, there will be two new featurettes featuring Christopher Nolan, Richard Donner, Guillermo del Toro, Zack Snyder, and Damon Lindelof. One featurette will have Nolan and Donner discussing the trials about bringing both Batman and Superman to the big screen while the other features interviews by the others about the incredible impact The Dark Knight trilogy has had. I would assume, and hope, that these two features are lengthy enough and interesting to justify spending money on a set to re-purchase movies you no doubt already have. Not to mention the fact that there are already some trilogy box-sets out already.
