I guess Warners is keeping Zack Snyder's Superman reboot separate from the classics -- or maybe they're just trying to piggyback on the buzz around Snyder's Superman, but whatever. They are releasing a colossal eight-disc edition on June 7 for those super Superman fans that includes Superman: The Movie, Superman II, Superman III, Superman IV: The Quest For Peace, and Superman Returns. And if five movies wasn't enough, you've got extended versions and director's cuts of the first two films and enough special features to keep you busy for 20 hours. That's beyond the 906 minutes of feature films alone. If you're not already pumped on Superman, they've put together a nice little trailer to get you hot and bothered for the set which will retail for $129.95.

Here are the details on special features:
