This is the only title out of the 5 that is sold out from Zavvi. Probably due to international orders.

It's still available from the other retailers. I see that Amazon UK is currently allowing shipping to Canada for this.

The Dark Knight Trilogy now has the steelbooks only, without any extras, listed on CeDe. Batman and Batman Returns are only listed as the Collectors Edition's.
There are new pics, showing the steelbooks from a different angle.

The steelbook only editions do have extras
Extras are on discs

When mentioning extras in regards to DVD/Blu-ray/UHD releases that always means discs content

When it comes to items like slipbox/slipcover/booklet/art cards etc etc that's means collectible packaging content

Thanks for clarifying. I can‘t edit it anymore. If a moderator is still able to, you can change it to avoid confusions.

I feel like these are gonna have a cheap finish. I'm just not seeing these turn out good, but I hope I'm wrong, so people who ordered can be happy with the final product. I'm gonna stick with Blufans, Manta Lab & HDZeta.

Apologies if posted elsewhere already but haven't haven't it, Golden Discs (Ireland) put up this image advertising these releases, looks like the sleeves differ from the steels:

Really don't get why these are classed as 'ultimate' editions..
Let's face it, the market has been flooded with the Dark Knight Trilogy steelbooks over and over for years and that will continue for years to come...
As these are supposedly 'ultimate' are we to assume that all future editions will be inferior? :naughty::naughty:

It's a gimmick, but you know it :)

They're gonna remaster BB and TDK at some point, there's definitely room for improvement in those transfers.
Then, after that, they might be done with milking these movies.

The slips images on Golden Discs are the same as previously posted Batman Returns and Batman (1989)

They're both scans of the original negative, in native 4K, with a director approved HDR grading. There is literally nothing else to remaster. Unless nolan changes his mind on dolby atmos & vision, which is unlikely, that's what you're stuck with.
