Decades before blockbuster Extended Cuts were common, Superman proved a true “Man of Tomorrow.” Superman: The Movie received an ahead-of-its-time makeover for its television premiere – nearly 40 more minutes of story, creating a two-night television event. Audiences had already been swept off their feet by Christopher Reeve’s Last Son of Krypton, and now there was more to enjoy. Unseen in decades, this version is paired here with Richard Donner’s definitive vision of his film, the Special Edition Director’s Cut (2000), to create a supersized celebration of Metropolis’ favorite son that preserves the director’s intent while feeding superfan demands.

I asked about a new master being non-teal, and about the theatrical cut getting the 70mm mix.

If it's a brand new master, being WAC it would likely be non-teal so fingers crossed. Still can't believe this one is getting an official 2.35 HD official release!

One can only hope that this is successful and paves the way for the release of other TV versions.

I agree 1000%.

In retrospect, the Halloween Deluxe Collector's Box did have the T.V. version of Halloween (a hybrid of T.V. and R-rated cut) was great to see along with the Producer's Cut of H6. Maybe that helped get some of this off the ground in hind sight.
