Judging by the steady solid Blu-ray pre-orders for Marvel’s Iron Man 3 starring Robert Downey Jr. at Amazon.com, it will be one of the hottest home video releases a little later this year. We initially thought later would mean September, but new information suggests Tony Stark and pals will swoop into homes a little earlier.
According to a report at MTV’s Screen Crush, the finalized Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD release date for Iron Man 3 is August 27, 2013. They site their own sources for the information which helps solidify its believability. MTV isn’t about to make up information like that and print it.
Screen Crush doesn’t have any additional information about the release other than reconfirming that the extra Chinese footage will appear re-edited into a short film.
Iron Man and Iron Man 2 were distributed on Blu-ray and DVD via Paramount Home Entertainment and both arrived in late September. With Marvel now under Disney, we’re getting the latest May theatrical release essentially a month early.
