Exclusive: The Dark Knight Blu-ray Covers! (UPDATE)

Superhero Hype! has gotten its hands on a couple early images from the upcoming Blu-ray DVD for Christopher Nolan’s record-setting action movie Dark Knight, which has grossed over $520 million domestically and another $450 million internationally.

Although the standard commercial version of the Blu-ray release will probably have the same poster image of Batman standing in front of a building emblazoned with his logo, we’ve received an image of a Blu-ray cover featuring an image of Heath Ledger’s Joker, and we also have a look at the insert of the Special Edition Blu-ray, which will be available at the same time.

Our source that hooked us up with these imagies told us that the Blu-ray would include “BD Live” and that there would be a 3-disc version with the 3rd disc being a digital copy for iPod or other video player.

UPDATE: We just received some more images of covers for the standard Dark Knight Blu-ray, as well as the packaging for a 2-Disc Batpod Limited Edition, from BDS23420:

2-Disc Batpod Special Edition

2-Disc Batpod Back Cover

Blu-ray Front Cover

Blu-ray Back Cover

Both Blu-ray Covers

If that isn’t enough Dark Knight Blu-ray goodness, here’s and advertisement for the DVD and Blu-ray release:

(Thanks to BDS23420 and Nice Guy Joey for providing the images above.)

Dark Knight is scheduled to be released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 9, 2008, and though it’s not available to pre-order yet, you can keep an eye on it Amazon.
