Warner Bros. Home Entertainment have joined forces with content blockchain pioneer Eluvio to create the Superman Web3 Movie Experience. Yes, the father of all modern superhero flicks (arguably the best superhero movie of all time) will be released as a multimedia living movie experience allowing DC fans to own and engage with the 1978 Richard Donner film in a new and exciting way.

Web3 Superman Experience
This new way of experiencing the seminal film will allow owners to watch the film in 4K UHD on desktop, mobile, tablet or TV while accessing special features, finding digital easter eggs, viewing artist renderings and image galleries from notable DC artists, and they can also sell or trade the experience in an online marketplace.
The Superman Web3 Movie Experience will be offered in standard and premium editions. The standard edition includes an interactive location-based navigation menu, Superman: The Movie Theatrical Version, previously released special features, and an image gallery featuring stills and behind-the-scenes pictures.
The premium edition includes three variations which will be available for purchase separately. After the ever-changing Superman slogan, these editions are named Truth, Justice and Hope. Each of these variations will feature its own illustration of Christopher Reeves’ Superman from one of three DC artists – Ivan Reiss, Ben Oliver, or Bill Sienkiewicz. Each variation also includes an interactive and explorable location-based navigation menu and three versions of the feature film – Superman: The Movie Theatrical Version; Superman: The Movie Expanded Director’s Cut, and Superman: The Movie Extended TV Edition – along with previously-released special features, and image galleries featuring costume and detail images from the Warner Bros. Archive and stills and behind the scenes galleries.
