Warner Brothers Archive Collection has announced plans to release the full 188-minute extended version of Richard Donner’s iconic 1978 Superman film.

First premiering on ABC TV in 1982 and then on KCOP in 1994, the new cut boasts footage not seen in either the 143-minute theatrical release or the 151-minute official director’s cut of the film.

Originally dubbed the Salkind International Extended Cut and later the KCOP Version, the extended version contains footage and music not used in the theatrical version and more material than the 2000 restoration, including extensions of the destruction of Krypton, Smallville, Fortress of Solitude, Daily Planet and earthquake scenes.

There’s no set release date yet, but mist think it will arrive on Blu-ray by the end of the year. The blu-ray will also include Donner’s final cut of the movie as well.
