Is This the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy’ Blu-ray Box Set [UPDATED]?
We don’t have a release date or any idea what it’s going to contain in terms of bonus material, but if an image posted by a Polish fansite is to be believed — and really, if you can’t trust Polish fansites, who can you trust? — we might have our first look at the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy’ deluxe Blu-ray box set.

According to this leaked photo, consumers can expect a bevy of extra content, given that the set is spread out over an impressive nine discs; it’s also handsomely packaged, with inserts paying tribute to each movie’s main villain and a trio of miniature vehicles used by Batman in the films.
As Bleeding Cool notes, the box is already available for pre-order via Amazon’s French store, and their listing — currently priced around $117 in U.S. dollars — seems to indicate that this packaging is accurate, although it doesn’t offer much in the way of details regarding the contents, beyond saying each movie will get two Blu-rays and a DVD.
One way or another, we should find out more relatively quickly; Amazon.fr lists an October 2 release date, which means we can expect to see Warner Bros. gearing up for a big promotional push sometime over the next couple of months. Hang onto your wallets, Bat-fans.
