‘Dark Knight’ Retail Exclusives? Flip a Coin10 Dec, 2008 By: John Latchem
Retailers are nothing if not predictable. Their lineup of home video exclusives for the No. 1 movie of the year, Warner Home Video’s The Dark Knight, is nearly identical to versions offered for Paramount’s Iron Man a few months ago.

It’s the usual array. Best Buy has little mask replicas (like Iron Man and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull had). Target has a Batman mask case (like Iron Man and Transformers).
But my favorite is probably Wal-Mart’s exclusive. It offers a mini-comic containing reprints of the first Joker and Two-Face stories from the 1940s, as well as a nifty replica of Two-Face’s coin from the film. The only drawback is it comes with the bare-bones version of the DVD.
Of course, real fans will want the Blu-ray Disc version anyway.
