Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Man of Steel and Pacific Rim on Ultra HD Blu-ray in 2016, the company announced.
As Ultra HD Blu-ray players become available to consumers in early 2016, Warner Bros. will enter the Ultra HD Blu-ray market.

"We are excited to take this next technological leap which will allow us to bring our audiences the best possible home viewing experience with crystal clear images and immersive audio," said Ron Sanders, President, Warner Bros.
