      i agree. they should keep everything from the original set, but make the box and booklet the size of the ones for the complete batman beyond set. also, they should do a complete teen titans set with all the previous extras, as well as new ones(such as commentaries and an in-depth, 2-hour retrospective documentary on the series that covers all 5 seasons and the movie, teen titans: trouble in tokyo). also, the episode “go” should be included as the first episode on disc 1, because it’s the origin story of the team. it should be an 11-disc set that includes teen titans” trouble in tokyo.

    Hello, my name is Thomas and I’m a Brit, I do hope these DVDs get released over in my country soon as I would’ve liked to have Supes/Bats Public Enemies & Supes/Bats Apocalypse, as well as all the others that have been released by DC Comics, yet their only in America thus far, it just seems a tad unfair that other countries don’t seem to be getting these great animated films shipped over to their side of the pond (we Brits love Batman by the way!:-)-but i think despite my comments this too will be in doubt!
    We shall wait and see
