Leonine / Mondo / Marvel
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is not only getting bigger and more varied on the big screen and television screens. The MCU is also growing continuously on the home cinema shelf — not only because of the constant supply of fresh films, but also because previous titles from the mammoth franchise are constantly being reissued. The limited steel book editions with designs from the famous artist forge Mondo are particularly popular with fans with a passion for collecting .
Various Marvel blockbusters have already made it into home cinemas in this striking look – and now two of the cornerstones of the popular film series are being added: From August 26, 2022, there will be “ Iron Man ” and “ Iron Man 2 ” in stylish limited editions . The Mondo Steelbooks include the film on both standard Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray.

While home cinema releases based around the Marvel Cinematic Universe are mostly handled by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, Leonine Studios distributes the «Iron Man» films due to an old license deal.
In terms of content, the Mondo Steelbooks will be identical to the earlier standard releases of the Tony Stark stories — they will therefore feature the powerful German soundtracks in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 format that are so valued by sound-loving fans. So it’s worth dusting off the soundbar again.
More Marvel in the Mondo look
A whole batch of Mondo Steelbooks for films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe was published about a year ago, and a second batch followed at the beginning of this year. If you haven’t bought it yet, but are now spurred on by the releases of «Iron Man» and «Iron Man 2» and want a big Mondo-Marvel all-round hit, you’ll find it here:

Aside from the MCU, Mondo also takes on various other popular blockbusters and some iconic titles from the program cinema or genre niche. Many such Mondo Steelbooks have long since been sold out . The first editions in the Mondo look, such as the steel book for Nicolas Winding Refn’s “ Drive ”, and also some of the steel books for Disney classics such as “ Alice in Wonderland ” are in such demand that even used ones can only be obtained for a great deal of money .

And who knows, maybe the Marvel Steelbooks will fare similarly in the near future? By the way, if you’re on a 4K spree right now but don’t insist on the Marvel+Mondo combo, another recent release might be more your thing: one of the greatest classics in gangster cinema just recently got its 4K upgrade, and the limited editions have proven to be in high demand…
