Even if Iron Man 2 didn’t match up to to the level of the first film, it still was a lot of fun. If you agree then you might be interested to know that Iron Man 2 is hitting store shelves this Fall.

Paramount Home Entertainment has announced that Iron Man 2 will be released in the U.S. on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download on September 28th, 2010. As has become the norm (particularly with blockbusters like this), the film will have three different releases: a single DVD disc, a two-disc DVD version and a triple combo pack with the DVD, Blu-ray and a digital copy.

So what can you expect from Iron Man 2 in each of the different releases? Well, you’ll be happy to know there’s tons of extras to dig into. Here’s the full list of special features and other technical details from Paramount itself (via Coming Soon):

I will probably end up buying Iron Man 2 and I will likely go for the three-disc combo version simply because I love seeing as much of the behind-the-scenes stuff as possible. As I said, I don’t think the film was anywhere near as good as the first, but I’m very interested to see how the visual effects and all the sets and (of course) the Iron Man suit itself were put together.

Will you be buying Iron Man 2 on DVD or Blu-ray? If so which version will you be laying down your hard-earned cash for?
