The special features on the DVD include deleted scenes and a Behind-the-Scenes featurette called It’s No Myth. Cool, right? Yeah, well on the Blu-Ray you get those features, an alternate opening called Young Theseus, two alternate endings called This Is Our Last Embrace and (SPOILER alert, we guess) Theseus Kills Hyperion, and another Behind-the-Scenes featurette enticingly titled Caravaggio Meets Fight Club. And guess what? If you buy the Blu-Ray, you’ll also get a graphic novel titled Immortals: Gods & Heroes.

Looking past Henry Cavill’s infinitely blue eyes and goofy grin, it’s not difficult to imagine the 28-year-old British actor transforming into an extremely intense dude as he describes the roughest day he experienced on the “Immortals” set — grasping the complex choreography for the film’s epic final battle.
“I was literally learning it minutes before doing it,” said Cavill during a recent interview to promote the mythological 3-D action flick. “That was fun and a great challenge, but I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and I get pissed off at myself if I don’t get it exactly right.”
