Unfortunately, it appears the DVD will be rather bare bones and without bonus features. It’s something those confined to standard definition entertainment have come to expect in recent years, though, so it’s not too surprising.
Speaking of the comic book that’s listed among the bonus features, it can be read in .PDF format online, courtesy of Fox. Written by F.J. DeSanto and illustrated Jesus Hervas, it actually serves as prequel to the feature film, and you can find it here.
Hitman: Agent 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins and squares off in an epic battle with his deadliest foe.
