Get ready to suit up, 'Iron Man' fans: the trades are saying that Paramount is planning to bring the comic book blockbuster to Blu-ray in late September.

That's according to Home Media Magazine, which is reporting that the $310 million box office smash (the biggest hit of the year so far) will touchdown on Blu-ray September 30, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

No further specs or supplement details are known thus far, but given 'Iron Man's big-ticket action sequences and CGI effects, it seems poised to be one of the season's biggest next-gen hits.

At press time, official word from a Paramount spokesperson is that "...the studio has not made any official announcements regarding a release date for Iron-Man on Blu-ray," though we're told the studio's official release plans are due shortly. Needless to say, stay tuned.

In the meantime, we've added a listing for 'Iron Man' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it is indexed under September 30.
