The Blu-ray won't arrive until late September, but we've got an early peek at the box art for 'Iron Man.'

As previously reported, Paramount set a September 30 landing for the Robert Downey, Jr. blockbuster, which grossed over $300 million at the domestic box office and proved to be one of the summer's biggest hits. (The studio will debut the Blu-ray day-and-date with the standard DVD.)

As announced, 'Iron Man' will hit Blu-ray as a two disc set, with the feature film presented across a BD-50 dual-layer disc with 1080p video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

Extras include the documentaries "Hall of Armor: The Invincible Iron Man" and "I Am Iron Man," the "Wired: The Visual Effects of Iron Man" featurette, deleted scenes, a Robert Downey Jr. screen test, "The Actor's Process" rehearsal footage, a short film by The Onion ("Wildly Popular Iron Man Trailer to be Adapted into Full Length Film"), still galleries, and the original theatrical trailer.

Exclusive to the Blu-ray release will be BD-Live functionality (Profile 2.0 required) on disc one, including the "Iron Man IQ" interactive feature.

Finally, Paramount has unveiled the final box art for 'Iron Man,' which offers a new twist on the film's original theatrical key art:

As previously announced, suggested list price for the Blu-ray has been set at $39.98.
