Paramount Pictures has confirmed that Joss Whedon's The Avengers will be released in 3D. The movie was shot in 2D which means it will go through the post-conversion process, which I really didn't care for in Thor. 3D has just become a way to charge audiences more money to see a movie, and in my opinion it's not worth the price 90% of the time. Some films have been great in 3D like Avatar and Tron: Legacy, but most of them really just don't do it for me. What are your thoughts on The Avengers being released in 3D?
The film brings together the epicness of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), and the villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston).
Here's the synopsis:
Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”–the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble in summer 2012. In “Marvel’s The Avengers,” superheroes team up to pull the world back from the brink of disaster when an unexpected enemy threatens global security.
The highly anticipated Marvel film comes out on May 4th, 2012.
Just a quick update to let you know that Joss Whedon has offered up his 2 cents on this 3D business saying...
"there definitely are movies that shouldn't be in 3D... THE AVENGERS isn't obnoxiously 3D.... There's no, 'Oh look, we're going to spend 20 minutes going through this tunnel because it's in 3D!' And no one is pointing at the screen the entire time. But it's an action movie. Things tend to hurtle toward the screen anyway."
I still don't feel the need to see the movie in 3D. The fact that it is being converted to 3D to charge people more money to see the move is obnoxious enough. He went on to say...
"Yeah, it's fun!...I'm not a big fan of extreme long lens, talky movies - I like to see the space I'm in and relate to it, so 3D kinda fits my aesthetic anyway. And the technology has advanced so far in the past couple years."
