Disney Studios has announced that “The Avengers” will be released in both 2D and post-converted 3D rather than a 2D only strategy that seemed to be a possibility lately.
The news isn’t a huge surprise considering the past two Marvel films adopted a similar strategy. Whedon tells JoBlo that “he thought about the format ‘every second’ while filming and this isn’t 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’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.”
