Earlier today, Walt Disney Pictures announced Marvel's the Avengers will be converted for a 3D release. Director Joss Whedon recently spoke about the news, assuring fans that Marvel's the Avengers isn't, "obnoxiously 3D." Here's what the filmmaker had to say below.
Director Joss Whedon discusses Marvel's The Avengers 3D conversion
"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."
Joss Whedon also said he is fully behind the decision to covert Marvel's the Avengers to 3D in post-production, and that 3D fits his style of directing.
"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 kind of fits my aesthetic anyway. And the technology has advanced so far in the past couple years."
Marvel's the Avengers is still keeping its May 4, 2012 release date, despite the 3D conversion.
Marvel's The Avengers was released May 4th, 2012 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.
