Rumor: Iron Man 2 Might Be Shot in Glorious IMAX 3D?!
Oh no! This isn't really confirmed news, but a report from our friends at Collider today quotes Jon Favreau as saying that he'd love to do Iron Man 2 in 3D and even potentially shoot scenes on IMAX, just like The Dark Knight did. Considering Iron Man is currently ranked as the #2 box office earner this year, I imagine that Paramount and Marvel might be up for giving Favreau the budget he needs to do both of these. The report is a bit sketchy and Favreau only said that he wants to do it in 3D, not that they actually were going to - but time will tell if they actually make it happen. Although I'm not the biggest fan of 3D, I'm going to let this one slide and still remain considerably excited to for Iron Man 2 to hit in 2010!
Favreau attended at a press conference for the Iron Man DVD and said that he'd love to do the sequel in 3D. "He also called the IMAX Dark Knight footage a game changer and he said he’d love to shoot part of Iron Man 2 in IMAX." And as for the 3D, "it's all about the cost, but if they can make it happen he'd like to do it." This is very exciting news and I know I'm not alone when I say that it would truly be badass to see Iron Man in glorious IMAX 3D kicking Mandarin's ass for two hours. As I said, I hope Paramount and Marvel do give Favreau the money he needs, because if this actually happens, it could potentially give The Dark Knight a run for its money in 2010. Do you think shooting Iron Man 2 in IMAX 3D would be awesome?
