Surprise: Captain America & Other Marvel Movies May Go 3D
Yes, I'm being sarcastic. Honestly, I'm surprised there was no 3D talk for Iron Man 2, but that's besides the point (and there was some talk anyway). Hero Complex published an article earlier today with quotes from Marvel's Kevin Feige: "The team has been doing a lot of research into 3-D processes, and we're looking at it on future films when we have the time," he said. "We will be doing it at some point." So it's essentially inevitable, big surprise (again). They go on to say that Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers could even "potentially be filmed with 3-D cameras," but that seems like speculation for now.
Later after that article was published, another LA Times movie blog, 24 Frames, followed up with their own response to Hero Complex writer Ben Fritz's claims about Marvel and 3D. They say: "While it's impossible to know exactly how fans would have felt about a 3-D version of Iron Man 2, they certainly embraced this [2D] version… The argument from the top of studios' corporate ladders has been that their business needs 3-D to to eliminate risk and stay solidly profitable. But Iron Man 2 did all that [without going 3D]… doing it in the most generous way possible." They're trying to say the success of Iron Man 2 could cause studios to reconsider going 3D, but Feige just said "we will be doing it at some point," so that doesn't really matter.
Most people (who read and comment on this site) seem to be opposed to 3D, specifically when it's added in post-production. However, movies converted to 3D still make a lot of money (e.g. Clash of the Titans). On the other hand, everyone gets excited when a movie (e.g. Tron Legacy) is shot in 3D because it'll look great like Avatar. So with this new speculation/rumor/hope that both Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers may be shot in 3D, does that make any of you guys actually excited for 3D again (at least with these two movies)? Or are you still opposed to 3D in all of its forms, including movies that use 3D cameras?
