Get Your Own Hero Glasses When 'The Avengers' Hits Theaters in 3D
Since the trend of big blockbusters in 3D certainly isn't going anywhere, the time has come to come up with new ways to entice families to spend the extra dollars to see the film in 3D, even if it's one of those converted films that really isn't intended for the format. So, for all you superheroes out there looking for some action from The Avengers in 3D who want a little extra something for the fun, Bad Taste (via Movies.com) got their hands on an image of some promotional 3D glasses that will dress your eyes up like Iron Man (easily the best ones), The Incredible Hulk, Captain America or Thor. See them below!
Apparently the glasses will cost around $5 and will be available around the time The Avengers is slated to hit theaters. It's a cool partnership between Marvel and RealD 3D, but I feel like this kind of gimmick only hits with kids and obsessive collectors. Other special glasses have been distributed including round spectacles for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and forthcoming podracing goggles for Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. However, when it comes to converted films, it won't make the pop-up 3D effect look better. Hopefully the 3D in The Avengers is worth the money you may spend on these glasses.
