Get Your Own Hero Glasses When 'The Avengers' Hits Theaters in 3D

January 30, 2012

The Avengers

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 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!

The Avengers - 3D Glasses Promo

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.

I guess it is kind of gimmicky, but I was so stoked when I got the Harry Potter ones!

The 3D movement thing will never help move the story along in movies. And no amount of different looking glasses will help that.

meh im kinda sucked into 3D now, i don't understand the hate over 3D it's awesome,brings a whole new level in the film when your watching it beyond anything,oh and im soo gonna pick up all those glasses ūüôā

These glasses look awesome (albeit a little too Oakleys circa 1995). Too bad 3D movies don't look good regardless of how much plastic cross promotion is going on.

Death to 3D.

Brandon on Jan 30, 2012


I second the death to 3D. I hate it when I go to the cinemas and when I want to see a movie on impulse, they automatically assume that I want to see the 3D version and charge me for it. When I say that I want to see the non 3D version, they look at me like I'm crazy. Screw 3D.

And I mean that when I want to see a movie on impulse, it's sometimes a movie with the option for 3D and non 3D

Chris Amaya on Jan 30, 2012


So I guess the important question is that if I pick a pair of these up and take them to subsequent 3D movies will I be charged less for a ticket because I have my own glasses?

Awtan90 on Jan 30, 2012


It's been my experience that no, they will still charge you the same. The extra $ is "for the film and it's presentation", the glasses are a "free accessory".

Your paying for the cost of equipment and extra staffing for 3-D movies and not the glasses.

mamo on Jan 31, 2012


these look like a lot of fun... I'll get all 4.

DaftBot on Jan 30, 2012


hell yeah ima pick up a pair of those bad boys! with the only intention to see the amazing spider-man and hobbit with them because i'm pretty sure those are the only movies coming out this year that were actually shot in 3-D. plus they were shot with the new RED EPIC cameras which hopefully are gonna make these movies so much more fuckin awesome!

Croniccris on Jan 30, 2012


p.s. i'd get the hulk ones too just so i could stand out from everybody else wearing the regular 3-D glasses 

Croniccris on Jan 30, 2012


And the girls get screwed with no Black Widow glasses.  Remember some articles about issues with female characters in the comics lately and lack of female writers too.

Rickdon on Jan 31, 2012


not gunna lie, im buying at least 2 of them

rockkicker on Jan 31, 2012


Why is Avengers a post convert? So many lower budget movies have real 3d that looks great. I mean why bother if you are not interested enough to do it right? It just hurts 3d format overall. Either way, these glasses are pretty cool for the nerds in us.

Kaim on Jan 31, 2012


I'm in for the Cap glasses. I don't even know if I'll see the film in 3D, but still want the glasses, lol. 

Scotty97 on Jan 31, 2012


Where them in public if you want to fight off the ladies with a baseball bat.

Kaim on Jan 31, 2012


I like them all, but I honestly thought Thor's was Spiderman's for a sec there...
