In news that should have probably been anticipated (because, well, Zack Snyder is involved), Warner Bros. announced today that the upcoming Superman movie Man Of Steel will be released in 3D, 2D and IMAX. So basically you can view it in any format you want. Or, if you’re somewhat insane, you can view it in all three, write down the differences and blog about it when you get home.
Snyder had this to say on the decision to go three-dimensional:
“The film is going to be a visually exciting experience in all formats: 2D, 3D and IMAX. Anticipating how audiences today embrace 3D, we designed and photographed the movie in a way that would allow ‘Man of Steel’ to captivate those movie goers, while respecting fans who prefer a more traditional cinematic experience. We’ve taken great measures to ensure the film and the story come first, and 3D is meant as an enhancement.”
The film stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, and is produced by Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder.
Thus far, Man Of Steel is looking to be a kind of twisted Nolan/Snyder blend, with all the deadly seriousness of Nolan’s Batman movies, and the… um… 3Dness of Snyder’s? Yeah. We’ll go with that.
So, what do you think of this announcement? What format will you be watching Man Of Steel in?
