Man Of Steel getting 3D post-production conversion
Superman will hit the screen in 3D when Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel arrives next year...
While Christopher Nolan has famously resisted 3D for his movies, including the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, Warner Bros is embracing it for next summer's superhero reboot, Man Of Steel.
The new Superman movie has already been shot and is currently in post-production under the stewardship of director Zack Snyder. But it's now been revealed (briefly, before the page was taken away) over at the official IMAX site that Man Of Steel will be released in 3D. That's in addition to taking advantage of the IMAX format too, of course.
Given the premium on 3D tickets, and the fact that people are still willing to pay it, this isn't a massively surprising move. There's plenty of time for Warner Bros to get this right, too. When the new Superman film first started shooting, the idea was for the film to release at the end of the year. Now, there's extra time built into the schedule, given that Man Of Steel won't be with us until June 2013.
We wonder if a trailer might be imminent, perhaps alongside The Dark Knight Rises. That's us doing that speculating thing again, though...
