The Christopher Nolan produced, Zack Snyder directed Man of Steel looks to be trying to conquer a different dimension as Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have announced that the film will be getting the 3D post conversion treatment. Snyder said that the film was designed and photographed in a way that would allow for an easier post conversion process. The film, set to be released on June 14, 2013, will now be getting a 3D release in select theaters, in addition to the 2D and IMAX showings.
As a big fan of Superman, I’m glad to see that they believe in the movie enough (or just want it to make a ton of money) that they would post convert, something that’s proved perilous in the past. However, anything combining the words 3D and Zack Snyder seems treacherous and given Nolan’s involvement it’s surprising that they would even consider 3D post conversion. Considering that Warner Bros would like to get to a Justice League film soon, there’s a lot riding on Man of Steel being successful and hopefully the post conversion won’t hurt its chances.
Man of Steel stars Henry Cavill in the role of Superman/Clark Kent along with three-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams (The Fighter), Academy Award winners Kevin Costner and Russell Crowe, Oscar nominee Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, and Laurence Fishburne.
