“Iron Man 3” and “Thor 2” to be Released in 3D


In an update to their upcoming release schedule, Disney announced today that their next two Marvel features, Iron Man 3 and Thor 2: The Dark World, will be released in 3D.  After the phenomenal box-office performance of this year’s The Avengers, largely due to inflated 3D tickets sales, it’s unsurprising that the the studio has chosen to follow in the same vein.

Iron Man 3 is slated for release on May 3, 2013 with Thor 2 closing out the year on November 8, 2013.

A release date for the newest addition to the Marvel filmic universe, Ant-Man, has also been confirmed for November 2015, just after the second installment of The Avengers franchise.

No official announcement has yet been made on whether other future releases, Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy,  and the yet untitled Avengers sequel, will also be available in 3D, but it’s probably a safe bet.
