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

Hoping to capitalize on the massive success of The Avengers, Disney opts for 3D again…

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.

The first rule of film criticism is: you most definitely DO talk about film. An unassuming gladiator in the arena, this Space Monkey asks the important questions: Are you not entertained? Who's Zed? Are you an achiever? Initially well-versed in English literature, Nicole picked up movie quotes as a second tongue to marry together her deep-rooted appreciation for language and film. When not tallying Brad Pitt's countless and marvelously resonant instances of on-screen eating, your very own Remy is experimenting with exciting new recipes from Gusteau's cookbook. And when I have some more spare time? What am I doing? I'm quietly judging film. A disagreement, you say? Well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
