‘The Avengers’ Makes Last Minute Change to 3D

It wasn't shot in 3D, but that's how it will be shown for some reason.

The first disappointing Avengers news came down the pipe today, as Disney announced that Joss Whedon's movie version of the comic book series, featuring a crossover between the Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and Hulk franchises, will be screened in 3D. By itself this doesn't come as a shock – 3D inflates ticket prices so studios love it – but the disappointing thing is that the film wasn't even shot in 3D, and post-conversion processes have gained a reputation for shoddiness.

Deadline reported on the news, which included an updated on one of the untitled Marvel Studios projects. We don't know what it is, but we do know that its release date has moved up from June 27, 2014, and will now be released on April 4, 2014. Gee, thanks. Just tell us it's Guardians of the Galaxy already, alright? We're waiting to hear back from Joss Whedon & Co., to find out if they're happy about the change, planned it all along (like J.J. Abrams just announced he's doing in Star Trek 2) or had this creative decision foisted upon them for marketing purposes. It could go either way, so we'll be curious to hear his/their thoughts.

What do you think? Are you excited to see an Avengers movie in 3D? Even if it's an afterthought, thrown together after production wrapped?

CraveOnline will be back with more Avengers news after we add Dewbacks in the background.
