UPDATE: Ain’t It Cool News is reporting they received an email from Warner Brothers denying the IMAX 3D conversion. According to the email, which you can read by clicking here, IMAX made an inputting error. So, Man of Steel will be released in IMAX, but will not be getting a 3D conversion.
Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel, will get post converted to IMAX and 3D. I’m actually a little surprised by this, because I thought Snyder was filming in 3D. I know he shot some scenes in IMAX, but apparently they’re being converted as well for The IMAX Experience.
Do you seek out 3D? Personally. I avoid it whenever possible. I haven’t seen a film yet, including Avatar, where I thought 3D added to the experience. For me it will always be a gimmick to charge higher ticket prices.
Here’s the Man of Steel synopsis:
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question ‘Why am I here?’ Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.
Man of Steel hits theatres June 14, 2013.
