If you had any doubt as to whether Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” will be visually and technically awesome enough Snyder, Warner Bros. and Co., want to alleviate those anxieties by releasing the film in 3-D in select theaters.
That’s right, it was announced Wednesday that Superman’s super powers will be better viewed in three dimensions when the film is released on June 14, 2013.
“The film is going to be a visually exciting experience in all formats: 2D, 3D and IMAX,” Snyder said in a press release released yesterday. “Anticipating how audiences today embrace 3D, we designed and photographed the movie in a way that would allow ’Man of Steel’ to captivate those movie goers, while respecting fans who prefer a more traditional cinematic experience. We’ve taken great measures to ensure the film and the story come first, and 3D is meant as an enhancement.”
This shouldn’t come as too big a surprise for fans of comic book movie adaptations, since most recent “event” films have been either filming select scenes in 3-D or converting in post production, and Snyder has always seemed opened to the concept in previous interviews.
“I think that 3D is pretty awesome if it’s done as part of the cinematic language as opposed to being a gimmick,” he told Digital Spy.
And let’s not forget the fact that this 3-D viewing option provides us Henry Cavil fans with an even better way to see the very handsome actor in action.
