I guess it makes sense. Warner Bros. has already delayed Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” for a whole year, and since the film is just sitting there waiting for its 2013 release date doing not a whole lot, why not go ahead and post-convert it into 3D, too? The kids still love 3D, don’t they? (Honestly, though, I know a LOT of kids who just hate it. Which is ironic. Isn’t 3D supposed to cater to kids?)
And so, Warner has officially announced that Superman, starring Henry Cavill as the new man of steel, will be coming to you in 3D when he returns to the big screen on June 14, 2013.
But don’t worry you, you 3D-haters. Zack Snyder assures us it’ll be super awesome keen:
The film is going to be a visually exciting experience in all formats: 2D, 3D and IMAX. 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.
I would normally spend the next few sentence railing against 3D, but I’ve learn to not care. Look, it’s up to you if you want to pay extra to see a movie that was post-converted into 3D. Love having random objects fly at your face for absolutely no reason while stuffing your fat face with popcorn? Have at it, chum.
“Man of Steel” co-stars Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and Russell Crowe.
