The Avengers will be released in 3D?

"The Avengers" has a new superpower/flaw- 3D (however you'd like to put it). Walt Disney Studios said Thursday that the movie will be released in the format when it debuts May 4. The movie had previously been slated for 2D release only and was shot with 2D cameras as well. Hmm... Could this decision have any connection with The Dark Knight Rises' trailer which was released on Tuesday andwas heavily praised...

Not certain but makes you wonder how come just after two days, they changed their minds about The Avengers being released just in 2D. However, I think it's a bad move because the film will be converted to 3D in post-production and it is not shot in 3D.

In the same announcement, Walt Disney Studios mentioned another, untitled Marvel movie has moved up from a wide release on June 27, 2014, to a wide release on Apr. 4, 2014. There has been speculation that the sequel to "Captain America" might arrive in 2014.

Also, Disney shed some light on a previously untitled movie scheduled for a Nov. 27, 2013, release. It will be called "Frozen". Reports which are saying "Frozen" is an untitled Pixar movie about dinosaurs -- which is due in 2013 -- are incorrect, a Disney representative told TheWrap.

"The Avengers" won't be the only major 2012 superhero film released in 3D. Another Marvel movie, Columbia Pictures' "The Amazing Spider-Man," will also be released in 3D when it comes out July 3.

However, Warner Bros.' "The Dark Knight Rises," which comes out July 20, will not be released in 3D due to Christopher Nolan's choice of using IMAX format instead of 3D.

However the Avangers fans are excited and will be looking forward to its release on May 4, 2012 starring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Chris Evans as Captain America, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as the Black Widow, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner and Tom Hiddleston as villain Loki (Thor's half-brother). It is written and directed by Joss Whedon.
