Thor & Captain America Movies Coming In 3D, Plus New Thor Image


Jay Cochran - July 14, 2010
It is being reported by the LA Times that both of Marvel's upcoming "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" movies will be released in 3-D.

On Saturday, July24 , Marvel Studios has the final studio presentation in the expo's biggest room, Hall H, and "Thor" director Kenneth Branagh will use that climactic slot not just to introduce some of his cast -- a cast that includes Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins, but its unlikely that all three will be in San Diego -- but also to persuade skeptical fans that 3-D will add new dimensions to the 2011 blockbuster, and not just in the obvious way.

Both "Captain America" and "ThorĒ use 2-D for principal photography, but the considerable special effects for the films were conceived and executed from the beginning in 3-D, something that will help them avoid certain pitfalls, said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.

That being said both directors Feige and Branagh who were interviewed by the times admitted they were well aware the negative stigma hardcore fans like those who attend Comic-Con have towards using 3-D.

"I'd say there's not a great feeling out there for conversion based on some of the films that may have succeeded financially but had their artistry come under fire," Feige said, not naming names but most likely referring to "Clash of the Titans," the Warner Bros. release that surpassed $490 million in worldwide box office but was savaged by critics for a rushed 3-D conversion that many saw as especially clumsy, distracting and ill-advised.

However with these films one can expect some amazing effects, especially in Thor, Kevin Feige of Marvel Entertainment said, "The citadels of Asgard and the rainbow bridge at its gates lend themselves to 3-D. "It's one of those maybe rare times where 3-D accentuates the story and the way the viewer is brought into this new world. That's what 'Avatar' and 'Alice in Wonderland' were all about"

Also look for some big announcements in regards to Marvel's upcoming "The Avengers" movie which is being directed by Joss Whedon. This time will likely be used to do some damage control over the recent news of Edward Norton being dumped from the project and confirming Norton's replacement as Bruce Banner/Hulk.

"Thor" opens on May 6, 2011, "Captain America: The First Avenger" opens on July 22, 2011 and "Marvel Studios' The Avengers" on May 4, 2012. For those not attending the San Diego Comic Con which takes place next week from July 21-25, be sure to keep it right here to the ENI network for complete coverage of the event.

Also check out the new image from "Thor" Which depicts Anthony Hopkins as the all-father Odin in the front and our best look yet of Chris Hemsworth in his Thor costume. This new image also appears to give us our first look at Thor's half-brother Loki who is probably one of the main villains of the film who is standing on the right.
