Joss Whedon Assures THE AVENGERS' 3D Usage Will Not Be "Obnoxious!"

Joss Whedon Assures THE AVENGERS' 3D Usage Will Not Be "Obnoxious!"

Writer-director Joss Whedon has addressed any concerns regarding Marvel's The Avengers movie being converted to 3D, following confirmation of the format usage. Check it out!

While Disney announced roughly an hour ago that Marvel's The Avengers flick would be released in the ever-growing 3D format, the writer & director Joss Whedon has opened up on the matter exclusively with Joblo. Ultimately promising that the format usage won't be repulsive, for those concerned, read on below!

Whedon knew from the very beginning his film would eventually be converted to 3D saying he thought about the format "every second" while filming. Whedon is sensitive to the concerns of audiences admitting "there definitely are movies that shouldn't be in 3D" while assuring fanboys "THE AVENGERS isn't obnoxiously 3D."

"There's no, 'Oh look, we're going to spend 20 minutes going through this tunnel because it's in 3D!' And no one is pointing at the screen the entire time. But it's an action movie. Things tend to hurtle toward the screen anyway."

Whedon says he was 100% behind the idea from the beginning. "Yeah, it's fun!...I'm not a big fan of extreme long lens, talky movies - I like to see the space I'm in and relate to it, so 3D kinda fits my aesthetic anyway. And the technology has advanced so far in the past couple years."

Marvel's The Avengers 3D is the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner with Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Hiddleston, directed by Joss Whedon, Marvel's The Avengers will be released May 4, 2012.

Haha, Whedon is awesome. I hate 3D, but since I probably won't have any choice, I'll have to see in that format. Hopefully it will be a good conversion.

"THE AVENGERS isn't obnoxiously 3D."

Then WTF is that then? :P

WolvieCBM - 12/22/2011, 3:08 PM
TheIrishAvenger: What? It's a cool looking shot of Cap, and Whedon probably paying homage to that First Avenger scene.
Spidey91 - 12/22/2011, 3:12 PM
I'll see it in 2-D anyway,3-D is too f*cking expensive in my country
Dynamo - 12/22/2011, 3:14 PM

I hate the screen shot. My problem isn't with the shot itself as it is with Evans pose. The way he swings his hip forward is so gay...
NerdyGeek - 12/22/2011, 3:14 PM
@WolvieCBM: Well the picture doesn't really explain what I mean...

(Go to 0:48 to see the full shot)

Seems pretty gimmicky to me
FightAs0ne - 12/22/2011, 3:19 PM
Sometimes I'd rather see movies shot in 3D than see them when their converted but I trust Joss so I'll give it a chance its only 12 bucks anyway...
Hickspy - 12/22/2011, 3:21 PM
Or they know...not convert it to 3D and have it be a perfectly good film on its own.
PsyGuy - 12/22/2011, 3:21 PM

Well that's definitely not offensive to anybody.
marvel72 - 12/22/2011, 3:21 PM
3d or not 3d,i'm gonna see it in 2d.
Dynamo - 12/22/2011, 3:23 PM
Only if being gay is an insult.
HelaGood - 12/22/2011, 3:26 PM
i am sooooooooooooo sick of 3d!!! and like marvel72 i will be seeing it in 2D
nuck82 - 12/22/2011, 3:26 PM
not paying $10 more for 3d anyway. ill stick to 2d and love it
FanboyTrump - 12/22/2011, 3:27 PM
Bill O' Reilly is a douche bag
ArrowToTheKnee - 12/22/2011, 3:30 PM
Another reason not to watch this movie
Fogs - 12/22/2011, 3:34 PM
Good to hear they're not forcing scenes to 3D (and I believe it because I didn't see anything forced in Thor or Caps).

Not gonna watch it in 3D anyway.
AsianVersionOfET - 12/22/2011, 3:34 PM
What a sell out. He's gay, this movie's gay, this article is gay, and now I'm gay along with everyone else for having commented on it. How's a goin' my gay friends?!
JDUKE25 - 12/22/2011, 3:35 PM
yep....I'll be seeing this in 2D.
marvel72 - 12/22/2011, 3:37 PM
i'm definetly watching the amazing spider-man in 3d because it was shot in 3d,i may watch the hobbit in 3d as well.
heisei24 - 12/22/2011, 3:38 PM
filming in 3d needs skill,otherwise it will turn out like POTC 4
JDUKE25 - 12/22/2011, 3:41 PM
@marvel72 agreed, that actually looks like it will be "Amazing" in 3d.
Spidey91 - 12/22/2011, 3:43 PM

yeah,it's not like you can't find a 2-D version...oh wait,yes you can

DioFoRio - 12/22/2011, 4:07 PM
Asianversionofet@ Having a small penis doesn't make you gay makes you asian ; )
BigK1337 - 12/22/2011, 4:15 PM

Is it because the movie is in 3D or is it due to Hawkeye being in the movie wgi, base on your name, reminds you as to how you will never go on awesome adventures anymore. LOL

aRandomSinisterClone - 12/22/2011, 4:16 PM
He should put his money where his mouth is. If its cheesy, refunds for all unhappy customers. And I didn't no spidey was shot in 3d, makes it sound even better.
ArrowToTheKnee - 12/22/2011, 4:41 PM
Avengers is going to be completely overshadowed in 2012. Can't [frick]ing wait. It's gonna be a good year :D
sexfoodcomics - 12/22/2011, 4:45 PM
YOu guys don't have to see it in 3d , you know that right?
thetheak - 12/22/2011, 4:46 PM
Why is this news?

Here is an interview with Stellan Skarsgard from AUGUST discussing the 3d conversion decision:
AC1 - 12/22/2011, 4:46 PM
I may watch it in 3D for Scar Jo and Cobie Smulders, if the conversion is good during their screen time, it'll be worth the extra cash.
headlopper - 12/22/2011, 4:58 PM
3-D is for sociopaths and circus midgets.
Howlett - 12/22/2011, 5:18 PM
why do they want to film them in 3D? this movies made me puke after watching them.
adapunisher - 12/22/2011, 5:25 PM
2D all the way
Ace101 - 12/22/2011, 5:50 PM
sounds good aint got no problem wit 3d. even if i wear 3d glasses on top of my own prescription glasses still no problem. just a little darker thats all. BUT! if there is not enough 3d scenes in the movie then there is no point in releasing it in 3d aka clash of the titans. It will be even better than it was in Thor and CA:TFA. Ill see it in 3D just to see what the movies like.
maybe they will make post avengers movies that are 3D worthy to be filmed in 3D like Avatar and T3:DOTM both epic in terms of visuals...*Cough* THOR 2 *Cough* Dr Strange *Cough* GotG *Cough* :P
MakioGrant - 12/22/2011, 5:55 PM
The Captain America 3d sucks .... (IMO)
marvel72 - 12/22/2011, 6:00 PM
@ headlopper

i'm not a midget i'm 6ft 3",i maybe a sociopath though. :D
Bodwulf - 12/22/2011, 6:24 PM
He also mentioned this film will be in color and that no costumes were changed to add more color to them just be obnoxious.
Also this film will be a "talkie" but that he assures fans no xtra lines were added to be overwhelming to comic fans.
Coloso - 12/22/2011, 6:27 PM
But @Hela you'll miss the Skrulls in all their 3D glory!
bhorwith22 - 12/22/2011, 6:31 PM
Why do I always see people complaining that they have "no choice" but to watch a movie in 3D? I've never seen any movie that wasn't released in 2D.
valeriesghost - 12/22/2011, 6:32 PM
If its really good in 2d then i will go back and watch it in 3d.
DCMarvelFreshman - 12/22/2011, 6:41 PM
@bhorwith22 Like one of my great friends, outside of US, some places have no choice but to see a film in 3D.
