Warner Bros. had a choice when it came to Man of Steel: Go massive, likeThe Avengers, and blow out the presentation in 3D and IMAX; or respect the purity of the filmed image, like The Dark Knight Rises and put Zack Snyder’s anticipated Superman movie out in traditional 2D. Care to guess which direction they chose?
As we reported back in July, Man of Steel will arrive in theaters in 3D and IMAX, as confirmed by a press release sent out by Warner Bros. this afternoon.
““The film is going to be a visually exciting experience in all formats: 2D, 3D and IMAX,” Snyder said in the announcement. “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.”
