Disney today announced that The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon, will also be available in 3D when it opens May 4, 2012. The movie wasn’t shot in 3D, so it’ll be going through a 3D conversion between now and May.
In related Marvel news, Disney has moved an untitled Marvel movie from June 27, 2014 to April 4, 2014. Marvel already has a movie set for May 16, 2014 so it’ll be a busy period for superheroes. With both Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 set for 2013 one of these could potentially be the Captain America sequel, or they could be something new such as Ant-Man, Runaways, or Doctor Strange which are all in development.
