The Avengers to be shot in 3D?

Marvel Studio’s current plan is to convert Thor into 3D once the film is completed, and the recent footage shown at Comic-Con was presented in this format. Captain America: The First Avenger is also set to be converted into 3D, with its effects being rendered instead of converted. Now word comes from Showbiz 411 that Joss Whedon will actually be shooting The Avengers using 3D equipment as opposed to converting the film once it has been shot.

This will be the first time Marvel Studios has actually shot a film in the popular 3D format. Whedon and the studio have hinted for some time that The Avengers would be presented in 3D. Showbiz 411 is reporting that efforts to actually shoot the film instead of converting it are a “done deal”.

The 3D news hasn’t been confirmed by Marvel Studios as of yet, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted with any further news on The Avengers as soon as we have more information.

Another upcoming project from Marvel is X-Men: First Class and just added Oliver Platt to its growing cast. Deadline has the scoop on Platt joining Matthew Vaughn’s ensemble comic book adaptation as a character known only as “The Man in Black.” Apparently this odd character is neither a mutant nor a reincarnation of the mysterious character from “Lost.” Okay, so who is he? Tons of casting news keeps coming out of the woodwork for X-Men: First Class. Just last night we heard the lovely Rose Byrne would play Professor X’s love interest Moira McTaggart; over the weekend it was also reported that Jason Flemyng would be playing Azazel, a mutant who is father to Nightcrawler (of X-Men 2). There’s probably a little bit more casting down the road, too. After all, we still don’t have anyone lined up for Cyclops yet. Stay tuned for the latest updates!

The Avengers comes to theaters May 4th, 2012 and starsRobert Downey Jr.Scarlett JohanssonChris EvansChris HemsworthSamuel L. JacksonDon CheadleClark GreggTom Hiddleston. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.
