Superhero ensemble will be post-converted.

Disney has confirmed – what many had already guessed – that Joss Whedon’s ‘The Avengers’ will be converted to 3D before it arrives in cinemas next year.

Talking to Joblo after the announcement, Whedon addressed any concerns regarding the 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 also revealed that he was fully behind the decision to post-covert the movie, “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’ lands in Irish cinemas April 2012.
