Joss Whedon promises that ‘The Avengers’ won’t be ‘obnoxiously 3D’

Director insists that 3D film will suit his style

The Avengers director Joss Whedon has promised that his film’s use of 3D will not be “obnoxiously” done. says that Whedon – who recently revealed his plans for his remake of The Hulk franchise with actor Mark Ruffalo – has re-assured fans that converting the film from 2D into 3D in its post-production won’t harm the finished product.

Whedon said:

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.


He went on to add: “But it’s an action movie. Things tend to hurtle towards the screen anyway… I’m not a big fan of extreme long lens, talk- 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.”

Last month, actor Jeremy Renner said that working on The Avengers felt like “the ultimate challenge”. Renner, who plays the character Hawkeye in the film and will be competing for screen time with other Marvel heroes such as Captain America, Thor, The Hulk and Iron Man, added: “There are a lot of things happening. I have no idea what that movie looks like. Zero idea. “

The Avengers is released in the UK on May 4, 2012. You can watch the teaser trailer at the bottom of the page.
