Take a Look at the Gods of "Thor!" And Of Course, "Thor" and "Captain America" Will Be 3-D 


It looks fierce, in the picture, at least. But my inner geek was pounding with excitement when I saw this gods of "Thor" picture at the LA Times!

But then I continued reading the article, and came across the gimmick of the moment, 3-D. Yes folks, "Thor" and "Captain America" will be 3-D movies, are you excited? No?

"Thor" director Kenneth Branagh probably sensed that many of us are really not 3-D fans, so he's taking his case to the biggest conference made for geeks like you and me, Comic-Con!

If you want to hear Branagh's 3-D decision, head on out to Comic-Con on Saturday, July 24, at Hall H, and you'll also get a glimpse of the cast namely Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins, although, it's a BIG although, we don't know if all three will be present. Wanna bet Hemsworth will be the only one to attend? Okay, maybe Portman too.

Branagh told the LA Times, "We came to feel that in our case 3-D could be the very good friend of story and character for a different kind of experience."

So "Thor" will be the first Marvel film in 3-D and the second? "Captain America: The First Avenger" out July 22, 2011 from director Joe Johnston of "Jurassic Park 3" and "The Wolfman" who thinks 3-D "tends to be overused and can be a little bit gimmicky."

But here's the caveat -- both "Captain America" and "Thor" are shot in 2-D but "the considerable special effects for the films were conceived and executed from the beginning in 3-D."

Hhmmm, remember how horrible "Clash of the Titans" looked in 3-D? Well, that one was upconverted too, you know...
