Captain America & Thor Going 3D + godly Thor Pic

The LA Times Movie Blog has posted some slightly disturbing news. It appears as though Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger are getting 3D treatment. While that in itself isn’t the bad news it’s the fact that they will be applying the 3D in post. Yes, ala Clash of the Titans. However, they are planning shots in advance, and while not using the 3D rig used in Avatar and the upcoming Resident Evil: Afterlife film the pre-planning could save the post-3D processing they are planning.

This revelation comes pre Comic-Con in order to prepare the geek masses that will descend upon Hall H on Saturday to catch the Marvel panel.

Thor is currently filming and director Kenneth Branagh has changed his process in order to facilitate 3D scenes. Here’s what he had to say to the LA Times:

Branagh said he changed his approach with some scenes to maximize the 3-D benefits.”A pretty careful conversation is what we’ve been having for quite some time about what we know has to be the most sensible decision: Is it led by story? Can this offer a different type of experience and exploit what we have in the story? It absolutely can … we travel very long distances in the movie and the opportunity to export and exploit the journey of the hero is really offered up as a great potential enhancement here.”

Of course, they also posted this new photo from Thor showing Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, and Tom Hiddleson as Loki. What do you think of it? Too comic-book?


The Times also goes on to say that Captain America is also getting the 3D treatment. Filming for the project started last week and with a July 2011 release it gives them plenty of time to do a proper conversion.
