‘Captain America 2′ & ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Confirmed For 3D

Guardians of the Galaxy 3D Captain America 2 & Guardians of the Galaxy Confirmed For 3D

After Iron Man laid the foundation for what has become a staple in contemporary pop culture – and helped seal the deal for Disney buying Marvel – Marvel Studios has been steamrolling production of followups and spinoffs ever since. Iron Man 2 came two years later, and the year after that, Thor and Captain America were introduced, bringing with it the 3D format.

More and more blockbusters are now 3D blockbusters and moviegoers can expect all of the upcoming Marvel & DC theatrical releases to take advantage, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014.

The Incredible Hulk along with Iron Man 1 & 2 never got the 3D treatment, but every Marvel Studios production since, and every upcoming release, will take advantage of the format (thanks James Cameron!) to earn that ticket premium bonus at the box office. Marvel confirmed what we already knew, that the Captain America sequel, and the cosmic adventure Guardians of the Galaxy would be releasing in 3D, moments before Disney announced their updated release schedule which includes Pirates of the Caribbean 5 and The Muppets 2.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER will pick up where “Marvel’s The Avengers” leaves off, as Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. The film stars Chris Evans in the title role and will be directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo.

And we can safely say that come 2015, The Avengers 2 and Ant-Man will also be released in 3D even though that’s not official just yet. Our question is whether or not any of them will be shot with 3D cameras, something Marvel Studios has yet to do.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, based on the Marvel comic books of the same name, features an unlikely cast of characters who must team up in order to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions. James Gunn will direct.

The Wolverine is also coming in 3D this summer, representing the first X-Men film – and first Marvel film from Fox – to release in 3D as well. Sony also embraced the format with Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and The Amazing Spider-Man last year and will continue to do so going forward.

Iron Man 3 releases May 3, 2013, Thor: The Dark World on November 8, 2013, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014The Avengers 2 on May 1, 2015 and Ant-Man on November 6, 2015.

  1. Couldn’t care less for 3D. Marvel doesn’t do Thr great a job at it. Still phyced to see Guardians of the Galaxy! The directors or Captain America: The Winter Soldier kinda have me on edge.

  2. Yeah, I only go to see a movie in 3D if there isn’t a 2D option available (like with Dredd). I just don’t see the point in it, we see in 3D anyway and really, the only movie worth watching in 3D is Life Of Pi and even then, the only standout was the bird right at the very start of the film appearing like it was in the room with you.

  3. Unless it is shot with 3d cameras… it is not worth the extra charge.

    • Ditto

  4. And that’s another movie I’ll be going out of my way to see in 2D. The only movies I’ve seen in 3D that I didn’t hate the 3D were the Hobbit and Dredd.

    • After watching the Hobbit in HFR 3D, I just can’t go back to regular 24fps 3D with all it’s juddering, so I’ll be watching these in 2D. Plus the fact that they’ll probably post-convert them to 3D doesn’t make me want to pay the premium either.

  5. Can’t wait for some Guardians and Winter Soldier. Its gonna be epic. I could absolutely care less about 3D. I see most of my movies in 2D whenever I can.

  6. 3D ? …I saw this coming

  7. this is news?? to who??? its all about the money and everyone knows that these movies were gonna be in 3D!! if you didn’t your kinda loopy anyway, MARVEL IS ABOUT 1 THING AND THAT IS THE BENJAMINS, and 3D brings in more $$$$ than 2D, so there was NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THEY WERE GONNA DO THIS! LOL ACTUALLY I ALREADY THOUGHT THEY HAD ANNOUNCED THE 3D!

  8. I’ll see it in 2D at the cinema and then buy a 3D version of the blu ray if the 3D gets good reviews. I hate sitting in a cinema wearing glasses, I like to have the option of taking them off and continuing the movie in 2D.

  9. yuck 3d, love the movies, but the 3d gives me a headache, and I already have to wear glasses, so another pair on top is really awkward, so 2d it is!

  10. Damit I hate 3D :(

  11. It’s official… but it’s always been unofficial.

    Guardians lends itself to 3d but Cap 2? I don’t know… maybe Bucky’s sniping could be pretty cool in 3d.

  12. F**k 3D! I’m sick of it!

  13. Why is it the only Marvel movie I care about this year is Captain America 2?

    • You mean next year soldier.

      • (facepalm) My bad. In that case, nothing for me from Marvel this year

  14. I hope this 3-D fad will end soon, I’m really getting tired of it.

  15. I don’t think 3D is a “fad” anymore. The point is whether you are going to actually use it a something more than a gimmick. If you shoot with 3D cameras and are a good director, you can make AMAZING things well worth the extra money. I’m thinking of Avatar, Life Of Pi, and Hugo.
