Next summer’s Man Of Steel will be released in 3D, RadioTimes.com can confirm.
It had long been rumoured that Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman reboot would be converted to 3D before its release in cinemas, but Warner Bros. made the decision public yesterday.
Starring British actor Henry Cavill (pictured), Man Of Steel is a gritty re-imagining of the Superman story and will become the sixth major film based on the DC comics character.
The movie boasts an A-list cast including Academy Award nominees Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Michael Shannon alongside iconic Oscar-winners in the form of Kevin Costner and Russell Crowe. Man Of Steel also counts Christopher Nolan, who reinvigorated the Batman franchise with his box office busting Dark Knight trilogy, amongst its creative team.
“The film is going to be a visually exciting experience in all formats: 2D, 3D and IMAX,” said Snyder, who’s no stranger to comic book adaptations after helming 300 and Watchmen. “Anticipating how audiences today embrace 3D, we designed and photographed the movie in a way that would allow ‘Man of Steel’ to captivate those movie goers, while respecting fans who prefer a more traditional cinematic experience. We’ve taken great measures to ensure the film and the story come first, and 3D is meant as an enhancement.”
Man Of Steel is set for UK cinemas on June 14th, 2013.
