No 3D for Iron Man 2, maybe IMAX?

December 22, 2009 – 12:21 pm

Screen Rant reports a 3D conversion for Iron Man 2 may be shelved, but no word yet on whether an IMAX conversion is in the works.

It was reported back in September of 2008 that Iron Man 2 was planned to be in 3D IMAX. Our own Vic Holtreman was pretty psyched about the idea, but unfortunately it didn’t work out as planned (director Jon Favreau cited budget issues as one of the reasons), and instead Iron Man 3 is being planned for the 3D IMAX experience.

However, just this September word of Iron Man 2 being in 3D surfaced again (from AICN). This time the report stated that Iron Man 2 was being converted to 3D, since it wasn’t originally filmed for it. The reason for Marvel pricking their ears up to the notion of Iron Man 2 (and Iron Man 1) being in 3D was that a one-minute clip was converted into three-dimensions and was apparently so impressive the studio looked around at three separate companies who specialize in 3D conversion.

But those who were psyching themselves up for seeing the Iron Man sequel pop out of the screen will have to hold on for the third installment, as news has recently surfaced from 3D fanatic site Market Saw, which trumps the Iron Man 2 3D rumors. Market Saw say they have it from, “a very good source (one very much in the know),” that Iron Man 2 will NOT be in 3D as previously reported.
