I would love to watch it on 3D but it should be done in a balanced way. I prefer they focus more on delivering an epic film with a great story than focus too much on making it 3D. If all of that can be done, I'm all for it.

why does noone complain that a studio and director should not focus so much on lighting in movies and mroe on the story? why does noone complain that they should not focus so much on the sets and the story? its not like they would spend 80% time on the 3D only.

HELL YEAH. I agree with Daybreak. If it fits the movie, HELL YES. Seeing Krypton in 3d would be ****ing awesome. And flying with Superman too. Imagine a great aerial battle in 3d. That would be sweet.

Totally there is some great scenes that would look stellar in 3D. But the whole film doesnt need to be 3D in my opinion. At maybe maybe 3-5 scenes like they have done with harry potter films or how some other films have done 3d in the past.

from now on every movie that will be 3D will be from the beginning to the end.

Well i doubt that, some may only want to do it for select scenes were others like avatar could be full on 3d. But its still a very expensive process to have a full on 3d film for 2hr+ so i doubt it will be a thing we see it alot of films.

dark_b is right. After the success of Avatar as well as upcoming flicks like Alice In WOnderland, Toy Story 3 and Tron Legacy , it would be a dumb move for studios not to go full 3d.
Theaters ( and possibly) moviegoers would complain about paying full price for seeing select sequences in 3d.

It was a expensive process to full convert scenes in 3d and that is why alot of studios were waiting to for the prices to drop AND to see how avatar would perform. No doubt that Avatar showed them the potential of 3d movies but the biggest hurdle was the price. With the reports that a korean movie could convert movies from 2d-to-3d with the same quality and lower price , it suddenly became possible to warrant such an invesment.

Take the Potter movies for example. While many of them have been released in IMAX , their biggest success comes from 2d screens. The last movies made over 900 million WW. With more and more screens being converted to 3d , WB would gladly spend 15 million extra to convert them to full 3d features. Hell that 15 million will ensure that the last 2 potter movies will go beyond 1 billion WW ...each.

well those films were already scheduled to be in 3d prior to avatar's release and big sucess. I am sure yes there is going to be films that are 3d. But thats all up to the studio, the director, and the type of film it is. As for being whole film in 3d or just select scenes that is also up to the film makers. I am sure its going to happen but its probably going to be a few yrs down the road seeing tons and tons of films in full 3d. Plus there is still going to be alot of films in 2d. since not every film needs to be 3d.

Not every film needs to be in 3D or should be in 3D but I think Superman is going to be made in 3D. WB is aiming for it to be a big event movie, and it has to compete with all the other event movies now coming out in 3D. They should be willing to invest a lot of money into it.

As for whether it should be only partially in 3D or fully, if they're aiming to make an epic film, with scenes of Krypton, space, the Fortress of Solitude, Metropolis and Superman flying etc. etc. then that's more than enough to take advantage of 3D and use it for the entire movie.

Superman being in 2D would be a missed oppurtunity..
Your basic cinema going kid has a choice one rainy Saturday afternon..
Watch Superman 2D or watch Iron Man 3 in 3D.. 3D wins every time..
Even if by 2013 (or whenever) 3D has become the norm and every action film is made in 3D going the 2D route will just come across as Superman being made on the cheap.
Not mention the visual spectical of an exploding Krypton in 3D .. Now who among us would want to miss that?

Personally, no, I dont think the next Superman movie should be in 3D, Avatar was great, but Hollywood needs to learn not EVERY movie needs to be in 3D, it will get boring very quickly.

IMO
I think the worry here is if 3D takes precedence over the story - that the director will only think about piecing together set pieces/sequences because they will look good in 3D. Love of visuals and action over the story is a concern time and time again. Like CGI, there can be overkill. Or a director can be hired who has strength in one field but not the other.

If they hire a filmmaker who knows what they are doing in both the storytelling aspect as well as the technical then that shouldn't be a problem. But hiring a director who will give nothing but effect (say like Batman and Robin) is increased with the sudden trend of 3D. The same thing happened with CGI- they can be so enamoured with the look of CG that they focus a lot on that, to the detriment of the story.

I'd be for it if the filmmakers understand that it is part of the story, not the whole thing. Empty spectacle is a concern. They have to know how to use it.

Also, since the audience has to wear glasses, this may make filmmakers/studios hate the idea of "talky" scenes, of focusing on drama, because they may think audiences want to go right on to the action.

After Avatar, for good or not, many if not most major effects movies will be 3D. I'm surprised Marvel isn't going 3D as well.

Well it shouldn't have to be a bad thing IMO.
They could easily shoot the movie in 3-d

It has already been announced that all future DC Comics films will now be in 3D (the Superman Reboot included). I for one, can't imagine anyone having a complaint about a Superman film in 3D. All of the flying scenes and speed scenes would be absolutely epic in 3D.

Don't get me wrong. I would love to see this film on 3-D. What I meant was that the producers/director should focus more on a good epic story than just film Superman in 3-D just for the fx's only. Both the visual aspect and the story aspect of the film should be top notch. I wouldn't like to see the 3-D misused just to get a cheap thrill/reaction, for example, the famous "long stick" sticking out of the screen, the "water squirt", etc. The 3-D feature and other fx's should complement the story.

saw the news of alan horn saying all dc films from 2011 and on and tentpole films will be in 3d. I said in other threads i dont mind 3d much myself. as long as it looks good and is used in the right way. But i dont need to see every type of film in 3d. Though where i live got multiple theaters and they offer both 3d and 2d version of films. So for me it will just be a matter of what i am interested in viewing and if i have the money for 3d. in my area standard 2d films are aroudn 9$ and 3d films around 13$ so not much of a difference.

If it were to be shot in 3D, I'd feel less hesitant about it. However, SlashFilm's assessment of the "Titans" 3D footage made me completely lose interest in seeing that movie in 3D. I didn't feel like "Alice" benefited much from the conversion, and it sounds like "Titans" didn't either. If they invest the money in making the effect less of an afterthought and actually a part of the process from the beginning, then, sure, I'll look forward to seeing Superman fly in 3D.
