Zack Snyder’s upcoming reboot of the Superman movie franchise will offer audiences all the three-dimensional, eye-popping visuals a modern theater can provide, according to an announcement today by Warner Bros.
In an official update on the project, WB and Snyder indicated that Man Of Steel will be shown in 3D, IMAX, and standard 2D formats when it hits theaters June 14, 2013.
“The film is going to be a visually exciting experience in all formats: 2D, 3D and IMAX,” said Snyder in a press release about the project. “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.”
It’s been a while since we got our first look at Henry Cavill as the new Superman, and since then we’ve learned that he’ll be joined in the film by an all-star cast that includes Amy Adams (The Fighter) as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon (Take Shelter) as General Zod, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Russell Crowe as Jor-El, and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White. The film is being produced by The Dark Knight Rises director Christopher Nolan and is based on a story by Nolan and David S. Goyer.
