No post-conversion for Marvel’s The Avengers. Showbiz 411 is reporting that director Joss Whedon will shoot The Avengers in native 3D. Marvel had hinted at the film being released in 3D in the past, and a 3D shoot makes sense given its shoot schedule.
The studios’ Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger will also be released in 3D, but those films were shot in 2D so they will have to be converted in post (minus the 3D effects which will be done in 3D from the start).
The Avengers is scheduled to hit theaters on May 4, 2012.
