Special Edition THE AVENGERS 3D Glasses to Be Offered at Participating Theaters

     January 30, 2012

As audiences continue to be wary of the ever-increasing amount of 3D movies thrown their way, studios and exhibitors are looking for new reasons their films must be seen in the third dimension. Lucasfilm and AMC Theaters are offering podracer 3D glasses for Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, and now Marvel is hopping onboard the personalized specs train. The studio will be offering special edition 3D glasses at participating theaters for the upcoming release of The Avengers. You can choose to rock Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, or Captain America specialized glasses while oogling the all-star superhero movie. The glasses will cost an extra $5 in ticket price, but you’ll be able to sport your super cool specs at many 3D movies to come. Presumably they’re a little more durable than the typical Real D glasses, making them fashionable and necessary.

Hit the jump to check out the glasses. Directed by Joss Whedon, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson. The Avengers opens May 4th.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Avengers:

Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”–the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble in summer 2012. In “Marvel’s The Avengers,” superheroes team up to pull the world back from the brink of disaster when an unexpected enemy threatens global security.

    Anyone else notice the small snapshot of Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk ? That’s the best live action look at his face we have gotten since the teaser trailer.

  • MatthewM

    Well, they all look cool and admit to being partial to the HULK look. Sort of reminds me of TNT!

  • Rukia

    Courtesy of bad taste is right.

  • Zack

    why not a Nick Fury Pair?

    • Justin

      Because a pair of 3D glasses with an eyepatch would make the glasses useless.

      Frankly, I’m more wondering why they don’t have a Hawkeye pair. Most modern renditions of Hawkeye have him wearing some pair of sunglasses to protect his eyes, and I’m pretty sure he’s wearing a pair in the avengers too.

      • Zack

        yea I was being sarcastic about the nick fury pair haha. and I thought the same thing about hawkeye too. probably figured people would pass on him for the more central characters

  • C’mon Son

    @ Zack….the reason why they don’t have a Nick Fury pair is the fact that you would only be able to see out of one eye.

  • Zack

    I understand why a nick fury pair would not work. I figured the the sarcasm was self explanatory hahah

  • Adam

    WHAT ARE THE PARTICIPATING THEATRES??? I live in Ireland and if they don’t have them here I will cry D’: where online can I get some?

  • Jim

    Funny thing, I took my kids to Regal and found no glasses were ever available there. Taking wife to United States premier Luxury theater Cinetopia which happens to be located where I live. Called ahead to inquire about glasses and you guessed it -no,nada,don’t have em,never did. WTF?
