You Can Watch The Avengers While Sporting Collectible 3D Glasses

Come May 4, you’ll be able to watch Marvel’s The Avengers in all its 3D glory while wearing one of four pairs of collectible glasses that look better suited for the ski slope than the movie theater.

BadTaste has the first look at the glasses, from Disney and Real D, which will be available in most theaters for about $5 each. While Captain America, the Hulk, Iron Man and Thor are represented, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Nick Fury have been slighted.

Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man,  Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as the Incredible Hulk, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill and Stellan Skarsgård as Dr. Selvig.

    Sweet!  I collect 3-D glasses anyway, so this is right up my alley.

    If they sold Nick Fury ones with just one eye, that made the movie 2D, there’d be an audience.

    Also bummed that there’s not a chic Black Widow design for us ladies. We do make up a higher percentage of your fans than you seem to know, Marvel!

    More gimmicks from the endless gimmick machine

    which industry is more fraught with gimmicks right now, movies or comics?? I don’t know – it’s a toss up

    The Iron Man ones will probably be the most coveted one.

    No Black Widow or Hawkeye? Not gonna lie the purple frames in his current costume would be cool or a toned down version of his original Wolverine-ish mask.

    I’m not going to pay extra money just for collectible 3D glasses or 3D if I can help it.

  • Duskknight45

    So negative :P.

    I love ‘em.

  • Jacob

    They’re the only ones that look halfway decent.

  • Bast

    No Hawkeye? Boo.

    I want all 4!

  • Dzaremsky

    If they were active shutter glasses I’d buy them but I have no need for theater glasses when I got better 3D in my living room.

  • sowat

    Oh how I want the Iron Man one.

    I’m thinking too that one will be THE ONE

  • Howardallan

    God I’m sick of every movie coming out in 3D. I get a headache every time I have to wear those stupid glasses.

  • Movies4ever

    I’m buying all 4

  • DBacks Fan

    Is there a limit or for a limited time or anything like that???
