Official: Captain America and Thor in 3D: Good or Bad Idea?

Well, it certainly wasn't all that surprising but Marvel has announced that both Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor will be converted to 3-D towards their upcoming releases in 2011.

Seeing that most converted 3-D movies have a very terrible spotty track record is that truly a good idea? the movies are filmed in 2-D and not in stereoscopic 3-D and it can make for some bad 3-D indeed (yes, I'm talking about you *cough* Clash of the Titans *cough*).

Thor director, Kenneth Branagh, said that: ''We came to feel that in our case 3-D could be the very good friend of story and character for a different kind of experience.'' Though he does admit that he was very skeptical at first.

Captain America helmer Joe Johnston, who will be at Comic-Con, said that:  "A lot of people are using 3-D now because they feel have they have to ... that will come and go and the pictures that deserve to be in 3-D will continue to be. When it's done bad, it can make you carsick."

However, Johnston is a believer in the conversion method if it's done right, saying that "It's a new challenge and it's exciting."

A case for 3-D will be made to the fans of San Diego Comic-Con next week when Marvel will hold it's Captain America and Thor panel in Hall H on July 24th. 

will be the first Marvel movie to come out in 3-D on May 6th 2011, while Captain America comes out July 22th 2011.

What do you guys think of Marvel's decision to convert the movies in 3-D? Good or bad idea?
