It's no secret that the whole 3D-thing didn't revolutionise the cinema-going experience—the second time around. But was it really because of expensive ticket prices, crappy 3D conversions, or more convenient home streaming options? Maybe. Or maybe it was because cinema-goers didn't have their choice of Avengers-themed 3D glasses.
Marvel teamed up with Real3D to produce this series of seven different Avengers-themed glasses that can each be purchased for £4 and worn during 3D showings of the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron sequel. The characters represented include Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, and Ultron. But Hawkeye was left out because no one really cares about a dude with a bow and arrow when there's a guy flying around in a robotic supersuit. [Comic Book Resources via Technabob]
