"It's not going to be in 3-D," Snyder told MTV News. "I wanted it to be in 3-D, and we talked a lot about it, and then we looked at a lot of tests. We looked at a lot of potential vendors that could turn the movie into 3-D, and in the end I just felt like it wasn't conceived in 3-D like "Guardians" — because I have made a movie, "Legend of the Guardians," which is conceived in 3-D, and it's cool in 3-D."
Snyder would rather not do 3-D at all than covert an entirely 2-D film to the format, though he might go back and do things differently from the beginning if he had the chance.
"Maybe the problem was because I'd been working on that for two years, by the time now we rolled around and made it — early on we were like, 'Oh we can just do a conversion. It's no big deal,' and now I'm broken for 3-D," he explained. "It's like I've been loved by 3-D. It's like you can't go back."
