With VR an up-and-coming storytelling medium, all the big studios want in on the action. Gone are the days of 4-D pirate adventures with seats that spit water into your face. The people don’t want to be in the movie anymore, they want to be the movie. The latest studio to get into the biz is Warner Bros., inking a deal with IMAX’s new VR component for virtual reality experiences based around the Justice League.
There are still a moon’s worth of details to sort out on Marvel’s The Inhumans TV series before a 2017 premiere, but IMAX may be looking to lock down a schedule early. Not only does the theater company have a projected date and runtime for the new series, we may also know its official ABC premiere date.
Avengers: Infinity War, the two-part conclusion to the current Marvel Cinematic Universe, promises to be one of the biggest movie experiences in recent memory. And to make it even bigger, Marvel and Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo have announced that both installments of the finale will be shot entirely in IMAX, a first for a Hollywood feature film.
