Will Transformers 3 be 3D?

It's no surprise that Tranformers 3 got the "go ahead." It made a lot of money, and many people seemed to love it. According to Deadline Hollywood, Shia LaBeouf is already to start filming in May of this year for a 2011 release. However, one interesting this that JoBlo wrote about is the question will Tranformers 3 be Transformers 3D? 

 Bay has previously dismissed the format as a "gimmick" (as opposed to movies about toys from the 1980s), but his exec producer Steven Spielberg was dazzled by AVATAR, and nobody can argue with the receipts from that movie.

In the next couple of months, we may here of some debate between Bay and Spielberg over this. 
 
Here's the thing: Whether you hated it or loved it, Transformers 2 brought in a but load of money, and it was a fun summer blockbuster. Now, I still have yet to see Avatar, but I did see Up! in 3D. Up! handled 3D very well, giving the movie more depth than anything else. It wasn't as much about the gimmicky, "oh man, it's coming at you!" 3D which we saw with the recent Final Destination and My Bloody Valentine. I've heard Avatar handled 3D in the same way as Up. 
 
If Transformers were filmed in 3D, it could be a great thing. Bay's fight scenes can become a little confusing. There's so much CGI being thrown around, and it becomes hard for your brain to process what's happening because the CGI characters kind of blend in to the background. With the current 3D technology, it would help separate the autobots and deceptacons from the background. 
 
3D used to be a gimmicky thing (think Jaws 3D), but the technology has gotten so much better where you don't need to have things pop out at the audience, breaking the 4th wall, to portray 3D. I can't wait to see how this pans out, and I hope they make a 3D film.
 
What do you guys think? Could Transformers 3D be a good thing or the worst decision ever?

I don't care for 3D. I saw Avatar in 3D, and the glasses desaturated the colors pretty noticeably. I thought this very odd for a film with such a vibrant pallet. I had trouble distinguishing between different Transformers in 2D. I don't think I could even stand to watch it in 3D.

Could you imagine the nasty money shot.  I can see Inferiorego right now walking out of the theater thinking he has boococky on his sweater and trying to wipe it off.

Transformers was bad. 
 
Revenge of the Fallen was horrible. 
 
Transformers 3 will be a travesty. 
 
In 3D will make me want to tear my eyes out. 

 Four wrongs don't make a right.  
 
Michael Bay raped my childhood.

I was just about to say I have no interest in 3D and wish people would stop thinking it's a cool idea...now I have changed my mind, I hope this trend crosses over too! :D

Hey, as long as they take the robots seriously this time, I'm cool. I saw revenge of the fallen just a couple of weeks ago, and I couldn't believe how much potential awesomeness was lost because the robots were used as comic relief. I think Optimus Prime was the only awesome character in the whole movie, and he dead for most of it.

I'm not sure what kind of "Adult Entertainment" you might be into... but when I think about what might be coming right at me... I shudder. 
 
Course... if you're into that... more power to you.

Why is everyone so up for making movies in 3D. It's a ridiculous idea and most movies put through the transformation just seem odd.

haha, well I wasn't saying I specifically would watch it (though it sounds hilarious) but I think we learned with the popularity of that 2 Girls, 1 Cup thing...America will definitely indulge in watching anything as long as it has the word porn attached

I want to, but coming across 3 spare hours for a film is a little tough right now.

A 3-D Tranformers film could look pretty damn cool.
