'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Confirms 3D, Could 48 FPS Be Next?

While The Hobbit arrives in theaters this weekend, we'll have to wait and see how movie audiences react to the new 48 fps high-frame rate screenings. Meanwhile, it appears as though the format may be getting the Marvel touch in 2014.

Fox announced that X-Men: Days of Future Past will be released in 3D, though it's not clear if they will shoot in 3D or post-convert. The studio also recently confirmed that The Wolverine will be post-converted into 3D.

Director Bryan Singer recently tweeted that he experienced "serious frame rate envy" after a screening of The Hobbit. If the limited screens projecting The Hobbit in high-frame rate perform well, expect to see Fox try to use the format on some of their upcoming tentpole projects.

The high-frame rate format has pretty much garnered unfavorable opinions by turning the image projected on screen into that of a dreamy daytime soap opera. There's still two years before X-Men: Days of Future Past arrives on screen, leaving plenty of time to improve the technology.

While 3D was pretty much a given, would you be interested in seeing X-Men in high-frame rate?

X-Men: Days of Future Past opens July 18, 2014.
