How in the heck does 3D conversion even factor into the aspect ratio of the IMAX scenes?

They just never convert at full frame rate, except for IMAX docos. Take Star Trek Into Darkness for example.

That was because they wanted to bridge the differences in aspect ratios in order to keep the experience from being too jarring. 3D conversion had nothing to do with Into Darkness' 1.66:1 aspect ratio.

My reaction when I found out they'll be using IMAX cameras to shoot some scenes:

Christian Bale Talks Ben Affleck As BATMAN And Whether He Contemplated A Return
Quote:
"I just stopped and stared into nothing for half an hour..." The Dark Knight Trilogy's Christian Bale talks here about learning that Ben Affleck had been cast as the Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and reveals whether he ever considered reprising the role!

Despite the voice, Christian Bale is widely considered to be the best big screen Batman to date, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Ben Affleck has a lot to live up to after the British actor's superb take on the iconic DC Comics superhero in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy. Talking about his upcoming movie with Sir Ridley Scott (Exodus: Gods and Kings) in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, Bale was asked to compare the role of Moses to Batman. "It's a little embarrassing to compare Moses to Batman," Bale laughed. "There are similarities, you know, tragic beginning and then a heroic future. But Moses is a little more violent. I'm sure if there'd been guns around at that time, Bruce Wayne might have had a chance."

As for how he felt to learn that Gone Girl's Ben Affleck had been cast as the superhero in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel follow-up, it sounds as if he was as shocked as the rest of us! "I've got to admit initially, even though I felt that it was the right time to stop, there was always a bit of me going, 'Oh go on... Let's do another.' So when I heard there was someone else doing it, there was a moment where I just stopped and stared into nothing for half an hour." It's not clear whether the offer was ever there to return in Batman v Superman or if he's referring to another movie with Nolan, especially as there were always rumours that Bale was being looked at to reprise the role (despite the continuity headaches that would have caused). "But I'm 40," he adds. "The fact that I'm jealous of someone else playing Batman...I think I should have gotten over it by now. I haven't spoken with Ben, but I emailed him offering bits of advice that I learned the hard way. I would imagine he is doing everything he can to avoid anything that I did." Thoughts?
