IMAX has released the official Justice League #2 trailer on their YouTube channel with word that the movie will be released in 2D:

The YouTube description states: 

The IMAX release of Justice League will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX 2D Experience.

However, the link provided to the IMAX website states 3D:

The IMAX release of Justice League will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images, coupled with IMAX's customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

It's possible it could be a simple mix-up by whoever posted the trailer, or maybe not. 

Update: IMAX has changed both the listings on their YouTube channel and website to read:

Original article follows:

Just last month saw IMAX state that they would be moving away from IMAX 3D releases as ticket buyers would rather watch an IMAX 2D movie, such as with Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk.

IMAX was reportedly disappointed with recent earnings, citing 3D as the reason, and 3D sales were down last year by 8%.

We'll try to clear up the matter and contact IMAX.

Watch the Justice League IMAX trailer below.

"Justice League" has a November 17, 2017 release directed by Zack Snyder starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon and Willem Dafoe an Atlantean, Nuidis Vulko.

Synopsis:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
