Disney+ Upgrades Marvel Movies to IMAX’s Expanded Aspect Ratio

Are you ready to experience 26% more of some of your favorite Marvel moments? If so, get ready. Because Disney+ is upgrading Marvel classics with IMAX Enhanced on Disney+. This new feature will launch on Disney+ Day, November 12. And it will bring fans literally expanded content.

According to a release from Disney+, here’s what fans can expect with IMAX Enhanced:

  • Subscribers will get more picture with IMAX’s Expanded Aspect Ratio across 13 Marvel titles – all they need to do is hit play
  • IMAX’s Expanded Aspect Ratio is 1:90:1, which offers up to 26% more picture for select sequences – meaning more of the action is visible on screen, just as the filmmakers intended
  • In the future, the collaboration will deliver even more enhanced audio and visual technology to Disney+, including immersive IMAX signature sound by DTS.

It sounds like the collaboration with IMAX is just getting started. Enhancing the small screen experience will help many people to get maximum streaming enjoyment. So it makes a lot of sense for Disney+ to add these IMAX features. And we can’t wait to watch these updated versions of the films. This is a big gift for fans. Especially for fans of characters who have finished their MCU runs. In that scenario, every new scrap of footage goes a long way… Even if that scrap equates to an extra inch of an arm.

The release further shares:

With IMAX Enhanced, IMAX and technology partner DTS will enable content that can be viewed in-home with the highest fidelity, which ensures that filmmakers’ creative intent is fully optimized for an IMAX-quality presentation. Disney+ is the first major streaming service that will elevate the at-home viewing experience with IMAX Enhanced, rewarding its subscribers with new ways to re-experience the Marvel Cinematic Universe and beyond.

13 MCU movies will be available with IMAX Enhanced on November 12. They are as follows: Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings, Iron Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, and Black Widow.

This clinches it. Time for an MCU rewatch. We can’t wait to see what we can spot on Disney+ with IMAX Enhanced.
