IMAX Enhanced Marvel films coming to Disney+ on November 12th

Disney has announced that 13 Marvel films will soon be able to stream in IMAX’s Expanded Aspect Ratio on Disney+.

This is part of a collaboration between Disney, IMAX and Xperi’s DTS.

“For more than a decade, IMAX has helped filmmakers take fans across the Marvel Cinematic Universe in theatres and now that epic journey crosses into a new world: the home,” said Rich Gelfond, CEO of IMAX. “IMAX, Disney, and Marvel Studios are giving the fans what they want: the most immersive viewing experience throughout the life of a Marvel Studios film, from exclusive theatrical release to the library at-home where they can now watch the Avengers assemble with more picture than ever before.”

“Disney, Marvel Studios, and IMAX have collaborated for years to bring the world’s most popular films to the big screen, and on Friday we’ll start to bring IMAX technology to subscribers with IMAX Enhanced viewing in the Disney+ app,” said Michael Paull, President of Disney+ and ESPN+. “We’re thrilled to create new value for Marvel fans and audiences on Disney+, and we’re looking forward to offering even more IMAX Enhanced functionality in the future.”

The IMAX Expanded Aspect Ratio will bring up to 26% more picture for select scenes. For films, like Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, the entire films will be presented in the new aspect ratio, since they were filmed completely with IMAX cameras.

Disney+ subscribers will be able to stream Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings as well as Iron ManGuardians of the GalaxyGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2Captain America: Civil WarDoctor StrangeThor: RagnarokBlack PantherAvengers: Infinity WarAnt-Man and The WaspCaptain MarvelAvengers: Endgame, and Black Widow in the IMAX’s Expanded Aspect Ratio is 1:90:1 on November 12th (aka Disney+ day).
