Here are all 13 MCU movies getting the IMAX Enhanced upgrade on Disney Plus.

13. Ant-Man and the Wasp

The original Ant-Man uses a 1.85:1 aspect ratio, so it’s not part of the IMAX Enhanced collection, but its sequel gets the screen-filling treatment.

12. Avengers: Endgame

Fitting the epic conclusion of the Avengers storyline, Endgame was shot entirely in IMAX format, so you’ll get the whole experience with IMAX Enhanced.

11. Avengers: Infinity War

Infinity War was the first-ever Hollywood movie shot entirely in IMAX, making it a great fit for Disney Plus’ new aspect ratio.

10. Black Panther

IMAX was a big part of Black Panther’s theatrical release, with almost an hour’s worth of action scenes shot in the larger format.

9. Black Widow

Marvel’s first 2021 movie, Black Widow, features around 30 minutes of IMAX Enhanced footage.

8. Captain America: Civil War

Civil War’s 15-minute action centerpiece was shot entirely in IMAX. It’s the first movie ever to use the digital IMAX/ARRI 2D camera, where previous movies were shot on film for IMAX.

7. Captain Marvel

Brie Larson’s introduction as Captain Marvel uses IMAX Enhanced format for its biggest action scenes. Its sequel is in production, but won’t be released until 2023.

6. Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is one of the most visually inventive movies in the MCU, and its psychedelic set pieces should shine especially well in IMAX Enhanced.

5. Iron Man

Iron Man wasn’t screened in IMAX until a 2018 Marvel film festival, so the IMAX Enhanced version on Disney Plus will be the first time most fans get to see it this way.

4. Guardians of the Galaxy

With James Gunn confirming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is now shooting, the original Guardians is sure to get a lot of play in its new format.

3. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Around 40 minutes of action sequences were shot in IMAX for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

2. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi gets the IMAX Enhanced upgrade the same day it premieres on Disney Plus.

1. Thor: Ragnarok

The flashy, colorful Thor: Ragnarok is a great fit for IMAX, which lets it pack even more visual flair into the frame.
