As per the company blog, “Since 2010, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has earned well over $1.6 billion across IMAX screens globally, making it the highest-grossing franchise in IMAX history. Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame were the first films shot entirely with IMAX digital cameras, and all titles available on November 12th feature select sequences in IMAX’s Expanded Aspect Ratio.”
Notably, users can still choose to watch these movies in the standard widescreen format if they want. Disney+ has announced that it will expand this feature to further Marvel Cinematic Universe movies in the near future.
