13 MCU Movies Get IMAX Enhanced Disney+ Treatment This Month

Get your sweatpants and microwave popcorn ready because Disney+ is turning your living room into an IMAX theater! While movie theaters struggled last year, things have been looking up, especially with strong theater showings thanks to movies like Free Guy and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Despite this, a good number of us may have already gotten used to our couch being the latest place to watch movies (and TV series. And play video games.), so the Mouse House’s recent announcement that 13 MCU movies get IMAX Enhanced on Disney+ this month is pretty exciting. While an IMAX screen in a movie theater probably doesn’t compare to your television, it’ll still be a rewarding experience. Disney said that the movie image will be 26 percent taller than the widescreen format, although if your television doesn’t support this format, then you’ll probably end up with black bars on the side of the image. Still, this new format will have immersive DTS sound, which may make up for the widescreen television.

Disney is offering the IMAX Enhanced status thanks to its Disney+ Day, an annual celebration of the streaming platform’s initial release: November 12, 2019. There are usually exclusive offers, surprise moments, exclusive entertainment, and content premieres from all of the service’s marquee brands. This year, Disney+ is offering the IMAX movies plus a one-month subscription offer for $1.99. November 12 will also be the day that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be available for the first time on Disney+ in both widescreen format and the IMAX format.

The 13 MCU movies that are getting IMAX Enhanced on Disney+ are the following:

  • Ant-Man and the Wasp
  • Avengers: Infinity War
  • Avengers: Endgame
  • Black Panther
  • Black Widow
  • Captain America: Civil War
  • Captain Marvel
  • Doctor Strange
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & 2
  • Iron Man
  • Thor Ragnarok
  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

It’s unclear whether the rest of the MCU movies will also get the IMAX Enhanced treatment, but it appears that Disney+ chose fan favorites (no Thor: The Dark World in sight) and will likely see how things go.

Check out the IMAX Enhanced MCU movies on Disney+ Friday, November 12, 2021.
