Disney+ subscribers will see smaller black bars in several scenes from 13 Marvel movies this Friday, 12 Nov.

In a collaboration with IMAX, Disney will be upgrading 13 Marvel movies to IMAX's Enhanced Aspect Ratio format on its video streaming service. The 1.90:1 IMAX Enhanced Aspect Ratio will show content closer to the 16:9 ratio of TVs, hence viewers see less of the black bars and more of certain scenes on their TV screens.

The 13 Marvel movies which are going to be certified as IMAX Enhanced are: 

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

Other IMAX Enhanced features such as DTS Surround Sound will be coming soon.

If you're wondering why this specific date, 12th November, that's when Disney will host Disney+ Day, a global celebration that will also see subscribers in Singapore being treated to new content releases across the service’s brands, Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and Star, along with a special presentation on Disney+ with sneak peeks into what’s to come.
