When I was starting to purchase all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films before the release of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ I realized that many were yet to be made available in 4K. As I really wanted them all to be top quality, I decided to hold back on my purchases, and I’m glad I did! It sounds like the studio is currently in the process of working to offer precisely what I was looking for.
As Shuri said in ‘Black Panther’ – “Just because something works, doesn’t mean it can’t be improved.” It sounds like Marvel Studios is listening to this piece of advice and is improving their previous releases.
In a recent interview before the home release of ‘Captain Marvel‘, producers Victoria Alonso and Jonathan Schwartz were answering questions about the upcoming home release. They were asked about the lack of 4K home releases, and Alonso revealed:
“We are going to remaster all of our films in 4K. We’re in the process of doing that, so it’s all happening.”
I’m going to likely be spending far too much money on films that take place in the MCU over the next couple of years, but chances are these will be released gradually so it won’t all hit our bank accounts at once.
Tony Stark stated in the first ‘Iron Man’ that “It’s an imperfect world, but it’s the only one we got” but thankfully some of that imperfection is going to be made a little bit clearer in a stunning 4K resolution! One could guess that these will also eventually be available on Disney+.
The only downside to this announcement is there hasn’t been a release schedule made public yet. It also isn’t clear if the One-Shots will also be getting this treatment though I suspect that won’t be in the cards.
While I do plan on checking out all of the films in this format, I have to admit that I’m most excited for the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ release.
Do you plan on picking up all of the Marvel films in 4K once Disney releases them? Which movie are you most excited to see delivered in 4K? Will you be replacing some of your back catalog of films or just keep the old ones as is and buy the newer releases in a higher resolution? Share your thoughts in the comments below, True Believers!
