- Captain Marvel producers confirm every MCU movie will be released in 4K.
- So far only 13 of the 22 movies are available in 4K.
- The next ones to earn the 4K treatment are the three Iron Man movies and the first two Thor movies later this summer.
Nowadays, it's not unsual to assume new movie releases are available in 4K. Among those would be the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, but that's not entirely the case. Not every movie in the MCU catalog is available in 4K, or at least not yet.
In a recent interview with Collider, Captain Marvel producers Victoria Alonso and Jonathan Schwartz confirmed that Marvel will fix that by releasing every MCU movie in 4K.
"We are going to remaster all of our films in 4K," said Alonso. "We're in the process of doing that, so it's all happening."
Currently, only 13 of the 22 MCU movies are available in 4K. Almost every recent movie is available, but other titles like Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man and Doctor Strange are missing from the list. Here's every MCU movie that is available in 4K.
- Ant-Man and the Wasp
- The Avengers
- Avengers: Age of Ultron
- Avengers: Infinity War
- Black Panther
- Captain America: The First Avenger
- Captain America: The Winter Soldier
- Captain America: Civil War
- Captain Marvel
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
- The Incredible Hulk
- Spider-Man: Homecoming
- Thor: Ragnarok
We should note that Avengers: Endgame is not available for purchase yet, but once it is later this year, it will be available in 4K.
Some of the most egregious movies missing from the 4K line-up are the Iron Man movies, which are among the most popular in the MCU. But don't fret, because all three Iron Man movies and the first two Thor movies will get the 4K treatment this summer.
