any ideas guys if there will be a premium / wea for this or zero chance because of D+?
D+ won't make a difference, all mcu films are on D+. There's not going to be a weet premium for this because their distributor lost their disney license. You might get a FAC release, years down the line... This collectors ed is the best bet right now.

I wasn’t aware of this but the whole film was shot with the enhanced imax scenes. That version is on Disney+ and it’s the first MCU film I’ve watched in that way. Was awesome. So much more picture it’s crazy.

Now I’m going to have to go back and watch all of the films with those versions available again lol.

There will still be premium editions but not Blu-Fans anymore sadly (still gutted about Endgame...was planning on that being my only other OC to sit beside Infinity war)

Most likely the Korean, Taiwan an Czech premium retailers will do something....WWE artwork seems less likely though.

It's the distributor in China that lost Disney license and relates to Blufans releases

WeEt still doing Premium editions of MCU

Your info is off there paul, and I'm not talking about blufans. We're specifically talking weet and Dr Strange 2 here, which unless a new deal is struck, they can't release.

Smlife lost their disney distribution licence in korea after Encanto. Smlife are weet's distribution partner for MCU films, ergo weet can't release any MCU titles post 30th March.

Ultron is an old title, therefore doesn't count. The same can be said for the rest of phases 1-4, up to and including Eternals.

It'll just be Czech, filmarena. This currently can't be released in Korea, there's no active distribution licence.

I was aware the enhanced versions were on there but because I own them I don’t actually watch the MCU films on Disney+. And when I recently rewatched them again over the past 5 months I watched the 4K versions I have. So basically next time I watch them I’ll watch the D+ enhanced versions of the films available.

And what I’ll do is with new MCU films that go on there before the home release I’ll watch the D+ enhanced version first like I did with DS2 and then in 4K when the disc version arrives

So watched today on d+. Is it just me or did it look like they may have touched up the CGI on Stevens third eye. Just looked better than I remember.

Yeah, that's what I downloaded and watched as well. I guess 'IMAX Enhanced' is a new term for... open matte. Or just regular 1.85:1.

Imax is basically the full screen versions of these movies ie not cropped
I mean I don't see the point.
Used to be directors chose screen aspect ratio that best fits their vision, 2.35 for wider image, if they have sprawling views of space or nature settings, maybe a lot of characters in line, riding horses or whatever, and 1.85 for 'regular' widescreen.
If they're filming Marvel movies in 1.85, and even finishing all the special effects in that ratio, then 2.35 seems like an artificial black bars situation, only in reverse to 4:3 pan&scan. Just to add another "+" for people to join their streaming genie lamp slavery.
