Will Marvel Ever Shoot A Film In IMAX?

IMAX president Greg Foster hopes so.

Many of Hollywood’s biggest franchises — like “The Hunger Games,” “Transformers” and “Star Wars,” to name a few — have followed the example set by Christopher Nolan in “The Dark Knight” and filmed sequences in IMAX.

So why hasn’t Marvel Studios?

The home of Captain America and Iron Man has never shot with IMAX cameras, which would allow the film to fill the entire screen, despite just signing a formal partnership to present each of its movies in the large format through conversion. The partnership has, however, created other opportunities for both companies.

IMAX president Greg Foster explained over the phone that this agreement has completely changed the way the two companies work together.

“Instead of doing Marvel movies on a one-off basis, we’re now a part of that universe if you will,” he said. “It means that when we have meetings with Marvel, we’re not simply looking for the next movie. There’s a long-term point of view. This was the first movie that had that.”
