The studio is prepping its entire catalog of movies for 4K release.
While Disney and Marvel have been releasing all of their new MCU films on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray since the debut of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, several earlier movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have yet to make their way to 4K. Thankfully, it looks like that's about to change.
During an interview with Collider, Captain Marvel executive producers Victoria Alonso and Jonathan Schwartz elaborated on Marvel's larger 4K home video plans, confirming that more Ultra HD releases are on the way. In fact, it turns out that the studio's entire back catalog is set to receive the 4K treatment.
When asked about the prospect of more Ultra HD home video releases, Victoria Alonso told Collider's Steve Weintraub, "We are going to remaster all of our films in 4K. We're in the process of doing that, so it's all happening."

Beyond 4K news, Alonso and Schwartz were also asked about the potential of a new Phase 3 movie collection or a massive 22-film Infinity Saga box set, and though the pair don't appear to be aware of anything specific, they seem to think both are good ideas. Likewise, despite the upcoming arrival of Disney+, which will serve as the streaming home for the entire MCU, Alonso doesn't think that the digital service will impact plans to release physical media versions of the studio's future movies.
Exact release dates for additional Marvel 4K films have not been announced yet, but the upcoming titles will join the company's currently available collection of 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays, including Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Solider, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Captain Marvel.
