Deadpool Is Heading to IMAX Screens Near You
Deadpool is heading to our screens in a big way, as 20th Century Fox has just finalized a deal to bring several of their biggest upcoming blockbusters to IMAX screens. This will mark the first time that an X-Men film will play in IMAX (why? Who knows, but it seems like someone dropped the ball there), but the trend will continue with Wolverine, which will come out in 2017. 

In addition to the two X-Men tentpoles, the deal includes Independence Day: Resurgence and Maze Runner: The Death Cure. Deadpool and the Independence Day reboot weren't shot in IMAX, so with the finalization of the new deal, the footage will be remastered to fit the IMAX format. Wolverine and the Maze Runner sequel haven't begun shooting yet, so they could still shoot in the format if they so please.

It's interesting that other huge blockbusters, most notably X-Men: Apocalypse and Gambit, weren't mentioned, but the deal reportedly covers more movies, so some of these other tentpoles could have made the list. We're betting that Apocalypse, at least, will make it to IMAX screens.

Deadpool hits theaters on February 12, 2016, followed by Independence Day: Resurgence on June 24. The subsequent year will see Maze Runner: The Death Cure come out on February 17, followed by Wolverine on March 3.
