Several new 4K discs are reportedly in the works.
According to a report by The Digital Bits, Disney might be gearing up to release Joss Whedon's The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray to coincide with the upcoming 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release of Avengers: Infinity War. On that note, the site's sources also indicate that Infinity War is being planned for an August home video debut.
In addition, Warner Bros. is rumored to be adding The Wachowski's The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions to its 4K Blu-ray lineup later this year. The original Matrix is already scheduled to arrive on Ultra HD Blu-ray in the US on May 22, and a German release of the sequels has been announced for October 18. Meanwhile, Universal is said to be prepping Michael Cimino's The Deer Hunter for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray in July. Lastly, Sony could be bringing David Fincher's Panic Room to 4K Blu-ray later this year as well. With that said, all of the titles mentioned above have yet be confirmed by their respective studios, so they should still be considered rumors for now.
Pre-orders for the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray releases of Avengers: Infinity War and The Matrix are both now available. Specs and supplements for Infinity War have not been announced yet, but The Matrix will feature a 2160p transfer with Dolby Vision and HDR10 sourced from a new 4K remaster of the original camera negative supervised by director of photography Bill Pope. In addition, a new Dolby Atmos audio track will be included as well. Likewise, the Blu-ray disc bundled in the 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray/Digital combo pack will also feature remastered video sourced from the new 4K scan along with the Dolby Atmos mix.
