Little off-topic, but it might be interesting...

As far as i know, The Avengers on Bluray is just 1080p like all other Bluray disc's.
Its all about aspect-ratios, the way movies are "filmed/made" by producers.

Most new movies are shot in a widescreen aspect-ratio of 2.35:1. To fit this on a monitor or tv without losing actual picture, they use the black bars on the top and bottom.
In this case, of The Avengers. The movie is made on a 1.78:1 ratio that does NOT use black bars. That is the reason it fills up your whole 1440p screen. (even on a 1080p source)
You will think, why don't these producers make their movies in 1.78:1 then, so we don't have these black bars any more? Well, its because movies are there to be seen in the cinema and besides that, some movies give a better watching experience on 1.78:1 than on 2:35:1 and visa versa.

Its difficult to explain, but take a look at the following article and give it a read.

No problem, hope it was informative.
I just double checked The Avengers to be 100% sure, made some screen-caps and The Avengers also is 1080p like all other Bluray disc's. (click on a screen-cap down here of The Avengers, followed by clicking on a screen-cap of Timescapes. Notice the difference in size?)





The only footage that i know off, that is filmed in 2560x1440 is the "docu" named: Timescapes.
Its absolutely stunning, truly amazing picture! and definitely worth a watch:

http://timescapes.org/

If you want the real experience, you have to buy/download the full version.
The demo's on Youtube/Vimeo or whatever don't do justice and does not even get close to the real thing.
Two random screen-caps i made of Timescapes:





I highly recommend watching this, to anyone with a 2560x1440 monitor!
