IIRC that was forced on Joss Whedon by Disney. They seem to like the Flat format, as it translates better to home video. Apparently, Disney thinks all their customers are poor and own tube TVs.
Worked out for me, though, as Flat looks better than Scope on my IMAX Digital so "Avengers" was actually smaller than normal on the "35mm" side of the building but bigger than normal on the IMAX screen.
