An all IMAX movie?

Recently films either partially filmed with Imax cameras, or blown-up for Imax screens have become very popular. Now IGN movies is reporting that cinematographer Wally Pfister, who worked on all of Christopher Nolan's films, including The Dark Knight is interested in filming the next Batman movie completely with Imax cameras. Would you like a movie filmed entirely with Imax cameras? While I think some things would probably be quite interesting and possibly quite amazing, I just wonder what would happen to the film when it is shown on traditional movie screens, and then of course, on Blu-ray and DVD? The thing I find most amusing about Imax is that its aspect ratio is very close to traditional 1.33:1 television screens, and yet, there has been a huge push for consumers to adopt widescreen televisions, which has been quite successful. But if Imax movies (filmed with Imax cameras in the standard Imax aspect ratio) become very successful, what happens to the films when they are shown on standard movie screens and on DVD and Blu-ray?
