No Captain Marvel For Pakistani Cinemas!

For two weeks, fans of the Marvel’s Avengers franchise were waiting for the release of Captain Marvel, the film that tells you what happens next after Thanos destroys half of the world’s superheroes in Avengers: Infinity War. However, there was no release in sight for the Hollywood Blockbuster in Pakistan, and today, Cinepax Cinemas confirmed that the film will not be releasing in Pakistan.

Their Facebook post explained the matter in simple words:

Hey fans! We truly admire your anticipation for watching Captain Marvel in your nearest Cinepax cinemas. We realize the wait must have made you wonder if it was merely a delay in the release date or else. We are sad to announce that the Disney’s regional office didn’t give Pakistan the rights to run Captain Marvel. Hence, Captain Marvel is not releasing in Pakistan.

The film was released worldwide on 8th March 2019 but it was first deferred in Pakistan to 15th March 2019 and now with the release date approaching, it was announced that it will not be releasing in Pakistan at all.
Are the distributors of Disney Films in Pakistan – Eveready Films – behind this delay or is the game even more sinister than it seems, we might never know. However, by not releasing the film in Pakistan, Disney India has allegedly weakened its case as sole distributors of Disney films in the region, if it has something to do with the current Indo – Pak situation. If the matter isn’t resolved quickly, then cinegoers in Pakistan might be deprived of upcoming flicks such as Avengers: Endgame, Dumbo, Aladdin, The Lion King and Frozen 2.
