Captain Marvel Won't Be Shown in Pakistan Amid Tensions with India

Disney's regional offices are based in India and they are blocking Pakistan from releasing Captain Marvel. According to sources, Eveready Pictures, who distribute Disney projects in Pakistan, have not been able to come to an agreement to secure the rights to the Carol Danvers standalone movie. To date, the movie has made over $541 million globally and it would be a nice boost at the Pakistani box office to have access to the latest project from the Marvel Cinematic Universe in theaters.

As for a reason behind the stalled negotiations, a source close to the matter alleges, "Disney India has simply refused to sell the distribution rights to the movie." Exhibitors in Pakistan are now worried that this will happen with future Disney releases, including Avengers: Endgame, Dumbo, Aladdin, Star Wars 9, and The Lion King, along with many more. Shan Lashari, the owner of Sozo World Cinema had this to say about the situation.
