LOS ANGELES, California –
Studios often test films with audiences before they are officially released, and apparently, Disney is wishing they did that
after ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ received a myriad of complaints over the film’s content and shocking ending.
“Everyone knows that it is with major regret that we have to inform everyone that we are pulling the film from theatres by the very end of this week,” said Disney spokesperson Margaret Lambert. “Protests over the film’s content has been a cause for everyone’s concern, and we are in the process of deciding how it should be handled. In the interim, we have decided to pull releases from across the country.”
Yesterday Disney releases a statement stating that over 2 million letters and emails have come into the studio headquarters, one thousand or so even demanding refunds over the graphic content near the end of the film.
“Now, we go to see all these Marvel movies together, but I never expected anything like this,” said Michelle Willard, who excitedly brought her 9-year-old son to see the film on Friday. “My son saw what was happening on screen, and his jaw dropped, and he began crying,” “He has been inconsolable ever since. I cannot get him to stop crying and shaking. The ending is too much for children, and likely, even some adults.”
Even though the movie brought in nearly $700 million dollars worldwide, breaking nearly every record, Lambert says the studio has no qualms about pulling the movie for a while, and deciding what their next move is.
