Everything You Wrote Is Right But The Thing That “majority of the paying consumers want to watch them in thier original form” is what I Personally Don’t Think Is Right.Think That If All The Marvel Movies Have Not Been Released In India In Languages Like Hindi,Tamil, Telugu & Would Have Released In English Only Then Would Have They Been This Much Pan-India Famous.Would Avengers : Endgame Had Been Able To Collect Nearly 400 Crores At Indian Box-Office If Only Being Released In English.
