While many were very happy, there were some that were in for a surprise when they found out that their movie will have Chinese subtitles encoded into the film. Many movie goers have responded in outrage and demanded that their tickets be refunded so they can find another cinema that will accommodate them – without Chinese subtitles.

Megaworld hits backlash

One of the malls that offer Chinese subtitles is Megaworld Lifestyle Malls who announced that a lot of their cinemas will have these.

Many people of course complained and the establishment took to Facebook to air out their response on the matter.

"As stated in the announcement and indicated in our website, only select cinemas and screenings will have Chinese subtitles. This does not automatically apply to all screenings including those wherein tickets were purchased in advance. We also ensure that customers are properly informed if the screenings they chose will have Chinese subtitles prior to their purchase," the mall operator said.

This did not sit well with many Filipinos. Megaworld also said that they wanted to have Chinese subtitles because  they wanted to accommodate the many Chinese nationals that will be watching the film and that it was demanded by the market, they just simply responded to the demand.

Many Filipinos did not agree with this and said that it was wrong because Avengers is a western film shown in Filipino soil. So if there is a language it can be translated to, it should be Filipino.

Many people have also commented about how it felt like the Chinese were invading the Philippines and having their nationalism marked upon the nation.
