The movie which was set to premiere in cinemas this weekend will no longer be aired.

So far major cinemas are yet t comment on the removal of the movie from their schedule and so has NFVCB.

The movie which was directed by Chloé Zhao has sparked controversy globally after Arabian countries Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait also banned the movie.

The countries claim that the ban is a result of Disney failing to cut out a homosexual scene from the movie.

The controversial scene reportedly shows actors Brian Tyree Henry and Haaz Sleiman sharing a passionate kiss. This scene marks the first gay kiss in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Homosexuality is still illegal across much of the Gulf region and is even punishable by death in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
