Early this week, fans spotted scenes depicting gore in Falcon and the Winter Soldier that were altered for general audiences. This stealthy alteration understandably irked portions of the fandom for Disney’s insistence on watering down the violence in the MCU, given how Disney+ recently introduced a parental control system.
However, according to insider Ryan Parker, these alterations were not intended to be published in the Disney+ library. Parker’s sources cited technical troubles and that the scenes were being retracted as soon as possible.
Regardless of whether the publication was accidental or not, that scenes are retroactively being changed by Disney clearly means that the company is investing resources in censoring certain content within its original catalog. However, this could also mean that Disney is looking into offering both censored and uncensored versions of their shows. Whatever the case is, this is something people need to keep an eye out for.
