Hugh Jackman made it past Disney+’s censorship with this ‘X-Men’ scene
The 2014 film X-Men: Days of Future Past was recently added onto Disney+ and was left completely uncensored. Now, Hugh Jackman is commenting on one particular scene that shows his behind in full view.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is the first PG-13 film to be left completely uncensored on the family-friendly streaming service.
Since its launch, Disney+ has remained relatively conservative with its censorship. This is in efforts to keep the streaming platform family-friendly for all its viewers.
The platform made headlines after the Lizzie McGuire reboot was put on hold over beliefs that the series wouldn't be appropriate for Disney+'s target audience. As well, the Love, Simon reboot Love, Victor moved to Hulu after Disney felt the show's content wasn't age-appropriate. The censorship controversies have caused many other programs to look elsewhere for a streaming platform.
Most recently, Disney+ used CGI to cover up Daryl Hannah's behind in the 1984 film Splash which stars Tom Hanks. The latest cover-up for the PG-rated film further shows the lengths Disney+ will go to make sure it maintains its family-friendly content.
Now, X-Men: Days of Future Past has arrived on the streaming service and is completely uncensored. It is officially the first PG-13 movie to arrive uncensored on Disney+.
Along with the film's rating, it includes adult content such as the f-word and a scene which shows Jackman's naked behind in full view.
Jackman took to social media this week to share the news about the film being added to Disney+. He also includes the infamous nudity scene with an emoji covering his behind.
“Days Of Future Past becomes the first movie to air on Disney+ uncensored. That was my future but let’s be honest … it’s more like my past," Jackman says.
"Excited for them to do the same for Deadpool," Reynolds says. "It’s time children knew."
