Disney+ strays further from its family-friendly image with the addition of “Deadpool”, “Deadpool 2” and “Logan” arriving on the streaming service today, July 22. In addition to Disney’s announcement yesterday, the company invited users to revisit their parental controls because of the sexual and violent nature of these films.

While the movies were previously available on Disney+ outside of the US, these three titles are sure to upset parents in the US who have subscribed to the family-friendly service so that their kids can enjoy, well, family-friendly content.

“Deadpool” is arguably the most sexually inappropriate movie in the Marvel Cinema Universe, rated R for foul language, violence, sexual content, and graphic nudity. “Deadpool 2” contains violence, strong language and “short drug material”. So you can expect a plethora of f-bombs and inappropriate jokes. For example, when Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) had baby-sized phalanges, he said, “I bet it feels huge in this hand.”

Meanwhile, “Logan” has brief nudity and the typical brutal violence that Wolverine brings.

The highly R-rated superhero movies join the TV-MA-rated series ‘Daredevil’, ‘Jessica Jones’, ‘Luke Cage’, ‘Iron Fist, ‘The Punisher’ and ‘The Defenders’, which are out in March. That same month, Disney+ updated its parental controls to welcome more mature titles without upsetting too many parents.

There was a false alarm in April when it was suspected that Disney+ would get its first R-rated movie, “Kiss of the Dragon”, after it was added by accident to his sizzle reel on YouTube. “Kiss of the Dragon” was intended for Disney+ Canada.

Also, the adult-oriented movies “Hot Shots” and “Hot Shots: Part Deux” were removed from the platform just a few days after Disney+ added them.

Disney’s Star brand in Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and other markets has mature titles such as ‘Alien’, ‘Terminator’, ‘Die Hard’, ‘Kingsman’, ‘Atlanta’ and more, which the company announced in 2020.

To celebrate the arrival of “Deadpool” and “Deadpool 2” on Disney+, fans at San Diego Comic-Con can get a free mini chimichanga, available at Seaport Village on July 22 and 23.

“Deadpool 3” is currently in pre-production.
