Disney+ Dials Down Blood & Violence in One ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ Episode

As Disney+ prepares to become the home of the TV-MA series of Marvel shows formerly home on Netflix including “The Defenders”, “Jessica Jones”, and “Daredevil”, among others, the service appears to be dialing back the violence a bit in one of their homegrown Marvel series as well. An eagle-eyed Reddit user has spotted a reduction in blood and violence in one episode of last year’s “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”.

Both of these examples come from the third episode. First, when one Hydra scientist is killed, the original version showed blood spattered on the floor and around his shirt, with his open eyes confirming his death. Now it appears he’s only knocked out, with no blood and his eyes closed.

Second comes from a goon later in the episode whom Bucky throws a pipe at. Originally it pins her to the shipping container, now it just bounces off and throws her off balance.

No reason has been given for these changes, and neither Disney nor Marvel has said anything regarding retroactive changes to their content. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
