R-rated Marvel Films Heading to Disney Plus

    Disney announced that Deadpool, Deadpool 2, and Logan will all be available to stream on Disney Plus in the U.S. starting July 22.

    The films mark a turning point for Disney+ as they will be the first R-rated movies available on the service. These additions come after Disney+ expanded into the rated R/TV-MA territory by updating its existing Parental Controls in March of this year.

    In a news release, Disney encouraged subscribers to “revisit their parental controls settings to ensure a viewing experience most suitable for them and their family.”

    The three films were produced by 20th Century Fox as part of that studio’s licensing deal for the X-Men characters. They fall under the Disney umbrella after the company acquired much of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets in 2019.

    Deadpool tells the story of Wade Wilson, a former special ops soldier who becomes a mercenary after being subjected to a rogue experiment. Logan brings a stirring end to Hugh Jackman’s run as Wolverine.
