6 Censored F-Bombs in the MCU, And One That Sneaked In Untouched
When squeaky-clean Marvel Cinematic Universe almost went rogue.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a beacon of family-friendly content. However, they still cheekily play with some edgy language now and then. Let’s remember those times when we came this close to an F-bomb, and that one unforgettable moment when we actually got it.
Iron Man 2 — "F**k you, Mr. Stark. F**k you, buddy."
Tony Stark's court hearing goes awry, and as Tony trolls Senator Stern, he can't help but retort with a quick "F**k you, Mr. Stark. F**k you, buddy."
It's amusing how the movie utilizes the TV broadcast to censor the word, maintaining that family-friendly facade while still driving the message home.
Guardians of the Galaxy — "What the f-"
When a deal with the Collector goes sideways, and an entire building blows up, Star-Lord drops his "What the f-" phrase but it’s cut off by an exploding lightbulb.
Spider-Man: Homecoming — "What the f-"
The same phrase, but from the most unlikely character. Aunt May steals the ending scene of Tom Holland ’s first solo movie. Finding out that your teen nephew is actually Spider-Man would make anyone drop their guard. May's shocked F-moment is abruptly cut to credits.
Avengers: Infinity War — “Motherf-”
We bet you can’t help but remember the iconic scene from Pulp Fiction, full of F-bombs, when you think of the legendary Samuel L. Jackson. As Nick Fury, he almost graced us with his iconic curse word.
In the post-credit scene of Infinity War, as Fury begins to disappear due to Thanos's snap, he's cut off right in the middle of his exclamation.
Spider-Man: Far From Home — "What the f-"
The second Spider-Man movie almost drops the f-word in the same fashion the first movie did. Peter is shocked as the world is now aware of his identity. He is left dumbfounded, managing only a stuttered "What the f-".
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law — “Captain America fu-”
In the post-credit scene of episode 1, Hulk reveals that Captain America is not a virgin. She-Hulk’s response was priceless, but traditionally cut to credits. Who would've thought we'd be discussing Cap's escapades this way in the MCU?
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 — “Open the f**king door."
During their time on Counter-Earth, Star-Lord, frustrated by Nebula struggling with simply opening a car door, lets out the MCU's first and only uncensored "Open the f***king door".
