A huge success both critically and financially, this summer’s Captain America: Civil War is likely to make many top ten lists by the time 2016 is all said and done. With a cast rivaling either proper Avengers film, and superheroic battles fans had been wanting to see for years, Civil War managed to live up to the sterling reputation of predecessor The Winter Soldier in the opinion of most.
Despite the overall serious tone and high worldwide stakes found within the plot of Civil War though, it would be hard to accuse the film of lacking in laughs, especially courtesy of supporting characters Ant-Man and Spider-Man. Still, sometimes even the most dedicated Marvel fan isn’t in the mood for dramatic scenarios and possibly life or death clashes between former friends. Sometimes a viewer wants nothing more than to see their favorite characters deliver lowbrow jokes designed to appeal to the inner teenager in everyone. Thanks to a new YouTube fan edit, those desires can now at least partially be fulfilled.
Created by YouTube user Daily Asgardian News, the above video – entitled Captain America: Civil War: Unnecessary Censorship – offers exactly what the title suggests: a series of clips from Civil War made filthy by the addition of added bleeping of words that have no reason to be bleeped. Taking an obvious cue from Jimmy Kimmel Live’s popular recurring segment that applies this practice to various bits of recent pop culture, this leads to some of Marvel’s greatest heroes having exchanges that are most certainly not appropriate for fans of all ages.
While the gags are mostly of the auditory variety, one assumes that Civil War getting unnecessarily censored might not exactly be safe to watch at work, at least not without wearing headphones. For those unable to watch at the moment, some of the best altered lines and/or sight gags include Peter Parker imploring Tony Stark not to copulate with his unusually attractive aunt, Black Panther noting how entertaining it would be to see one of his female bodyguards get down and dirty with Black Widow, and Scott Lang getting a bit too cavalier with where he puts his hands on Steve Rogers.
Sure, none of the above gags are high art, but most would likely agree that there’s nothing wrong with a good old fashioned sexual one-liner every now and again. There’s more than enough room in the world for both sophisticated storytelling and jokes about Bucky Barnes banging Tony Stark’s mom, it’s just all about knowing one’s audience. Otherwise one ends up with crying children and angry parents wondering when Spider-Man got so foul-mouthed.
