Jackman himself shared the picture (with his butt covered up by an emoji) along with other images from the film on Instagram along with the message "Days Of Future Past becomes the first movie to air on Disney+ uncensored. That was my future but let’s be honest … it’s more like my past."

It’s time children knew. #Samesies."How the MCU's Phase 4 Could Introduce the X-MenThe movie, notably, also has one F-bomb, which is the most any movie can have and still receive a PG-13 rating.
