Disney+ Removes Tribute To The Late Reg E. Cathey From LUKE CAGE; Cheo Hodari Coker Responds

Disney+ has made some more edits to two of the Marvel Netflix shows that were recently added to the streaming service, and these are even harder to explain! Why remove a tribute to a beloved actor?

It came to light last week that two scenes from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier had been censored for violence almost a full year after the episode originally aired, and Disney+ has now made edits to two of the recently added Netflix Marvel shows that are even harder to explain.

The guys over at Bounding Into Comics have noticed that the in memoriam tributes to the late Stan Lee and actor Reg E. Cathey (The Wire, Oz) have been removed from the final season 2 episodes of The Punisher and Luke Cage, respectively.

We have no idea why anyone would deem it necessary or even remotely appropriate to edit out these tributes, but the streamer recently claimed that the censored version of TFATWS episode mentioned above was uploaded "by accident," so perhaps this was also some sort of mistake.

We'll give them the benefit of the doubt until we learn more, but Luke Cage creator Cheo Hodari Coker is understandably upset about the removal of his tribute to the beloved Cathey, who passed away following a battle with cancer in 2018.
