“Is that supposed to be scary? Pegging isn’t new for me, friend, but it is for Disney.”

But for the international green-band trailer, the word ‘pegging’ is replaced with ‘an R-rating’, which is said to be re-dubbed making the movie appropriate for the younger audience. The trailer that was released during the Super Bowl was a shorter version of the actual trailer, which did not include the scene. The full version of the trailer was later released on YouTube.

According to Escapist Magazine, it is not surprising that Disney decided to censor the word for the international trailer of an R-rated movie because it wants audiences from every age group to be able to watch Wade and Logan on-screen.
