In the United Kingdom, it chose not to take any risks by showing a television station Spider man (2002) and removed the notion that homosexuality is considered.
The film opens with a trilogy of Sam RaimiPlayed Toby Maguire, Is still considered the best adaptation of comics, but was initially marked for many years by a visual homosexual comedy. When this feature aired on British television, the channel ITV Decided to cut the scene.

As a test of his powers, he must face a pumped and threatening enemy in the cage McGraw Bone SawPlayed Randy Savage – One of the biggest names WWE.
In order to provoke his rival, Parker mocks his opponent’s ring, (in Brazilian): “I liked the model. Did your husband give it to you?”. Like the joke sent by many at the time, it felt numb for years. Because of this, ITV removed it, as one Twitter user pointed out.

Anyway, Spider man The rest of the world, including Brazil where the film is available, continues without any cuts or changes HBO Max, Netflix And Globophile.
