Disney is understood to have rebuffed a request from Saudi Arabian authorities to cut "LGBTQ references" from the latest film in the Marvel franchise.Before 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness 'can be shown in cinemas in the ultraconservative Kingdom, a scene of "barely 12 seconds" would need to be excised, the country's head of film classification Nawaf al-Sabhan told AFP.The scene in question sees lesbian superheroine America Chavez refer to her "two moms". "It's just LGBTQ references," Al-Sabhan said. "In the Middle East, it's very difficult to get something like that across."So far, he added, Disney had replied "not willing" to make the requested deletions.
