With the “Deadpool” movie in production, one of the biggest concerns expressed by fans has been in regards to the film’s rating. Would it receive the R-rating that the material is suited for, or would it go for a more box-office friendly but edited down PG-13?
Out doing “Woman In Gold” promotions, actor Ryan Reynolds was asked this question by EW and sadly it seems the decision has not been made either way for now: “That debate rages on. We’ll see.”
Reynolds went on to call the whole project “a bit of wish fulfillment” and spoke about why he loves the character: “It’s just how unusual he is. You understand why there was trepidation to make the movie early on? Because it’s a really difficult character to put up on the screen for the studio. He’s a character that’s aware he’s in a film, he’s aware that he breaks the fourth wall.”
Talking about how his character fits in with the rest of the X-Men cinematic universe, he says: “I mean, he does certain things that are unlike anything else in the X-Men Universe yet he is a part of the X-Men Universe. So it makes it a little challenging, I think, to find a way. He’s so popular-the comic book alone [is] one of the most popular selling comic books of all time so it’s exiting to be here shooting it. We don’t have the budget that most X-Men movies do. In the super hero world, this would be considered an independent film.”
