Deadpool Rating Still Under Debate

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.”
