Earlier on it was reported that the Deadpool movie would in fact be PG. Now I know it's April's Fools and all that, but that's finished over where I am, and I'm not sure what's going on with the different time zones and what not, so I wasn't sure who to believe, or what was going on. Even still, my immediate reaction to the PG news was skepticism, and I was naturally overcome with an overwhelming and uncontrollable feeling of...
I thought Fox were trying to strong-arm Tim Miller into making a PG Deadpool movie that nobody wanted to see, which they were. Let's face it, if people were so concerned with a PG Deadpool movie, where were they when Origins came out? Wolverine, Sabertooth and Deadpool all fighting each other in a PG movie, and while the movie was an extremely modest hit, it was pullin' in nowhere near where it should have been given all the characters involved. Simply put, no one cared about a PG Deadpool then, and no one wants that now. That is until Mario Lopez caught up with Ryan Reynolds who put an end to the speculation once and for all, in pretty typical Deadpool fashion too, and it was awesome!
So, there you have it! Deadpool will be rated R! And that was actually Ryan Reynolds in the costume too. He wasn't kidding about the tight budget, but I don't care, I'm lovin' it so much! It's about damn time someone had the balls to make an R rated movie about a mainstream comic book character, pretty sure Deadpool qualifies as mainstream. Blade wasn't mainstream, nor was Watchmen, or The Crow, or Kick Ass, they were all obscure. The Punisher was probably the closest one so far, but that was pretty terrible from what I remember. I don't know if I'd qualify Constantine as mainstream, not really I don't think, and that was a very, very soft R, it sounds like Ryan Reynolds intends on really pushing the limits with Deadpool.
And for all those wondering, what about the kids???
There are easily over 40+ PG comic book movies coming out within the next 5 years, the kids have plenty of PG comic book movies to watch, too many, don't these kids have homework? And then there's all the PG franchises, Jurassic Park, Fast and Furious, Mission Impossible, James Bond, Jason Bourne, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Star Trek and not to mention all the animated movies, just let Deadpool be R, as he always should have been. Not everything has to be made for them.
Ryan Reynolds caught up with Mario Lopez to reminisce on how the prank came together and a few other things too. I'm psyched for this movie, and I hated Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, but I love him as Wade Wilson. Ryan Reynolds is going to own this movie so much so that people in 2016, after having seen it will scoff at the mere notion of a PG Deadpool movie.
