Exclusive Update: Ryan Reynolds reacts to the Deadpool PG-13 rating

04.01.2015

After our news this morning, it looks like Ryan Reynolds has something to say about that pesky PG-13 rating...Enjoy the Chimichangas below!

Yes, that's right. No April Fools. No Bullshit. DEADPOOL is rated R. Now, let's get a taco.

Original "story" below:

Well, it’s official; DEADPOOL has succumbed to a PG-13 rating. A source at Fox has confirmed to us that the Ryan Reynolds led X-Men spinoff flick will indeed carry that all-encompassing PG-13, despite the outcry for a more hardcore R-rated take on the Merc with a Mouth. Surely, this news will rile up a lot of fans that were hoping for a more foul-mouthed escapade, complete with the blood, guts, and potential nudity, but I think there’s still hope in a PG-13, albeit somewhat more dim than with an R.

Reynolds has made it clear that he was fighting for an R all along, but it appears he has lost that battle. DEADPOOL creator Rob Liefeld has stated in the past that the script for the film, written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, is “R-rated” but it would seem that some of that will have to be toned down to fit it’s new four-character rating. While I’m somewhat disappointed with this news, it’s not the end of the world. DEADPOOL is a great character and the comics certainly don’t bear an “R” or “Mature” rating (although they often push the envelope towards it), so I think there’s some wiggle room. Still, imagine the possibilities if that sucker took an R, am I right? It would be the first X-film to do so and show some enormous faith in the material, not to mention the effort put forward to sell it that way thus far. Sigh.

DEADPOOL, directed by Tim Miller, and starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano, Brianna Hildebrand, and Ed Skrein will chimichanga into theaters on February 12, 2016.

I like that this is also a bit of a "fuck you" to all the pussies who said "I'm ok with a PG13 Deadpool as long as its done right." Haha. Deadpool wouldnt be done right in a million years if it was PG13

Okay, yeah yeah yeah...

April Fool's joke. Joblo, you killed it. I honestly fell for last year's when Michael Cera was the Riddler. But how is no one talking about how Badass Deadpool looks in live action! His costume looks awesome! If this is a tease of what's to come, fuck yeah! Deadpool looks great smashing people.

Freaking hysterical!

This was a GREAT way to address the ratings question. As opposed to the F4 (who's done everything wrong), this film is doing EVERYTHING right! I'm already getting excited about seeing it. They really have their shit together!

Solid joke. Getting Reynolds and Fox involved pushed it from pretty obvious to decidedly plausible. Well done.

Best April Fools Gift I've ever seen!

Boy I don't think I've ever been so happy to see a story change. Earlier today I was going to likley not see this out of protest but now I think I have to. This is also I think the best reveal I've ever seen from a studio, at least as far as ratings go.

The other best part was seeing nearly every bar change from red to green.

So glad the rights stayed at FOX because if they had gone back to Marvel he would have been shoe horned into the MCU and would have been "family friendly". They probably would have got rid of Reynolds too. FOX has done a great job getting X-Men back on track so they will NOT screw this up!!!

Hats Off to Joblo for Getting this Video and Exclusive

This is the best prank I've seen in years. And obviously this means that the Ryan Gosling Die Hard film is dead-set serious. Well played Joblo. Still can't believe you got Ryan Reynolds involved. Deadpool will be rated R of course, Fuck You Slater.

If the rating is "not a big deal" like some of you say, then how come its made out to be a big deal?

We've said going into movies that the rating doesnt matter on so many movies, but when it came out, the consensus was that many movies couldve benefited from an R rating. Its why the rating debates are still big deals, because so many times have we felt that movies were neutered when going from R potential to PG13

It's definitely fake. Anything that contains "confirmed to us" on April Fools is easily a joke. His tweet was in response to those who are worried that the movie MIGHT be PG-13.

If true, it could still work. It all depends on how the director handles it. If they can make a joke out of censoring the bloody parts, it could end up making the film more interesting. I'm curious about this first time director. He's worked with Edgar Wright, that's a plus. His animated short Rockfish seems pretty cool. He's got a big responsibility here.

I feel bad for Ryan Reynolds.

The guy fought tooth and nail for this to be rated R. I know that for a fact.

Also, Fox wants this to be PG-13 because if it does well they are going to bring Deadpool into the Xmen universe and they can't have this R rated character dumbed down if he is already established as an R rated figure.

That's disappoiting to say the least. Would have really been a nice change for a comic book character like this to receive the R Rating it deserves.

Anyway, my hopes and expectations are still very high for this one.

Two April Fools articles for the price of one.

While the film will undoubtedly end up with PG-13 rating, there's no reason why Fox would "exclusively" reveal that to you.

Is this another April Fool's joke? How in the hell would they know what the rating would be now? Age of Ultron comes out in 4 weeks and still doesn't have a rating, how would this get a rating already? I call BS...

Of course they would know the rating, they have a completed script and will decide ahead of time so they're not wasting their time filming what won't be used. Every studio does it differently.
