Ryan Reynolds Hopes Deadpool Gets A R-Rating


A Deadpool movie is finally in the works and will begin filming in a month. One of the concerns about the film has to be the director Tim Miller, who is known moreso as a VFX specialist. Deadpool will be his feature film debut.

Ryan Reynolds ("Green Lantern") thinks Miller's passion for the character outweighs his inexperience. "[He's] always been the right guy," Reynolds told Collider. "He's always, you know, shown nothing but a fierce loyalty to the canon of Deadpool and that's the thing you look for first and foremost, a guy that is always wanting to push a little bit farther."

20th Century Fox isn't going to furnish their Deadpool movie with a large budget like their other superhero films. Reynolds views that as an advantage. He's excited that its lower-budget will allow it to "get to do things that you don't get to do on other superhero movies."

In the comics, Deadpool has a bit of a foul mouth. Hopefully the film doesn't censor him just to hit a PG-13 rating. Does Reynolds know if the film will be R-rated? "I have no idea," he said. "I don't want to spoil anything so we'll see.  We hope."


Deadpool arrives in theaters February 12, 2016.
