What Will Future Deadpool Movies Be Rated?
When it comes to Deadpool, one of the reasons why the eponymous character’s movie was so successful is because his ribald, irreverent humor was such a stark, yet enjoyable change of pace from the more child-friendly PG/PG-13 superhero/comic book properties at this time. While there were R-rated comic book movies before, such as the Blade trilogy, Deadpool‘s success was undeniably connected to its mature rating. The same goes for its sequel; without the R-rated theatrics, the raunchy character couldn’t really thrive. This was made apparent in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and was also the case for Once Upon a Deadpool, Deadpool 2‘s tepid PG-13 edit.
