Earlier this week, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds expressed hopes that the film would be rated R. JoBlo followed that up earlier today with a report that Deadpool would be rated PG-13, to which Reynolds responded on Twitter.
In the spirit of the Merc with a Mouth, however, it was all a gag, as Joblo and Reynolds have debuted a new video from the set of the film confirming that Deadpool will in fact be rated R! Check it out below.
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Ryan Reynolds will star in the title role of the film along with Ed Skrein, TJ Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Morena Baccarin as Copycat. The film will also feature the mutant Colossus, though Daniel Cudmore has confirmed he will not appear as the character.
Tim Miller is set to direct the movie from a script by Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Deadpool is currently scheduled for a release on February 12, 2016.
