Deadpool 2 Director Says Franchise Can Possibly Turn PG-13 In Future

Deadpool fans might have seen this coming. But it seems that the Deadpool franchise might not have an R-rating in the future. In a recent interview with Yahoo Movies UK, Deadpool 2 director David Leitch said that the next Merc with a Mouth movie “doesn’t necessarily need to be R.” He hinted that there might be a PG-13 migration in the future.

“It’s rated R so that’s not necessarily the [MCU] brand but he doesn’t necessarily need to be R and [Disney] don’t necessarily need to only make PG-13 movies,” Leitch said. “I think we’ll find a happy ground.”

Leitch revealed that he’s certain there will be another Deadpool sequel. Disney hasn’t officially announced any updates on the project yet nor contacted him to direct the movie.

“There’s a lot of mystery still surrounding what they want to do with Deadpool in [Disney’s] Marvel world but I think, from discussions that I’ve heard, it’s all positive,” he added. “I think that they’re just trying to figure a way in as Deadpool’s hard.”

Should the talks for helming Deadpool 3 go wrong, alternative possibilities exist.  Leitch has already expressed his excitement about the possibility of working with Marvel on the Blade reboot.
