Bob Iger Reiterates That ‘Deadpool’ Will Remain Rated R With Disney

Bob Iger Disney Ryan Reynolds Deadpool 2 X-Force FoxIf you thought Disney would make Deadpool PG-13 going forward, Bob Iger has something to tell you.

Fans of Deadpool and the X-Men were worried that after the Disney/Fox merger the Merc with a Mouth would be put on a proverbial leash and get turned into a nightmarish PG-13 version of itself. Fox’s attempt to see what that looked like was Once Upon a Deadpool and that worked out partially, but it doesn’t seem like that’s what Disney will be doing going forward. During an earnings call Disney’s Bob Iger held his stance on Deadpool.

Bob Iger previously stated that he has no plans to change Deadpool and that includes its R Rating. Rumors flew around that Once Upon a Deadpool was an attempt to see what a PG-13 version of the film could do as a soft version of what Disney planned for the franchise, but now it looks like Bob Iger has different plans. During Disney’s Q1 earnings call, Chairman Bob Iger says “We’re continue in that business.” when asked about Deadpool and R rated Marvel films going forward. He also stresses the importance of “carefully branding them” and that should give fans hope for the future of Deadpool.

Suicide Squad Characters That Can Appear In The James Gunn Sequel

Previous1 of 11

James Gunn Suicide Squad DC ComicsJames Gunn is directing The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. but that comes at a cost.

When the first Suicide Squad was about to hit theaters DC fans were completely ecstatic. The trailers looked great and the feel of the movie was much different than the darkness that preceded it in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie was expected to be one of DC’s biggest hits and it turned out to be one of the biggest let-downs of all time.

Suicide Squad was bad and its reviews reflected that. It was one of the only movies I’ve ever been upset at and it made me want to leave the theater. A sequel was announced because the film did well at the box office, going through a number of drafts until James Gunn was brought on to write it. With James Gunn now officially set to direct The Suicide Squad, it looks like the film will be a bit of a soft reboot.

Last night was a bit of a DC maelstrom of news. We got the release dates and official titles of Matt Reeves’ The Batman and James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Both movies will be hitting theaters in Summer 2021. Throughout all of the chaos a small tidbit surfaced about The Suicide Squad: the James Gunn-directed film will be some sort of relaunch with new characters and actors. Here are the characters I think James Gunn should introduce in his Suicide Squad movie. Hit Next to view all of my choices.
