Late last month, it was reported that 20th Century Fox has scheduled an Untitled Deadpool Movie for a theatrical release in December that will reportedly be a PG-13 version of Deadpool 2. Now, BBC’s Lizo Mzimba reports that the film will receive an updated Holiday-themed title for its theatrical re-release.
Details on the changes made to the Deadpool 2 re-release are currently unknown, though Ryan Reynolds recently tweeted a new photo suggesting the updated film will feature bumper scenes in which the Merc with a Mouth reads a family-friendly version of the story to Fred Savage as a bedtime story. Now, Lizo Mzimba reports that the film will be released under the title The Deadpool Before Christmas, a possible nod to Tim Burton and Henry Selick’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
