Ryan Reynolds wants Deadpool to get the R-rated treatment in the character’s MCU debut.
Ever since Disney purchased Fox and its numerous assets, fans have been wondering what the shift means for Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool films, which were previously R-rated. Disney’s MCU has never achieved a rating beyond the genre-standard PG-13, which has caused many to be anxious over Deadpool’s future, which will presumably be censored. Reynolds, the man spearheading the character’s future, is advocating for the franchise’s third film to be R-rated.
Ryan Reynolds’ most recent ploy to get the MCU to produce an R-rated Deadpool film is one that is completely on brand for the comedian. Over the weekend, Wolverine star Hugh Jackman celebrated the uncensored Disney Plus release of X-Men: Days of Future Past. The film features a brief sequence where Jackman is seen nude. Taking to the comments, Reynolds chimed in saying “Excited for them to do the same for Deadpool, it’s time children knew.”
Deadpool‘s future in the MCU has been widely debated since Fox and its various assets were purchased by Disney last year. Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has maintained that the MCU has no plans for a third film in the franchise, which has troubled many. On the other hand. Ryan Reynolds believes that making Deadpool 3 at Disney is a “win for everybody”. Currently the film hasn’t been slated for release and with the current theatrical market in a downturn, it isn’t certain when we’ll see Reynolds return as the Merc with a Mouth.
