Ryan Reynolds Thinks That There Is Room For An R-Rated ‘X-Force’ Film

In just a few weeks, 20th Century Fox is going to unleash the R-Rated Deadpool on audiences. Currently there’s no shortage of superhero films and there’s definitely a variety out there but could this pave the way for more R-rated superhero films? While speaking at one of the surprise screenings for the film, star Ryan Reynolds commented on the subject.

I think it has to [open the door for more R-rated superhero movies], I hope so. There are a lot of superhero movies out there on the market. It’s a genre unto itself. I personally would like to see more rated R ones. I just think it’s time. We’ll see if this holds. Hollywood shamefully copycats every movie that works – so if this does work, you’ll probably see more rated R films!

We’ve heard a lot of talk about Cable likely popping up in the possible Deadpool sequel. That leads us to wonder just how long before Fox releases an X-Force film? Jeff Wadlow had written a script for the studio but that was scrapped due to a few factors. With an R-rated Deadpool leading the way, could we see an R-rated X-Force film follow? Reynolds stated that he doesn’t “think you’re going to see a rated R Avengers movie, but there’s room for other ones. I think there’s room for a rated R X-Force movie!” Are you into this idea? Or would you lean more towards a PG-13 version? Sound off in the comments section below.
