Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone are in The Croods, presumably because they both needed new water heaters. This means that on the press junkets they’re getting a ton of non-Croods questions about upcoming comic book movies (and in Reynolds’ case, one vaporware comic book movie in particular). Yes, once again, it’s time for the barrage of Deadpool questions.
It looks like Hey U Guys got there first with the scoop and the complete non-update answer.
“It’s up to the studio. The studio I think is reluctant to pull the trigger on such a hard Rated-R script. Then the guys who wrote it and the producers won’t make it unless it’s that hard and, you know, raunchy.”
The thing is, and I’ve said this before, Deadpool doesn’t need to be hard R. In his entire publishing history, Wade Wilson’s only had 18 issues of a Max title. Despite what the fanboys think, Deadpool is a PG-13 character. Let’s be honest, a perfect Deadpool movie would look like this.
Maybe have him grab those black bars and throw them at people. That’s a movie that could get greenlit. Never forget the wisdom of South Park, “Remember what the MPAA says; Horrific, Deplorable violence is okay, as long as people don’t say any naughty words!”
Disagree? Tell me in the comments why Deadpool needs to be R-rated, when he’s almost never been so in the comics.
