If you take a trip to the list of highest-grossing R-rated movies in the world, you will find Deadpool two solo theatrical entries in the top 5. I mean, Mr. Pool even had a joke about it in Deadpool 2. And, unlike most movies, I feel that it earned its R-rating by peppering every frame with F-bombs, C-missiles, and other jokes that will exhaust alphabets from every language. However, if the merc-with-a-mouth wants to complete his trilogy, he might’ve to restrict his no-holds-barred sense of humour by a lot.
After Disney practically bought 21st Century Fox and the rights to its Marvel characters, one question has been lingering on everybody’s minds: ‘Will Deadpool lose his R-rating?’ Well, the easy answer is yes, obviously. Because it’s common knowledge that Disney produces family-friendly products and they aren’t going to change their USP for Wade Wilson. Now, some might think that that’s a bad thing and might steal Deadpool’s thunder, but Deadpool 2 director David Leitch is of the opinion that it’s not. While talking to Yahoo Movies UK, he said,
“It’s rated R so that’s not necessarily the [MCU] brand but he doesn’t necessarily need to be R and [Disney] don’t necessarily need to only make PG-13 movies. “I think we’ll find a happy ground. There’s a lot of mystery still surrounding what they want to do with Deadpool in [Disney’s] Marvel world but I think, from discussions that I’ve heard, it’s all positive. I think that they’re just trying to figure a way in as Deadpool’s hard.”
Let’s clear things up. The Deadpool comics are only occassionaly vulgar. For the most part it stays in the PG-13 version of Marvel comics. Which means that the same is possible for Ryan Reynolds’ iteration. Then, as much as I love both the movies, I think that the writers are only increasing the number of sexually-charged jokes and F-bombs instead of trying to actually be funny. While it’s working now, I don’t think it will work in the long run. So, restricting his ability to express himself in the most explicit will probably allow the writers to craft more creative jokes and elicit a lot of laughs.
Once Upon a Deadpool might not be a good example to say that Deadpool will work in PG-13 because it was a re-edited version of a movie that was written with a R-rating in mind. But if it’s done from scratch, I honestly feel that a PG-13 Deadpool 3 can work because a movie’s rating is rarely a measure of its quality. And if Ryan Reynolds is involved in the creative process and, as Letich wishes, Mahershala Ali’s Blade joins in as well, it’s certainly going to be a Chimichanga-filled ride for the books!
