New Report Reveals That DEADPOOL Will Be PG-13 And NOT R-Rated

It's thought that Fox were struggling to decide whether to make Deadpool a big budget PG-13 blockbuster or a slightly cheaper R-Rated movie, but a new report reveals that director Tim Miller finally got a green light because they've re-purposed the script and it's now...you guessed it...PG-13!


We've all been wondering about why Fox chose now to annunce a release date for Deadpool, and while the overwhelmingly positive response to the leaked test footage undoubtedly played a role in that decision, it appears as if there was a lot going on behind the scenes as well. In the latest edition of the "Meet the Movie Press" podcast, the host revealed the following (at around the 22:00 mark) about some changes which have been made to the project.  "I heard from the director that they finally figured out the script, and it was right before this was announced, that they figured out, and you guys are all gonna hate this, they figured out how to make it PG-13. And therefore "not lose its soul", and that' a quote, of the script so that they can make it."

Is this really the end of the world? The Deadpool comic books sell well every month, and they're not packed full of F-Bombs! As for violence, PG-13 movies seem to get away with plenty, and based on the last couple of X-Men movies, Fox aren't scared of throwing in the odd "f*ck" here and there anyway. It all comes down to story, and as long as Deadpool hasn't lost its "soul", there's no real reason not to still be incredibly excited about the latest comic book movie to be added to an already amazing looking 2016. Or is there? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
