DEADPOOL Writers Confirm That The Franchise Will Remain R-Rated In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

There's been a lot of speculation that the Deadpool franchise could lose its R-Rating when the Merc with the Mouth arrives in the MCU, but that no longer seems to be the case. Hit the jump for details!

There's been a lot of speculation about whether Disney will allow the Deadpool franchise to remain R-Rated when the character arrives in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, the writers of the first two movies have now reiterated comments from Disney CEO Bob Iger that Wade Wilson's future big screen adventures will be adult in nature. 

"I think the party line and truth is we’re all still figuring it out," Zombieland: Double Tap scribe Paul Wernick said while doing the rounds to promote that sequel. "Marvel has promised to continue to let us play in the R-rated Deadpool universe, and the hope is that they will also let us veer into the MCU a little bit as well and play in that sandbox."
 
It seems highly likely that Deadpool's solo movies will remain R-Rated, while he will undoubtedly make appearances in PG-13 adventures where he'll be toned down somewhat. How his franchise will fit into the MCU is hard to say, but we can probably expect a soft reboot which likely won't include the X-Men now they're set to be rebooted.
