Ryan Reynolds reveals Deadpool movie rating in excellent April Fool prank


Ever since the debut of Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool in Marvel‘s disappointing X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Marvel fans have been cautiously sceptical when news of a Deadpool film was announced as in production last year.

How was he ever going to be the Merc With A Mouth if his mouth is horrifically grafted shut, Marvel!?

Although the film won’t be released until early 2016, promotional material is already in full swing with leaked HD test footage officially confirmed as voiced by Ryan Reynolds and a raunchy first look at Ryan Reynolds in costume.

Comic book fans know that the anti-hero character is humorously barbaric. but it was reported that the film would be rated PG-13 to allow younger viewers to see Deadpool in action. Buoyed by the outrage of fans, Ryan Reynolds was allegedly “fighting” for the Deadpool film to be rated R.

However, a couple of days later, it appeared that not even the star himself could change a film rating.

In an exclusive Extra interview with Mario Lopez, Ryan Reynolds talks about the Deadpool film, live from the film set in Vancouver. Discussing its seven year struggle to become a reality, the interview takes an odd turn when the new film rating is brought up and Reynolds is evidently agitated by Lopez‘s assertion of a “family-friendly” film.

It was the news all Deadpool fans had been hoping for. Breaking the fourth wall, the official R-rating was revealed in true Deadpool style. Here’s a behind-the-scenes video of the elaborate April Fool‘s prank with Mario Lopez and Ryan Reynolds.

Directed by Tim Miller, the widely anticipated film will also star Brianna Hildebrand, T.J. Miller, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano and Ed Skrein.

Deadpool will be released in UK cinemas on 12 February 2016.
