Deadpool R Rating Promises "Strong Violence and Language," "Graphic Nudity"
< >
The R rating may be anathema to studios, but fans of the Merc with a Mouth will be glad to know that the MPAA has officially slapped Deadpool with an R rating, and the description promises that the adaptation will be faithful, at least in its levels of unseemliness:
Opening quote
"strong violence and language throughout, sexual content and graphic nudity"
Closing quote

We should all be thanking our lucky stars that this adaptation exists. R ratings cut out a huge portion of blockbusters' target audience, so it's amazing that we're getting an R-rated superhero movie, especially when studios are trying to compete with Marvel's huge box office success. But the character of Deadpool is famous and beloved for his foul language and brutal violence, so a PG-13 version just wouldn't be able to cut it. Let us all remember (or prefer not to remember) the Deadpool from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. 



Ryan Reynolds previously confirmed to Cinema Blend that the violence would be pretty "f*cked up":

Opening quote
"He gets pretty fucked up. I mean, I get shot in places that you don't usually see people get shot in movies. He does thankfully have a rapid healing factor, and a very long digestive track."
Closing quote

Meanwhile Morena Baccarin and Ryan Reynolds told Cinema Blend that the sex scenes were "very athletic":

Opening quote
"It's an origin story for these characters, so you see them falling in love," said Baccarin. "You see them meeting each other for the first time and discovering that they're kindred spirits. There's this awesome sex montage, you see them love each other more and more."

Deadpool comes out in theaters on February 12.
