So yeah that movie is definitely rated R. And not rated R like 'But I'm a Cheerleader' for like... basically metaphorical sex. Nope. Rater R for masturbation jokes, profanity, and violence. Everything you'd expect from Deadpool but were too afraid to hope for from a mainstream movie. How awesome is that?
Deadpool is Marvel's infamous potty-mouth. He's got no shame, no money-management skills, and unlike the rest of the hero pantheon, he's less concerned about civilian casualties when he blows things up. The comics both celebrate and mock the hero genre, so it's exciting to see that the film adaptation seems to have embraced the character's beloved snark.
It even got a little meta in there.
We saw Wade Wilson demanding that his hero costume not be green. Or animated. Yeah. Ryan Renolds basically dissed his last superhero appearance as Green Lantern, which we all agree was terrible. Which basically means this movie has to be way better, or that'll be really embarrassing, right?
It's worth noting that the pre-screeners of Ant-Man have mentioned the film will feature the first MCU mention of Spider-Man, but the hero has a much longer history with Deadpool. The film rights to Deadpool are still owned by 20th Century, so it's kind of unlikely but... if this movie goes well, does that mean we can hope to see a Deadpool/Spider-Man crossover movie? Some day?
