It would be one of the first R-rated superhero movies in the current movie landscape and that's a big gamble.
Would prefer the R but I'm still up for a PG-13 version, and I can understand the hesitation on an R for the studio. But that's the reason for the small 50m budget and Donner has always supported that R version. I would hope since it can have the larger audience with a PG-13 that they would be willing to spend more. It shouldn't have to be as cautious with that.
I guess the other thing is that it's been said it's not really in a position to do damage to the studio with the 50m budget even with the R. So it's not really as big of a gamble as long as it's that cheap. It's coming off like they just don't know what to do. Hopefully the waiting has more to do with introducing Deadpool in X-Force first. Which would be a solid move and show some planning.
