    BvS is definitely going past the $1 billion mark, that's pretty much a lock at this point.

    And I'm definitely against the proposed idea. There is absolutely no logical reason whatsoever for Deadpool to go from Rated-R to PG-13.

    I don't see any good reason to make Deadpool 2 a PG-13 movie.

    No one really does. Especially after the movie was released.

    There's nothing wrong with movies being PG-13. If you want the largest audience, that's what you need. So, high budget blockbusters kind of have to be PG-13. This doesn't mean Deadpool, or movies like it, need to be PG-13. Not every movie should be a AAA blockbuster. The problem arises when you take a movie concept that logically should be solidly R, and then snip and cut around the edges until its just barely passable as PG-13. Or, for that matter, when you take a movie that should logically be PG-13, and then force in random gore or sex or whatnot in order to push it over the edge into R.

    Anyway, Deadpool 2 should be R, certainly. There's a place for PG-13 Deadpool, and that place is "appearances in other X-movies". X-Force is a toss-up, if you make it basically "Deadpool and Friends": could be R, could be a hard PG-13. Depends on what they do with it.

    Just for one running joke, it seems like a weak idea to make it PG-13.

    Hi guys. I know I'm late.. But I'm new here. This R rating thing? Is this in the US? Because over here in the UK it's rated a 15, which kinda surprised me from the off. Having the sequel as a PG-13 would ruin the whole thing.

    My- and probably others, as well- theater experience watching Deadpool was hindered by the parents that brought their very young children with them, in a stroller even, while they watched the film. I'd prefer to not have the potential number of kids infesting a movie theater bumped from two to umpteenth.

    R = 15, NC17 = 18.

    I think.

    I would just make the movie however it needs to be made, rather than making it with the goal of getting a particular rating.

    Oh God NO!

    Go watch the Spider-man franchise(s). Go now, run along... there you go.

    No way a castrated version of Deadpool makes near 800 million.

    The movie caught fire because of the shock value turning superhero conventions on their head.

    People loved it.

    I read the OP...that's an interesting thought...but maybe they can use the rating as a gag and keep it as rated R...but pretend it is PG 13 and then in the first 5 minutes throw that idea out

    I think they should keep it a hard R

    It wasn't PG-13.
    The blood appeared almost black because of the blue-ish color filters used, and it being splattered over grey asphalt.

    Yes because multiple uses of the F-word and Ryan Reynold's ass being shown is generally PG-13.

    You'll get enough PG-13 Deadpool in whatever X-men film he eventually ends up having a cameo in (exception being X-force). Let Deadpool play by his own rules in his own movie.

    That could work and actually end up being hilarious...

    This 100%.

    Make the best film you can and let the ratings board decide whether it's an r/pg13 etc...

    If you can do Scott Pilgrim vs the World at that rating, you can certainly pull off Deadpool as well.
    There's just the matter of the dark and sadistic humor and display of powers/action that necessitates the R.

    The idea of "Deadpool struggles to conform to a PG-13 rating" has a lot of merit but it should be saved for when Deadpool is crossing over into another franchise. Like if he were to appear in one of the main series X-men movies.

    You could have Deadpool appear in an X-Men movie and do the same joke. What sense would it make to castrate and water down an actual Deadpool movie just to do a lame running gag?
