If your not familiar with Deadpool, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, played by Ryan Reynolds, who, after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Reynolds makes numerous comments about his character [Deadpool] in numerous interviews. In an interview with Seth myers, he states: “… Yeah he’s profane, violent and extremely funny…” and “…He breaks the forth wall, he’s very mad at the movie, he knows he’s in a comic book…”
Now that we all know how big of a hit Deadpool was, how is this going to affect future Marvel and maybe even D.C. movies? Rumors have already been tossed around. A mere two days after Deadpool’s shocking box office success, the studio announced that it wants the third solo Wolverine movie to also be rated “R.”
What does this mean for future superhero films? Some think this is going to benefit the superheroes. I don’t know about you, but I would be glad to see wolverines claws actually cut through someone and actually draw blood. What do you think? Could Marvel and/or D.C. comics benefit from the “R” Rating?
