Deadpool 3 doesn't need to be rated R, director says

One of the bloodiest, most foul-mouthed film series might have to clean it up a little now it's part of the Marvel family.


Could Deadpool 3 be OK to take your kids to?

Deadpool, and its sequel Deadpool 2, don't lack in razor-sharp inappropriate jokes, antiheroes, star-studded cameos and bloody violence. But since Disney added 20th Century Fox to its metaphorical Infinity Gauntlet, Marvel Studios regained film rights to Deadpool, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. This, according to Deadpool 2 director David Leitch, means the third installment might not be rated R.

"It's rated R so that's not necessarily the [Marvel Cinematic Universe] brand but he doesn't necessarily need to be R and [Disney] don't necessarily need to only make PG-13 movies," Leitch told Yahoo Movies UK on Monday. "I think we'll find a happy ground."

Last December, Deadpool 2 was rereleased in theaters under the title Once Upon a Deadpool and billed as PG-13. The re-edited, holiday-themed version ran from Dec. 12 until Christmas Eve in the US. 

Disney and Leitch didn't immediately respond to request for comment.
