'Deadpool' Announced Its Rating in a Very 'Deadpool' Way

Ryan Reynolds goes on 'Extra' with Mario Lopez to talk about 'Deadpool''s rating, but it's not what you think it is.

It appears that Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has won his (possibly staged) battle over what the rating for the antihero comic book movie will be. The announcement came in the most Deadpool way possible, which is to say it was completely irreverent and with a large dose of wiseass (and Mario Lopez).  

We could spoil it, or you could just watch the video (read: watch the video).

So the movie will be rated R, and all is right in the world. There's been a lot of talk about Fox's apprehension to make an R-rated, big-budget comic book movie, and Reynolds had been tweeting about the situation. This was two days ago: 


@DPklok051: Is it going to be rated R or PG-13?" I want #Deadpool to be R. Always have. Fighting the good fight still. Lotta yelling today.

But Reynolds followed up the release of the Mario Lopez video today with this confirmation.


February 12th. There will be blood. Guns. F-bombs. And graphic, expertly lit French Unicorn sex. #deadpoolRatedR @deadpoolmovie #Aprilpools

— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) April 1, 2015

The #Aprilpools refers to this earlier tweet that trolled the hell out of Deadpool fans across the Internet.
