Deadpool & Wolverine Officially Receives R-Rating

Deadpool & Wolverine officially receives an R-rating, though this isn’t a surprise, given that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has already hinted that it will be R-rated. Its F-bomb-filled trailers, “intentionally crude” popcorn bucket, and Feige calling it “f*cking awesome” at CinemaCon in April are enough clues that it will be rated R. In a bulletin MPA’s Classification and Rating Administration issued on Wednesday, June 5, the MCU movie was rated R for its “strong bloody violence and language throughout, gore and sexual references.”

However, though Deadpool and Deadpool 2 are both R-rated, the threequel is the first Deadpool film to receive the rating for “gore.” Hence, fans may see more blood in it than in its predecessors. It’s also the first movie set in the MCU that is R-rated.

In an interview with Fandango, director Shawn Levy revealed that the film earned its R-rating to stay true to Deadpool’s tone. He also had Feige and Marvel Studios to thank for. The Marvel head and the rest of the company’s team gave them the creative freedom to extend their limits.

"We were clear from the get-go," he said. "We said, 'Well, the three of us [Levy, Ryan Reynolds, and Hugh Jackman] are going to do this and we've got to be truthful to the tone of a Deadpool movie.' That means we're not softening the edges. We're going to be audacious and funny and edgy, the way I know I, as a fan, want from Logan and from Wade Wilson."
