Where to begin on why "Deadpool" should not be a PG 13, well the main reason it should be is because you will struggle to find a single fan who agrees with the idea of it. There has been talk about the potential idea of a solo Deadpool film since Ryan Reynolds played the Merc With a Mouth back in 2009 in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" however in my opinion they should drop Ryan Reynolds get a new Deadpool!
So after the leaked footage surfaced a few months ago, the whole comic world went absolutely crazy with excitement, the details we could make out through the grainy imagery was a brilliant look at how it may be done. However, Fox decided to release their HD version of said test footage resulting in a lot of us being let down, turns out that the whole thing was CG, nobody wants that Fox, NOBODY! If you haven't seen it, you're in luck (kind of);
Given this test footage it was safe to assume that we would be getting a 15/18 or R-Rated depending on your location, however, turns out we were all wrong it's looking very likely now that Fox are set to make the film a 12/PG-13. Could they be any further from being right?
Lets all be honest, is Reynolds a viable option still? I mean David S Goyer signed on to make a solo Deadpool film in February 2004 and back then Reynolds was attached to star, so for OVER a decade they have been trying to get it made and haven't even came close. Surely somebody doesn't have faith in this project or it is just not meant to happen. I say start from scratch wipe it all clear and start from scratch anyway I digress back to PG-13. I will post some panels from Deadpool comics to prove that child friendly rating is so wrong it's laughable.
Surely Wade's physical appearance is child friendly?
That's just four panels I came across doing a tiny bit of looking, my time reading a few Deadpool comics I guess around 30, there is probably countless ones in them alone that prove my point. Just because you own the rights to a character Fox, doesn't mean you should bend the idea over and go in dry. You just have to look at what use done in "X:Men Origins: Wolverine" to see how you destroyed a character, even the look in Origins was awful.
I envision this is how the majority of Deadpool fans are sitting right now awaiting your decision Fox, do the right thing, GIVE US GORE AND VULGARITY!!!
