Ryan Reynolds and the [Deadpool](movie:38663) PR team has been absolutely killing it recently with social media content and fun teasers for the movie. It looks like it's going to be a great movie and the naysayers have been slinking away from their keyboards, realizing that this could turn out well.
Recently, Reynolds put this video together, a joke, saying that Deadpool was going to be rated PG-13. Check it out below:
Rest assured, it was just an April Fool's joke. The movie will be R-rated.
Recently, photos have emerged of the Deadpool star and how he will look under the mask! This is big because, if you recall, Fox did a pretty weird job depicting him in X-Men.
I hope they get this right, and it looks like they did.
Apologies for the picture quality not being great - this is all that we have so far, and poor quality or not, it looks like the post-cancer Deadpool is going to be sweet!
Here's another pic of Reynolds without eyebrows, and a more gnarly look.
If you aren't super familiar with Deadpool, here's the quick rundown of why he looks like this. Wade Wilson was given Wolverine's healing factor in an experiment that was horrifyingly torture-filled, so he's been able to regenerate even more quickly than Wolverine himself can. But he came into this experiment with lage-stage terminal cancer and was only given this healing factor AFTER being scarred.
So, most of the time he looks like this!
His head could get even more gruesome in the film... imagine some kind of Freddy Krueger type of thing going on.
I can't wait!
