The Rock thinks Deadpool is amazing (because who doesn't, let's be honest) and has congratulated the astronomical success of the sassy mouthed mutant after the film's multiple-record-breaking box office smash this weekend.
The wrestler-turned-actor, a.k.a. Dwayne Johnson, tweeted to his nine million followers:
Mr. Rock nods to how Deadpool’s R-rated success may mark the dawn of a new era of superhero films, in which comic book heroes don’t have to be mellowed for kids to ensure success.
The recent announcement that Wolverine's 2017 release will also be R-rated was probably nudged by the rewards of Deadpool's red-suited rudeness.
Deadpool shot to triumph of mythical scale almost overnight by hauling in $135 million in the US during its opening weekend.
It blasted these records apart:
- Biggest R-rated opening weekend
- Biggest Friday to Sunday opening weekend from a long weekend
- Biggest 20th Century Fox debut ever
- Biggest X-Men debut ever
- Biggest R-rated comic book superhero movie ever
