Last year, it was announced that Bob’s Burgers writers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin had agreed to write the third instalment of Deadpool, now to take place in the MCU.
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige gave an update on the project on 24th February during the TCA press tour, while discussing the strategy Marvel is making to release more adult-oriented projects. So, if you are worried about Deadpool aiming its audience towards children and families, don’t be! Both Feige and Reynolds have promised there will be an R rating for the film.
So there we have it. Deadpool will be R-Rated. But what of other movies that we were expecting a higher rating of, like Blade?
It was recently reported that Stacy Osei-Kuffour has been hired to pen the script for Blade, which will now be called Blade, The Vampire Slayer. Based on the above comments from Feige it appears as though Blade will not be getting the R-Rated treatment that we expected.
What are your thoughts on these ratings? Do you think Blade should be R-Rated or do you think it will still work well?
