Ryan Reynolds got candid about what he thinks of Disney allowing Deadpool and Wolverine to be rated hard R.

In a recent video interview with Fandango, Ryan Reynolds expressed surprise that Disney permitted the upcoming film Deadpool and Wolverine to have such a strong rating.

After Disney acquired Fox, the R-rated Deadpool films directed by Ryan Reynolds were released to a global box office total of slightly over $780 million each.

This movie is the first to be released under the Disney banner. 

Fans of comic books were concerned that Disney, with its dedication to family-friendly entertainment, may water down the R-rating of the franchise; nevertheless, Reynolds and director Shawn Levy were given the go-ahead to stick with the rough humour.

“I hope it doesn’t sound condescending, I’m really proud of them for doing this. I think it’s a huge step for them,” Reynolds said about Disney letting a film be R-rated.

“I mean, it adds a whole other color to this kaleidoscopic wheel that is that company and the different people that they have been entertaining forever.”

Reynolds continued, “I was surprised though, that they let us go as hard R, but very grateful. I mean there’s no other way to do it.”

“[The R rating] really [allowed] us to do anything and everything in a world where anything and everything is possible,” Reynolds added.
