The CEO of Walt Disney has responded to fan speculation that Deadpool would lose his rated R status in the wake of Disney purchasing 21st Century Fox.
Speaking on an investors conference call, Bob Iger confirmed that Deadpool will stay R-rated, and may even open the door for more similar-themed movies;
“[Deadpool] clearly has been and will be Marvel branded. But we think there might be an opportunity for a Marvel-R brand for something like Deadpool. As long as we let the audiences know what’s coming, we think we can manage that fine.”
The Untitled Deadpool Sequel is due for release in June and will again be rated R.
