Possibility of R-rated X-Force Movie

While it was obvious to both fans, and Ryan Reynolds himself that Deadpool needed to be R-rated. It was a risk that paid off for the studio. Making an R-rated superhero movie is difficult because it eliminates a large portion of the expected audience. Of course, there will be that annoying mom who takes her 8-year-old to see  Deadpool and then complain online about how it was too sexual or violent or whatever, but that’s a rant for later.

Aside from the annoying mother, Deadpool was a huge success in its opening weekend, which is great and paves the way for more rated R superhero movies. Of course the R-rating should be used delicately. Not all superhero movies need to be rated R, but now that we’ve had one, it’s definitely worth considering. Simon Kinberg, the producer of Deadpool explains that pretty well when he spoke with Collider;

“I think there are some stories that could be R-rated, I don’t know what they are, I mean I think the mainline X-Men movies have their own tone, which is a more operatic tone. It’s more dramatic, it is more PG-13 in a way. X-Force I could see being R-rated, and who knows?” He added,  “I’m saying I could imagine a universe in which [X-Force is R-rated].”

Seeing more R-rated movies would be nice to see and could give some relief in the over saturation of superhero movies by giving a completely different tone and feel to the kind of movies they are. I’d love to see more explicit superheroes!

For more on X-Force, here’s our original casting suggestions. We didn’t think of Munn, but we’re happy she’s there. Also, the movie team lineup is discussed here.
