Ryan Reynolds Explains Deadpool Announcement (Video)



April 1st saw Ryan Reynolds tease the rating for Deadpool to be PG-13, which was an April Fool's Joke, but then in a rather funny video with Mario Lopez, Reynolds officially announced the film to be Rated-R.

Now Reynolds and Lopez are back to further explain why they did the April Fool's joke and talk more about the Merc With The Mouth.

Check it out in the following video:

"Deadpool" has a February 12, 2016 release directed by Tim Miller starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, TJ Miller, Ed Skrein and Gina Carano.


Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
