The latest trailer for Fox’s Deadpool 2 dropped a few hours ago, and it’s pretty funny. As usual, Deadpool shows a wanton disregard for not only propriety, but the third wall, which he demolishes with aplomb.
And while I don’t think it’s necessary for this movie–or any superhero movie for that matter–to have an R rating, I do admit that I enjoy the way the Deadpool movies seem to revel in their R-ratedness.
Though the problem is that there’re likely a whole batch of movies –like Sony’s upcoming Venom–that will be R-rated less because the story requires it than they’re trying to imitate the success of movies like Deadpool and Logan.
So thanks, Mr. Pool.
