I agree on that. I think a PG-13 Deadpool could work because his gimmick is more about being irreverent. Some of the funniest scenes, like him standing on baby legs, could work with minimal editing. The comics focus more of being surreal and irreverent, but for the most part are not nearly as vulgar and graphic as the movies have set him up to be. The reason is that, much like Wolverine, he makes a lot of cameos across the Marvel universe and that limits just how intense they can make it. As a result he comes across more like Stitch in being a troublemaker rather than someone who naturally ups the rating.
We've got a poster for OUAD!
"On December 12, there will be zero F's given."
Anyone else suspecting the humor will still be on tact as the original cut as I am right now?

God, I love that Fox Marvel dig.
Looks like there's been a bit of a Snafu regarding the UK release of Once Upon A Deadpool. The BBFC have given it a 15 Rating, the exact same rating as the un-edited version of Deadpool 2 (rather than the 12 Anote UK version of PG-13 Fox was hoping it would get). Making it's existence a bit pointless for British audiences, which is apparently why it's only getting a 1 day release.
Nice! I'm going to take my son to see it if I can manage.
At this point, it's like the movie's begging to be part of the MCU already.

Man, I'm torn.
I mean, on one hand, I really do want to see this and I like the idea of my nephews being able to see Deadpool (although, holy crap, they will be insufferable if exposed to Deadpool at their age, even though I was the same age when he got his own ongoing), but... if this does well, it really does create a dangerous precedent. Not just for PG-13 Deadpool, that's honestly fine. But repackaging R-Rated movies and giving them actual releases seems... dangerous. It's begging for some painful cow-milking.
It's been done before, they rereleased Saturday Night Fever in an edited PG form. More recently, I believe they did the same thing for The Passion of the Christ and The Kings Speech.
I mean, they release cut versions of films all the time. I've watched Total Recall (1990) on basic cable. It's the repackaging, rather than the cutting, that has me concerned.

The premise of "Once Upon a Deadpool" was eerily predicted from a tweet that came out a year ago.
I think a lot of people made that exact joke, about this and other movies. It's kind of a common well to go to. What makes it awesome is that Deadpool actually went and did it, with the real Fred Savage.

I mean, I wouldn't say that the success of this movie will rule out an R-Rated Deadpool 3.
My assumption is that, at best, this movie will do ok all things considered and not compete with the original release. It'll set up how to integrate him with future MCU movies without runing his tone and appeal.
I don't think Disney is stupid enough to REALLY consider completely sanitizing Deadpool. ESPECIALLY since most of the humor here seems to be tongue-in-cheek nods to how violent and R-Rated its SUPPOSED to be. That joke doesn't work if they completely sanitize it.
IMDB opinion poll on who should play Lady Deadpool.◊
Russell (or rather his actor) shares a message...while being savage towards the other highly-anticipated superhero movie that had Josh Brolin in an antagonistic role.
(Where’s that Avengers 4 trailer, Russo Brothers?!)
In which Fred and Deadpool discuss dissing Nickelback. My life is now complete. There are no more words.
"Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006," Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. "I've said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said 'Yes' on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining..."
I really just wanna say that I love Ryan Reynolds, and if anyone could pull this off, it's him.

Fred Savage gives an interview in-character As Himself, recounting how he was kidnapped to be in the film and hated every second of it.
Just watched Once Upon a Deadpool. I think it was an interesting experiment, and I liked the additions, but on the whole I didn't enjoy it as much as the original version. Maybe that's because I had heard the jokes once before already, or maybe because the auditorium had like ten people in it (comedies are more fun to watch with a large audience), but my money is on the movie being quite watered down (dialogue and visuals alike). An interesting experiment as I said, but one that I don't think has any reason to be repeated.
Well, I'd say the only real experiment is whether or not this can make money. The rest is... well, no more experimental and meta than Deadpool already was.
So we're getting a DVD release of this as well:
Well, at least the proceeds to this one are going to charity as well.
Remember that stuntwoman who was killed in a motorcycle crash during shooting of Deadpool 2? Well, an investigation has revealed several safety violations that led to her demise.
At the time of her death, she was rehearsing a scene that involved driving a motorcycle out the open doors of the Vancouver Convention Centre. She lost control and failed to stop where she was supposed to, striking a median and then flying off the bike into the branches of a tree and through a window.
The report says no risk assessment was done to determine at what speed the motorcycle would become airborne as it travelled off the first ramp, nor to see if the addition of a second ramp would cause Harris to travel over the first ramp at a greater speed.
The Ducati motorcycle selected for use in the scene is designed to navigate on smooth surfaces and certain adjustments made to the bike meant it was a "poor choice" for use in situations where it may fly into the air, the report says.
Potential ramifications for the Vancouver branch of Fox Studios (which oversaw production) could be pending.
Just a reminder that you always have the legal right to refuse any work if you believe it may endanger your health or safety.

Oh dear much like the Resident Evil incident.
What Resident Evil incident?
There was a similar injury involving a stuntwoman during the filming of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. She was hired to double for Milla Jovovich during her fight scenes, but was asked to do a complex motorcycle stunt at the last minute. Due to bad weather and some bad timing, she crashed into a camera crane, was horribly injured, left in a coma for two weeks, and eventually had to have her arm amputated. Luckily she did survive, but her career as a stunt worker was definitely put on hold.
There was also a crew member who died when a Hummer collapsed on top of him, although that seems to be more of freak accident than negligence on the filmmaker's part from what I can gather.
