Yesterday, a day when we basically believe nothing we read about any movies, an April Fools joke went up that Deadpool would be rated PG-13 over at JoBlo.com. Funny. Way to go, JoBlo. Reynold’s himself got in on the action with the below Tweet.
A PG-13 #deadpool will still have 4th wall breaking, a shit-ton of action and at least 3 chimichangas. Zero need to panic. I promise.

Turns out it wasn’t just them, but 20th Centurty Fox themselves pulling off the gag. Obviously if the film was rated PG-13 it would have been terrible, but as you can see from the above video that is not the case. Deadpool will be rated R as it should be. Also, if Reynold’s pitch perfect delivery of “F**k you, Slater” is any indication he’s on top of delivering awesome.
