Deadpool is finally beginning shooting this March. After years of fans pleading for this movie to become a reality, our desires are becoming a reality. The film will be shooting in Vancouver, the hometown of star Ryan Reynolds.
Fans have wanted this film since 2009 when Reynolds first played Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Then it was seriously pleaded for even harder when the test footage for a Deadpool movie was leaked online. Obviously the studio heard the overwhelming response from fans because shortly after it was announced they would bring the movie into development.
The character of Deadpool is known for being more of an adult oriented character. His comic books are of a darker shade compared to other supers especially that of the Marvel world. He is known for breaking the fourth wall and being overly talkative, and often sarcastic. The question is now whether the film Deadpool film will end up being R-rated. It is likely that the theatrical cut would be PG-13 but possible they could release a special R-rated director’s cut once it is released on DVD and Blu-ray.
