When we say “first image from Deadpool,” we of course mean the first movie still from the actual film. There have been a lot of Deadpool images released to far, social media leaks for example, not to mention all those jokey shots of Ryan Reynolds‘ Merc with the Mouth lounging on a bear skin rug, taking it easy on the toilet, and, of course, delivering a baby. With San Diego Comic Con coming up though, it’s time that things got official, and along with the above new image, the star and creators of the film are opening up about the experience in a preview of SDCC, and in the process deliver a confirmation that yes, this is a Hard-R superhero flick.
In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, the same issue that gave us those sneak peak pics of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier today, the topic of Deadpool was also covered with comments from star Reynolds, director Tim Miller, and producer Simon Kinberg. And contrary to Reynolds 2009’s “sanitized version” (EW’s words) appearance as the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the team behind Deadpool wants you to know that this time, they’re serious.
“Deadpool is a hard R,” said Kinberg. “It’s graphic. Nothing is taboo. You either commit to a truly outrageous boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don’t.”
“I felt Fight Club and Tyler Durden were good corollaries,” added Miller. “We are in strip clubs and dive bars and crappy apartments and far away from the shiny X-Men world.”
As for the fans that basically made it all possible when they went gaga over the test footage released, coincidentally, during last year’s Comic Con, Reynolds has some very specific ideas for what to do with you, give you a kiss. “And not just a little kiss,” he added, “but full on the mouth, sloppy, with tongue, for two straight minutes on live television, without commercial interruption. And then I’ll buy you dinner at Red Lobster, at least, and dessert.”
Stay tuned for much, much more about Deadpool when 20th Century Fox takes the stage at Hall H on Saturday July 11th at 5:45. Deadpool itself will be in theaters everywhere in February. Nerd Bastards will have full court press when SDCC begins on Wednesday.
