Following last week's first official photo of Ryan Reynolds suited up as Deadpool as production has alrady begun in Vancouver, another big update about the Marvel comics adaptation at 20th Century Fox has just made its way online. Reynolds sat down for an interview with Mario Lopez on "Extra," and was asked to open up a bit about the character, especially after his appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But the juiciest tidbit comes when Reynolds is asked to confirm whether or not the film will be rated PG-13 when it arrives next February. If the interview seems a little hokey, just stick around and see what happens. Watch!
Here's the interview with Ryan Reynolds about Deadpool from JoBlo:
That's right folks, Deadpool is officially going to be R-rated.
Deadpool is directed by visual effects veteran Tim Miller, making his feature directing debut, with a script from Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Ryan Reynolds reprises the titular character he originated in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary known for his or his sarcastic, talkative nature and his tendency to break the fourth wall. The film will alsoinclude T.J. Miller ("Silicon Valley), Morena Baccarin ("Homeland"), Gina Carano (Haywire) and Ed Skein (The Transporter Refueled). Production is now underway and 20th Century Fox releases it next year February 16th, 2016.

Looks more cut to me. Similar to him in "X-Men: Origins"

First the Burt Reynolds pose, now this. Seems the marketing for this flick actually is trying to properly represent the character. Makes me feel good about the actual movie.

It's really easy to to find out information about people by googling their name. I'm not spying on you, if anything, you just showed that you were by posting your little question.
