After years of watering down its blockbusters to ensure a PG-13 rating, it seems Hollywood is falling over itself to go R-rated following the box office success of 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool and Logan.
Rumours have suggested that Warner Bros. is open to going down the R-rated road with the DC Extended Universe (they’ve already done so if you include the Ultimate Edition of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), but it seems we can rule it out from the Disney-owned Marvel Studios.
“My takeaway from both of those films is not the R rating; it’s the risk they took, the chances they took, the creative boundaries that they pushed, that should be the takeaway for everyone,” Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige told THR, revealing that there are no plans for the MCU to follow suit.
