Does anyone see this as a Disney thing? I really hope they keep Deadpool r-rated in the MCU.

Since the Disney/Fox merger has yet to be effective, this is all Fox's doing. Of course it's probably related to the merger, since it feels they're testing the waters for a PG-13 Deadpool. Even then, Disney CEO Bob Iger has stated they're 100% open to keeping Deadpool R-rated.

If I wanted gore or torture porn I'd watch an Argento flick. I have higher aspirations for my superhero viewing.

some superhero franchises are meant to be dark and tuning it into a Disney movie would be the same as having a Disney Princess series with tons of F-bombs and nudities. I wonder how would the audience feel about it then?

I don't know where people keep getting the idea that Deadpool is some sort of especially dark or R-rated character. For the vast majority of the character's history, that has not been the case. There was a single Deadpool series for the Marvel MAX line, but it only ever ran for 12 issues. The majority of Deadpool's published history as a character has been very strictly in the PG-13 realm at worst. This is a character, mind you, who Marvel has actively marketed at an all-ages audience and who was in a friggin' Lego set not too long ago.

That's not to say an R-rating doesn't bring with it a lot of freedom and interesting creative avenues. Part of the appeal of the Deadpool films is that they're different from the majority of Disney's Marvel flicks. But to pretend that Deadpool has always been a hard-R character and that he could not possibly work in a PG-13 movie is ahistorical.

Look at Wolverine in  X-Men TAS, he wasn't allowed to gut anyone, except robots but his character was still back on.

Honestly, if you're going to do a PG-13 variant of an R-rated movie, this is totally the way to go about it, in my opinion. Plus, this fits Deadpool's whole breaking the 4th wall thing to perfection! I weirdly ended up liking the sequel more than the original, so I'm good with getting a second version of it. :cool:
