The cast was asked how making an R-rated comic book movie allows them to be different from all the others and that’s when things got interesting!
"We can say f*** a lot," Gotham star Morena Baccarin, who plays Reynolds’ love interest in the movie, told ETonline before dropping curse words like nobody’s business.
"F*** yeah! S*** is real," T.J. Miller added.
But Reynolds actually offered a serious answer to the question.
"Obviously most comic book movies are family friendly. Deadpool’s unique," he said. "He’s aware he’s in a comic book movie. He breaks the fourth wall, addresses the audience directly. It’s very meta, but at the same time, as the canon would suggest, it’s quite cruel and quite dark as the world [is]."

"And in addition to being very funny, it’s also sadistic. So you kind of need that ‘rated R’ to get us over the hump, to tell the story we need to tell," Reynolds concluded, before "falling over" from exhaustion with his answer.
