commended the company for maintaining the film's intensity.

Exciting , folks! will have a simultaneous in the U.S. and China, a first in the franchise's history. But hold on, there's a twist. The release will be a bit toned down with some censored parts.

Bit of a Bumpy Ride

In the past, Deadpool's unique blend of graphic violence and meaty language made it hard for the film to secure a Chinese release. However, the producers had a trick up their sleeve for the sequel, which they smartly re-edited into “Once Upon a Deadpool.” With a more family-friendly PG-13 rating and a holiday feel, it finally got thumbs up from Chinese censors.

This PG-13 twist was a big hit, raking in a cool $42 million at the Chinese and making a $51 million splash worldwide.

An Uncuffed

Disney, the franchise's new ringmaster, still hasn't made a formal announcement about which parts of the new film will end up on China's cutting room floor. Still, if you've seen the film's red-band (and if you haven't, really, what are you waiting for?), you've got a good idea of what to expect.

Sources super close to the movie let slip that even with these censored parts, the story's integrity and the whole “Deadpool spirit” remain intact. Awesome, right?

Ryan Reynolds, the series' superstar, is also pretty pumped about how uncensored they've been allowed to be with this film. He was surprised, but grateful, that they got the green light to go all-out with an R-rating. That's Deadpool for you!

In his words, this gave them the chance “to do anything and everything in a world where anything and everything is possible.” And Reynold's praise for Disney didn't stop there. He genuinely thanked them for the freedom and considered it as adding “a whole other color to this kaleidoscopic wheel that is the company.”

Wrapping Up

So, finished worrying about the movie being watered down? Phew, we thought so too! The release date for Deadpool & Wolverine isn't official yet, but stay tuned.

Whether you're watching in the U.S. or China, you're going to get a solid Deadpool & Wolverine experience.
Just remember, in the case of the latter, even though you might miss out on a few of the more “intense” scenes, you'll still get to soak up that unique Deadpool vibe.

Now, how awesome is that?

So, gear up, people! It's time to welcome back our favorite irreverent super anti-heroes with open arms. Forget the popcorn; this one's going to be a thrill ride! It's Deadpool & Wolverine like never before!
