Today is a day filled around the web with all kinds of April Fool’s Day articles, and it is also the perfect time for FOX to address Deadpool‘s rating controversy. There was some worry that the character, who has been known to shoot his mouth off with all sorts of vulgar statements, might have to be toned down for a more family-friendly PG-13 rating. This wouldn’t sit well with fans, as not even Deadpool himself would settle for something as mundane as a PG-13 rating.

Now a new video interview between film star Ryan Reynolds and Extra‘s Mario Lopez hopes to calm some of those fears down with some answers and a few laughs. Hit the jump to check it out.

The “exclusive” video popped up over at JoBlo, and it seems to confirm that Deadpool will be rated R. It was described with the following:

Ladies and gentlemen, we at are proud to bring you the first exclusive footage of Ryan Reynolds in full costume as Deadpool aka the “Merc with a Mouth” and he has some very exciting news to share with everyone.

Reynolds also tweeted this:

Given today’s date we can’t be quite sure if this news should be taken seriously. But, given the humorous way Reynolds revealed the Deadpool costume, and given the hilariously graphic nature of the video towards the end, it’s obvious that Deadpool will be rated R. I’m sure fans wouldn’t want to have it any other way.

Directed by Tim Miller, using a script written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool also stars Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, and Gina Carano. It opens in theaters on February 12, 2016.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
