When one thinks of Ryan Reynolds, they rarely think of the plethora of family-friendly movies that make up his filmography. Yeah, there are plenty of his movies that are within the PG-13 range, but they’re often overshadowed by the likes of less kid-friendly fare like Waiting, Deadpool, and Green Lantern — though that last one is more because it isn’t really fit for anyone.

And yet, in spite of this, the man is stepping firmly into the world of family-friendly entertainment with Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, where he’s playing the titular Pokémon, Detective Pikachu (see what I did there?). But we know that, at the end of the day, it’s hard not to think of his version of Pikachu as just a toned down version of Deadpool, so the next question here is…when will we get an R-rated cut of the movie?

Here’s what Ryan Reynolds said:

“Have I considered it? Are you kidding me? I think there’s one that they could cut. Yeah, not hard R, but there’s some stuff in there. Because you just sort of want to be free. Sometimes you have to get it out. You have to say the worst thing that’s on your mind just so it goes away and then you can focus on the stuff that can actually be in the movie. So yeah, there’s a version out there that will never see the light of day.”

Sadly, not only will those NOT see the light of day, the audio itself was probably promptly deleted.

“There was some very sweary hyphenates. I remember that but otherwise no. They don’t even animate that, they’re just like ‘ok that goes right in that little garbage can shaped icon on the computer and that’s it.”

We expect nothing less. Nintendo is a notoriously family-oriented company, so anything remotely controversial tends to be kept at arm’s length. In fact, it’s kind of a surprise they allowed Reynolds to begin with.
