Deadpool Banned from Release in China
The Hollywood Reporter announced earlier today that the upcoming superhero film Deadpool will not be allowed in Chinese theaters. The denial was due to the film’s “violence, nudity and graphic language.”
The article states that “sources close to the Deadpool decision” claimed creating a cleaner version of the film through cuts and edits was not possible without causing continuity errors. However, it does go on to say that, due to Marvel’s impressive box office numbers, Deadpool might somehow still make it into Chinese theaters in the future.
