For a third week in a row, the rated R comic book movie DEADPOOL held on to the #1 spot.This has the movie studios scrambling. They seemed to think that comics were for kids and therefore needed to be rated PG or PG-13. However, despite cult followings for other R rated comic movies like BLADE, THE CROW, WATCHMEN, and DREDD, it took DEADPOOL to wake up everyone up. They already announced that there will be a rated R version of Batman vs Superman for Blu-Ray and DVD, and WOLVERINE 3 will be rated R. Some characters are either too brutal or too sexy to confine in a PG zone.
