The producers of Deadpool 2 have announced that an edited PG-13 version of the film will be released, casting doubt over whether it will include the movie’s groundbreaking lesbian relationship. Fans praised the second installation of Deadpool earlier this year for introducing Yukio (Shioli Kutsuna), the girlfriend of Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand).
Entertainment website Deadline has reported that 20th Century Fox will release a PG-13 film called Once Upon A Deadpool in cinemas from December 12 to Christmas Eve.
The youth-friendly version of the movie will be largely made up of edited clips from Deadpool 2, which meet the requirements for the lower age-rating. This means there will be fewer clips showing violence, sexual content and profanities. However, this is no indication over whether Once Upon A Deadpool will retain the romantic relationship between Yukio and Negasonic.
