Simon Kinberg has revealed 'Deadpool' is "graphic".

The 41-year-old producer has revealed that the new sci-fi movie, starring Ryan Reynolds, will see boundaries pushed to the limit.

He said: "Deadpool is a hard R.

"It's graphic. Nothing is taboo. You either commit to a truly outrageous boundary-pushing kind of movie or you don't."

Elsewhere, director Tim Miller has revealed the film has been inspired by the work of David Fincher, who directed 'Gone Girl' in 2014.

He told Entertainment Weekly: "I felt 'Fight Club' and Tyler Durden were good corollaries.

"We are in strip clubs and dive bars and crappy apartments and far away from the shiny 'X-Men' world."

Earlier this year, Ryan Reynolds said 'Deadpool' won't be the typical comic book movie.

He explained the much-anticipated film will be shot on a small budget and so he told fans to expect something a little offbeat.

He said: "It's not like an X-Men movie where there's this gigantic budget. It's quite a small film. It's very difficult to weave that character into other comic movies. He knows he's in a comic book.

"If he met Wolverine, he'd greet him as Hugh Jackman. It's tough to create a meta-universe within another universe that doesn't have any of those components."

Cynical crook Wade Wilson (Reynolds) undergoes an experimental procedure to transform him into a superhero, but emerges as the scarred and revenge-bent Deadpool. The emphasis on knowing humour is a bit obnoxious but it's a lot of fun, and Reynolds, with his likeability and swagger, was born to play the title role.
