“Take care of this toxic waste.”

The Toxic Avenger has just been rated R for gore and graphic nudity.

Peter Dinklage stars in the upcoming remake of the ‘80s comedy classic, which sees an unassuming janitor transformed into a grotesque superhero after falling into a vat of toxic waste.

Known for its gruesome violence and camp B-movie style, The Toxic Avenger seems to be inspiring the remake to push the boundaries of decency, too.

The R-rating means that The Toxic Avenger joins the likes of fellow adult comic book movies such as Deadpool, Logan, and The Suicide Squad.

Obviously, this rating will be a hit with the fans. After all, the original ‘80s superhero comedy found a cult following due to its over-the-top violence and low-budget charm. And if the official synopsis is anything to go by, The Toxic Avenger is back with a vengeance.

“Based on the 1984 cult classic of the same name,” reads the synopsis. “Set in a fantasy world following Winston, a stereotypical weakling who works as a janitor at Garb-X health club and is diagnosed with a terminal illness that can only be cured by an expensive treatment that his greedy, power hungry employer refuses to pay for. After deciding to take matters into his own hands and rob his company, Winston falls into a pit of toxic waste and is transformed into a deformed monster that sets out to do good and get back at all the people who have wronged him.”

Jacob Tremblay recently joined the project as Winston’s son, with the legendary Kevin Bacon also on board as the film’s villain.

Details of the film’s plot are currently quite scarce, so it’s unknown how Kevin Bacon’s villain fits in. However, Dinklage won’t be suiting up as the original Toxic Avenger, Melvin Ferd Junko III, instead starring as his own new character, Winston.

The Toxic Avenger stars Peter Dinklage as Winston alongside Elijah Wood, Julia Davis, Taylour Paige, Kevin Bacon, and Jacob Tremblay. Macon Blair will write and direct the remake based on characters by Lloyd Kaufman.
