Because they are still X-Men films with X-Men characters in them, even though they more or less exist in "their own universe."

(All we have is an untitled Fox slot and an ambiguously ironic Ryan Reynolds Tweet to go by, but the motive and circumstantial evidence is overwhelming.)

And now we have details that Reynolds' Tweet wasn't ironic, and Fox's strategic last-ditch PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2 actually WILL be a "Princess Bride story-time parody":

It's only a limited-time stunt, as Fox has already learned Disney's lessons about theatrical re-releases in the Blu-ray era.
