According to a recent interview with Hugh Jackman the next Wolverine film set to be directed by James Mangold may end up getting two different cuts... a PG-13 version for the kiddies and a R-rated version for the rest of us. It would be incredible if something like this actually happened. I would absolutely love to see an R-rated Wolverine film! It needs to be done! Here's what Jackman had to say to MTV:
There's such great temptation to make an R-rated Wolverine. I've always felt that. I know a lot of fans would like that. I totally get it. If there was ever a superhero that was going to be R-rated, it's Wolverine. However, in the last ten years, I've also met many, many 12, 13, dare I say 10, 14, 15 year-olds who, for them, Wolverine is not just cool, you see it in their eyes. He's everything to them. So my thing is -- which James Mangold and I talked about -- is let's not put it off the table. There's even a talk of us doing two versions, as in finding a way for us to do both as you shoot it, which could be really cool. But you need to have a really good reason to exclude those fans.
I hope this happens, I doubt it will, but I really hope it does, and if they do end up doing it, I'd love to see a very hardcore real Wolverine film. What are your thoughts? Check out the video interview below.
