Hugh Jackman wants an R-rated Wolverine

16 Oct

“If there has been ever a superhero movie that was going to be R-rated, it’s Wolverine,” actor Hugh Jackman tells MTV and having seen Wolvie in action within the comics we’d must agree. “There’s such great temptation to make an R-rated Wolverine,” he says. “I’ve always felt that. I DO KNOW a large number of fans would really like that. I totally get it.” Jackman even admits he and director James Mangold have discussed shooting two versions – one that’s kid-friendly and one for fans who want more blood, guts and after-hours language. “However, within the last 10 years, I’ve also met many, many 12, 13 – dare I say 10, 14, 15 year-olds – who, for them, Wolverine isn’t just cool, you notice it of their eyes. He’s everything to them. So my thing is – which James and that i mentioned – is let’s not put it off the table,” Jackman added. “There’s even a chat people doing two versions, as find some way for us to do both as you shoot it, which might be really cool. But it’s important to have a very good reason to exclude those fans.”
