Wolverine 3 is finally confirmed to be an R-rated film. Additionally, producer Simon Kinberg promises the movie will be more radical, bold, and different than previous X-Men films. He also talked about the possibility of Patrick Stewart joining the cast as Professor X.
The release for “X-Men: Apocalypse” is fast approaching. But the interest is already intense for the mutant standalone film, “Wolverine 3.” Old Man Jackman will once again sport the claws in his final film appearance as Logan.
According to IGN, producer Simon Kinberg stated that ‘Wolverine 3’ will be different than previous mutant films. It will be violent with a kind of cool western feel to it and obviously will garner an R-rating.
Kinberg also revealed that the film will take place in the future although with the current reboot of the X-Men timeline this could also mean the present. It also hasn’t been confirmed whether the popular Old Man Logan plot will be adapted for the film.
Unfortunately, there has been no solid confirmation regarding Patrick Stewart returning as Charles Xavier in the film. It seems the rumors will still have to wait for the producers to give more details regarding Professor X.
Collider reported that after the huge success of Deadpool, 20th Century Fox was greatly emboldened to give the film a green light. Deadpool also prompted Fox to unleash Logan’s true comic book character and opted for the film to be R-rated as well.
With this much hype and planning given to the film, it will definitely the best send-off 20th Century Fox to date. Hugh Jackman will finally ditch the sideburns and give way to a younger and fresher face to portray Logan.
It will be hard to imagine another actor take on Jackman’s iconic role as the adamantium-clawed mutant. To think that Jackman was not originally intended to portray the character in 2000’s X-Men is even harder.
