Hugh Jackman wants an R-rated Wolverine

“If there was 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 in the comics we’d have to agree.

“There’s such great temptation to make an R-rated Wolverine ,” he says. “I’ve always felt that. I know a lot of fans would 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, in the last 10 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 and I talked about – is let’s not put it off the table,” Jackman added.

“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.”
