Bloodier Cut Of "The Wolverine" On Blu-ray

If there's one obvious issue with "The Wolverine" that people might have when watching it is the lack of blood.

Despite Hugh Jackman's character using his claws to slice and dice a bunch of yakuza heavies throughout the film, there's no visible severed limbs or arterial spray - even the claws themselves stay clean as a whistle throughout aside from one key scene on a biobed of sorts.

It's a necessity for the film to obtain the PG-13 rating for exhibition in cinemas. On home video though, the restrictions aren't so tight. As a result, the film's director James Mangold tells Digital Spy that a Blu-ray release could fix those issues.

"I’m very happy with the cut, and the studio was very generous in terms of letting me finish the movie as I wanted, but I do think we will have a slightly more violent version… let’s say an unrated, a bloodier version."

Asked about other additional scenes we might see, Mangold says:

"There’s about ten or 12 minutes of scenes that I’d love people to see, that we’ll produce some kind of longer version of the movie at some point on Blu-ray or whatever. There’s another great scene with Hiro Sanada and a much more elaborate battle with ninjas from the third act that is a pretty huge battle sequence that you’ll see."
