Continuing his promotion for “Real Steel”, Hugh Jackman is out there and talking up James Mangold’s “The Wolverine” and how it won’t make the mistakes of the last film “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”.
He tells MTV News that they’re already discussing shooting two different cuts of the film – a PG-13 and an R-rated one.
“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 while you shoot it, which could be really cool. But you need to have a really good reason to exclude those fans.”
“The Wolverine” will begin production in the Spring next year.
