MTV News recently had an interview with Hugh Jackman while he has been touring the press junkets for the Detroit made "Real Steel" - So far we are hinted that there is potential for an adult oriented full throttle R-Rated "Wolverine" film; for fans of darker adult themed superhero worlds, this is very good news as the characters would not have to be treated in a nickelodeon-like fashion.
Jackman says, "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."
