In an interview with Collider, X-Men Producer Simon Kinberk has confirmed that Wolverine 3 has begun filming and that they are going to make it an R-Rated film.
I know a lot of fans right now are cheering that Wolverine is finally getting an R rating, but I caution you, that an R rating doesn’t make for a good film. It still has to be good. We’ve got an excellent actor in Hugh Jackman in the lead, and very good director James Mangold at the helm, so all we need is a good script. I mean, let’s face it, an R rating would not have saved Batman v Superman or X-Men Origins Wolverine.
But I’m quite looking forward to this film and I’m hoping that Jackman has so much fun on this outing that, like RDJ, he decides to stay in this iconic role that he’s defined.
