Imitation is the best form of flattery right?
Deadpool borrowed Wolverine‘s face (for like a minute) and now Wolverine is taking a little something from the loud-mouthed mutant.
Following the R-rated success of the anti-hero who looks “like a testicle with teeth”, Wolverine’s producers have confirmed they’ve decided to send the clawed mutant off on his very own high – an R-rated high.
This is a huge increase from the previous PG-13 rating of Hugh Jackman’s first two solo movies, Collider reported.
What does this mean for the Aussie actor’s final appearance as Wolverine?
Well, according to Producer Simon Kinberg, it means there’ll a lot more violence in a “Western” kind of way.
“It’s violent, it’s kind of like a Western in its tone. It’s just a very cool, different film.”
– Simon Kinberg, Wolverine 3 Producer
He continued, saying Jackman will deliver a “radical, bold, different Wolverine than you’ve ever seen in any of these movies”.
The announcement comes after the first R-rated Marvel movie, Deadpool, experienced major success, being named the highest grossing R-rated film of all time.
The anti-hero flick was dripping with Wolverine references, despite it being the only X-Men movie to not feature the popular mutant.
