Wolverine Old Man Logan

For a long time, there has been speculation that Wolverine 3 would have an R rating, following the huge box office success of Deadpool. There were also rumors that the final installment of the Wolverine franchise starring Hugh Jackman would be inspired by the “Old Man Logan” comic book storyline. Of course seeing how The Wolverine Uncut Edition was much more well-received than its theatrical cut may have had something to do with that decision as well.

Now with the X-Men: Apocalypse press tour underway, we are learning more about the future of the X-Men film franchise. In a recent interview, producer Simon Kinberg confirmed that the film will be Rated-R and hinted that the film’s plot will be inspired by “Old Man Logan” storyline. More on the story below.

Stephen Merchant Lip Sync Battle

Hugh Jackman has been playing the role of Wolverine for the past 16 years. The character is the face of the X-Men film franchise, having appeared in all of the films, cameo or otherwise. He even got his own titular spinoff. The actor will, of course, be reprising his role one final time in Wolverine 3. But aside from him, Patrick Stewart was the only other actor to have a role in the film. And now it is about to add some more.

Earlier this month Boyd Holbrook was cast as an original villain not known to the comics. Now according to new reports, Stephen Merchant and Richard E. Grant have been cast in the film. More on their roles below.

After ‘Deadpool’ Success, ‘Wolverine 3’ May Be Rated R

Hugh Jackman ad Wolverine In X-Men: Days Of Future Past

In many ways, Deadpool proved that a rated R comic book movie could work and be a huge success at the box office. But given that a rated R movie is generally targeted for adults (or anyone over 17), it would be hard to at least make the same amount of box office coin as let’s say The Avengers or Guardians of the Galaxy. That’s not to say just because it’s a little watered down in terms of the language and violence it isn’t as good, but if you want to your film to be as successful, you have to make sure it appeals to the masses. So by making it PG-13, you are doing just that.

It’s easy to see why Guardians director James Gunn might be irate with some of the comments that have been made based on Deadpool‘s success, and it’s going to be no surprise at all to see studios try to copy the same formula. Seeing as the inevitable copying is close at hand, one has to wonder if Deadpool really is the exception to the rules.

But if you have watched James Mangold‘s uncut version of The Wolverine, then you have your answer. That film was better than its theatrical cut, according to fans. So based on Deadpool‘s success, it’s easy to see why Fox might be considering giving Wolverine 3 an R-rating. According to a new report, they are doing just that. Check out the full story below.

‘Wolverine 3’: Mark Millar Explains How ‘Old Man Logan’ Could Work

Wolverine Old Man Logan

As a creative consultant for Fox’s Marvel properties, Mark Millar has successfully crafted a cinematic universe with the limited properties that are at his disposal. Both the X-Men: First Class and Wolverine trilogies are coming to a close, and with the untitled third Wolverine movie said to end Bryan Singer’s X-Men Saga, it will be interesting to see how the franchise moves forward from there. We still don’t know much about Wolverine 3, but Hugh Jackman has hinted that it could be based off of the “Old Man Logan” storyline. The problem with that though is that many of the supporting characters and villains currently belong to Marvel Studios.

But Millar doesn’t see that being a major issue, and believes that “the continuity stuff is the most boring side of it” and “keeping it simplified and keeping it generally X-Men universe is a smarter thing to do.” More on his comments here below.

Hugh Jackman ad Wolverine In X-Men: Days Of Future Past

Wolverine 3 is the final time that Hugh Jackman will play the title character and marks the end of Bryan Singer’s X-Men saga. Little is known about the film’s plot, the actor has teased a few ideas he would like to see in the hero’s sequel. Rumors of an Old Man Logan storyline have been circulating for quite a while, even Jackman seemed to hint at it at SDCC earlier this year. But nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

No other actors have been added to the cast yet, but it seems that Patrick Stewart‘s role in the sequel is bigger than originally thought. According to Jackman, Professor X may play a father figure role to Logan in the upcoming movie. Find out what he had to say about it in the story here below.

Tom Hardy in The Outsider

It doesn’t come as a complete surprise that Hugh Jackman will no longer be bearing those adamantium claws after the third and final Wolverine. The actor has stated that the final installment of the trilogy would be the last time he would play as the iconic X-Men character, which obviously means that Fox would need to find a suitable replacement when the next X-Men or Wolverine film comes around.

But because of the mutant’s slow aging ability as well as the fact that the franchise has introduced time-travel to their cinematic universe, the writer(s) could explain why the new Wolverine looks so different from the old one. And with the rumors that X-Men: Apocalypse and Wolverine 3 would bring an end to Bryan Singer’s X-Men universe, it’s a perfect time to find some new blood.

While on the press tour for Pan, Jackman was asked about who he thinks would be perfect as his replacement. According to him its Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy. More on the story below.
