Filming has begun on Wolverine 3, Confirmed for R Rating
Wolverine 3 has been confirmed for an R-Rating by Simon Kinberg, who told Collider that in addition to that the film has already begun filming.
“I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say about that. I will agree with you that Patrick Stewart was rumored to be a part of that film. It takes place in the future, and as you and others have reported, it is an R-rated movie. It’s violent, it’s kind of like a western in its tone. It’s just a very cool, different film,” Kinberg said.
Hugh Jackman is starring as Wolverine, with Patrick Stewart as Professor Charles Xavier. Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq La Salle, and Elise Neal round out the cast so far. Mutant X-23 is rumoured to be making an appearance.
James Mangold is directinng the film from a script by David James Kelly. Fans will be looking to this being the definitive solo take on the character as Hugh Jackman departs the franchise.
