Hot off the heals of the smash hit success of ‘Deadpool‘, Fox has decided the 3rd stand alone ‘Wolverine‘ movie is going to be Rated ‘R’ as well. Not only this, but it looks like the internet rumors have been confirmed that the plot line for Wolverine 3 is going to be set in the future. For the latest details on this, check out the news below and let us know what you think AFTER THE JUMP!
Simon Kinberg has confirmed that Wolverine 3 is indeed already filming. Kinberg also addressed some rumors of other X-Men characters who may appear in the film, as well as Wolverine 3’s setting.
“I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say about that,” Kinberg told Collider. “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.”
This confirms a few details fans have presumed for some time, including Wolverine 3’s R-rating. Kinberg’s comments that the film takes place “in the future” are also interesting, as many rumors have pegged Wolverine 3 as an adaptation of the post-apocalyptic “Old Man Logan” story.
