“It’s a very radical, bold, different Wolverine than you’ve ever seen in any of these movies,” said producer Simon Kinburg at the press day for X-Men: Apocalypse in London.
“It takes place in the future, and as you and others have reported, it is an R-rated movie,” Kinberg also added. “It’s violent, it’s kind of like a western in its tone. It’s just a very cool, different film.”
While director James Mangold originally shot The Wolverine to be R-rated, the studio opted to release it as a PG-13 film to the public.
The untitled Wolverine film is currently in production. It is set to open on March 3, 2017.
