The Wolverine Will Have A Much “Bloodier” Version When It Hits Blu-Ray
Wolverine is one of the more savage, violent and reckless characters in the Marvel Universe. I was happy to see him get his own Max series this year when they let him of the censorship leash so writers and artist could flesh out his character a little more towards his true nature. When the upcoming film based on the most popular X-Men was announced I knew it wouldn’t hit a rating that would allow him the same amount of liberation but the movie got hit with a PG-13 rating, most likely because they want as many people to see the movie as possible and kids dragging their parents to these types of movies helps bring in the bucks.
But all hope for a more ferocious Wolverine isn’t lost yet. In an interview with Digital Spy James Mangold, director of The Wolverine, said we’ll be seeing a different Wolverine when the film is released in an unrated Blu-Ray version.
“I’m very happy with the cut, and the studio was very generous in terms of letting me finish the movie as I wanted, but I do think we will have a slightly more violent version…let’s say an unrated, a bloodier version,” he said. “There’s about ten or 12 minutes of scenes that I’d love people to see, that we’ll produce some kind of longer version of the movie at some point on Blu-ray or whatever. There’s another great scene with Hiro Sanada and a much more elaborate battle with ninjas from the third act that is a pretty huge battle sequence that you’ll see.”
Sounds good to me.
