It's learned Hugh Jackman's final Wolverine movie has begun filming and will be rated-R.

Collider caught up with Simon Kinberg at a press event for X-Men: Apocalypse where Kinberg offered the following:

“It’s a very radical, bold, different Wolverine than you’ve ever seen in any of these movies.”

“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.”

The untitled Wolverine movie has a March 3, 2017 release directed by James Mangold also starring Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant and Eriq Lasalle.

Hugh Jackman is also heavily speculated for an appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse, which hits May 27th.


Giving new meaning to "it takes a village." With the awesome Renya. Liz is nearby too!
