THE WOLVERINE Will Receive "Bloodier" Unrated Cut Says Director James Mangold
The Wolverine director James Mangold has revealed in a new interview that a unrated cut of the film will be featured on the DVD and Blu-Ray release later this year. Plus, has he been offered a comic book movie before? Hit the jump to find out!
Digital Spy recently sat down with director James Mangold to discuss his career and his upcoming superhero movie, The Wolverine. The director let a few things slip, including that "a slightly more violent version... let's say an unrated, a bloodier version" will be released when the DVD/Blu-Ray hits stores later this year. While this is exciting news for those fans who wanted a badass/more violent Wolverine, the director also says that despite the PG-13 rating on the theatrical release, fans of the comic book character should still go see the film. The director also revealed that "people have buzzed around my interest in them [Comic Book Movies] before and I've been curious about them before, but I've always gotten the sense, from the harrowing tales of other directors' experiences, that they largely become things that are out of their control." So what do you guys think about an Unrated edition of The Wolverine? Are you guys excited? Why the hell wouldn't you be?
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality. Directed By James Mangold, The Wolverine hits theaters in 2D & 3D on July 26, 2013!
