X-Men film franchise producer Simons Kinberg has confirmed that Wolverine 3 has begun filming.
The film will be Hugh Jackman’s final performance as Wolverine, and Kinberg promises this movie will stand out from previous installments in the series.
“It’s a very radical, bold, different Wolverine than you’ve ever seen in any of these movies,” Kinberg tells Collider.
While Kinberg stopped short of confirming that Patrick Stewart will be reprising his role as Professor X for the film, he did confirm that Wolverine 3 will be R-rated.
“I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say about that,” Kinberg said. “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 film being R-rated, set in the future, and having the tone of a western all fall in line with rumors that the movie will be based on Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s 2008-2009 “Old Man Logan” story, which involved Wolverine travelling cross-country in a dystopian future where the supervillains had won.
