The Wolverine - Harder Version Announced for Later
When The Wolverine starts in cinemas worldwide, fans have to accept that it will be rated PG-13. This decision was made in order to reach a broad audience. Economically understandable as the budget wasn't that small.
But fans who hoped to see a harder version of the movie will probably be pleased when it comes out on home video in autumn 2013. In a recent interview, director James Mangold announced that he plans to release a slightly bloodier version of his film on DVD/Blu-ray. He is overall happy with it but there are scenes he'd like to put back in:
Also, Mangold talks about a scene where he was surprised that the MPAA didn't ask to censor it:
If you still want to see The [rather harmless] Wolverine in theaters, you can do so with some less anger since the longer version is most likely underway.
