James Mangold Teases Unrated, ‘Bloodier Version’ of ‘The Wolverine’ on Blu-Ray
Wolverine fans who have longed to see the Marvel mutant on the big screen in his blood-spattered berserker glory may get the chance when James Mangold’s film arrives on Blu-ray and DVD.
“I’m very happy with the cut, and the studio was very generous in terms of letting me finish the movie as I wanted,” the director tells DigitalSpy, “but I do think we will have a slightly more violent version … let’s say an unrated, a bloodier version. There’s about 10 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.”
Opening Friday, The Wolverine stars Hugh Jackman as Logan, Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper, Will Yun Lee as Silver Samurai, Hiroyuki Sanada as Shingen Yashida, Hal Yamanouchi as Yashida, Tao Okamoto as Mariko Yashida, Rila Fukushima as Yukio and Brian Tee as Noburo Mori.
