A new image posted by @wponx (the official Wolverine 3 movie Instagram) confirms an ‘R’ rating for Logan, reports ComicBook.com. The image features a black and white picture of a severed arm lying in a puddle of blood, holding a shotgun in a clenched grip.
Although we have known for a while now about the ‘R’ rating (a first for any X-Men film), this is the first violent visual we have seen. It looks like we’ll be seeing plenty of slicing and dicing from our favorite Canadian mutant!
Logan stars Hugh Jackman (X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Logan/Wolverine and Patrick Stewart (Star Trek: The Next Generation) as Charles Xavier/Professor X, Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl), Richard E. Grant (Game of Thrones), Stephen Merchant (Hello Ladies/Extras), Eriq La Salle (ER), Elise Neal (Scream 2), and Elizabeth Rodriguez (Orange is the New Black).
The film is being directed by James Mangold (The Wolverine/Walk the Line), based on a script by Michael Green (American Gods) and David James Kelly (Mind Mgmt).
It’s set for release on March 3, 2017, from 20th Century Fox.
