Rumors Suggest 'Wolverine 3' Will Be Rated R And Based On The Old Man Logan Storyline From The Comics

The idea of Rated R superhero movies used to be considered a death sentence, with studio's rarely taking that risk. Now with the success of Fox's Deadpool, the door has been opened for many darker superheroes to finally be adapted to the big screen, and no have their material limited to a PG-13 rated. Fox themselves have a character who has been more than deserving of a darker adaption, with his third outing possibly finally being the first R adaption of the Wolverine to hit the big screen. There's also a chance this the film may be based on the famed 'Old Man Logan' comic book storyline, which is something fans have been waiting anxiously for. 

Now is as good a time as any for Fox to give an R-Rated Old Man Logan movie a shot. With Marvel Studios finally adapting the famous Civil War storyline to the big screen, the chances of getting an Old Man Logan adaption have seemed all the more likely. Thats also not to mention the fact that this is supposedly going to be Hugh Jackman's last turn as Wolverine, and it seems like a fitting conclusion for the character. 
The rumor of the third film being R-Rated comes from a picture taken at Fox event last weekend, which lists the anticipated rating for the movie as R. Both Jackman and director James Mangold have both expressed their interest in making an R film for Wolverine, with 2013's The Wolverine having originally been planned that way. Fox has yet to confirm if this picture is real or if the rating is official, but given the studio's success with Deadpool and the director and actor's interest in having it that way, it seems very likely.
Den of Geek are the ones reporting that the movie will in fact be based on the well known storyline, which pretty much requires an R rating to be adapted correctly. Much like the problem Marvel had to face with Civil War, Old Man Logan features many characters such as an older Hulk, Hawkeye, and Red Skull that Fox does not own the rights too. I'm sure Mangold will find a way to work around this, most likely substituting some of these characters with those already in the X-Men universe, or cutting their parts completely.
