I'd agree. And even then, I'd say only ideal depending on the storyline. For this storyline, with Shingin, you don't really need an R rating. Sure, he kills a butt ton of ninjas, but it wasn't like the fights in the comics were super gory. You could make those fights work in Pg-13.
For the Weapon X storyline though, I'd say you would ideally want an R rating. A proper Weapon X storyline that really delves into not only the physical but emotional and mental torture Wolverine undergoes would definitely benefit from an R rating.
