This is a highly inaccurate statement and the essential problem the character's had cinematically for years.

Wolverine is not for kids.

Claremont says it in every interview, he began as a Canadian superhero but the more and more he peeled the onion, the more he realized how much more he was than just a another superhero. That's why he pursued the miniseries & eventually his own bi-monthly book.

Wolverine has blades on his hands, the temper of a wild animal & he is virtually invulnerable. People are gonna get chopped to pieces around him. There's nothing children will gain from admiring Wolverine other than this guy can kill better than anyone else.

Start watching real movies please. Its sad to read stuff like this because it shows the target demographic for these films to studios (young adults) is still filled with people that have no interest in this genre evolving and would rather it remain family-friendly summer fare. Watch Black Swan, Lost Highway, Videodrome, Shame, Requiem for a Dream, Mulholland Drive...I guarantee you this "soft porn" view of serious cinema will disappear & an embrace of story, gravitas & pathos will begin.

I want the Daniel Plainview approach to Wolverine. The Benjamin L. Willard approach to The Punisher. I want character exploration in my CBMs. I don't want yellow spandex & white boots.

You have the cartoon for that.
