    yes I squirmed thru LOTR and yes I saw the battles which were fine when they happened without those 'Dun-Dun-Dun' moments.
    it is still the polar opposite of what Wolvie does.
    RECAST. REWRITE. RESTUDIO. RE-RE it all.

    Damn now I'm thinking what could have been of x3 with zack synder at the helm and how awesome Wolverine could be with him there but it seems i'll be left to dream.
     
  3. I definitely don't agree with them watering down Wolverine. Unlike many people I've read the comics, understand them, and realize that in my opinion, the only way to do this film is to have it be an R Rated film.

    To me that's the only way to do this. Just the other day I was reading one of my Weapon X comics and the visuals, the violence, and the origin of Wolverines past is an R rating alone.

    I haven't seen 300, so I don't know how good Synder is. Hopefully it's good and after seeing it I can judge whether or not he would've been good for Wolverine. But as a whole? This film will not be as good as Hugh Jackman fanatics are claiming to be, but of course, they'll only watch it to see how "good looking" he is instead of concentrating on the story and understanding the character.

    Yes, we all know how much you read the comics (how could we miss your growing list of sigs to prove it? I think you belong to more imaginary organizations than anyone else on this forum). :cwink:

    Your confusion on this issue is that you believe we don't understand why it should be rated R. We do, but we just understand the reasons why it probably won't be.

    The thing that most of us do realize is the marketing machine that goes into studio films like this will most likely make it a PG-13 instead of an R. Not saying I like it, but that's just how it is...and that's basically what Zack Snyder was saying in the interview that started this thread. There's just no way.

    So I don't dwell on it. Without a miracle, it's just not going to happen. The movie is, however, going to happen...and I look forward to how it does turn out. That's just the reality. It has nothing to do with who's read more comic books.

    And on that note, I was in a comics store this week, and noticed that Marc Cerasini, who wrote the Weapon X novel was there buying comics. I overheard him talking to the guy at the counter (it was a loud conversation) and he mentioned that he was working on the sequel. From the plot details I heard, that book is going to be another total gorefest, and I am so looking forward to reading it. :up:

    The whole PG-13 issue doesn't bother me because I think that story already exists in so many different mediums from the original comic, to the animated series, and to the movies. It's all variations on the same story, used to the extent that medium will allow it. I understand that if I'm watching the cartoon, it's going to be a mild version of the story. I know that if I'm watching a movie, it's going to be held back a bit because of the ratings system. And I know if I'm reading a novel or comic, all bets are off and let the carnage fly. :woot:

    As long as it's told well, then it's told effectively. That's more important to me than the bloodshed meter.

    I would be interested in seeing a Zack Snyder directed Wolverine or X-Men movie... moreso Wolverine. I like what I've seen of 300 thus far.

    If the Punisher and Blade movies can get an R rating, why not Wolverine? How can a movie be rated PG-13 when the main character and villain fight with claws? The law of physics says when Wolverine's claws cut someone they will bleed. PG-13 means there cant be any blood visable in the movie. Wolverine is not a PG-13 character.

    If this was Wolverine's first-ever movie appearance, I think it would absolutely be rated R. But this is a spinoff of a character from 3 successful PG-13 movies. Releasing an R-rated movie would probably block out most of their established fan base...and they want those fans to be able to buy tickets.

    I'd love it to be rated R, but the reality is it probably won't be. Better get used to that now.

    Wolverine can be a PG-13 movie because the main character has been fighting with claws for almost 40 years without relying on gore, nudity, and swearing to make him prosper. Wolverine became popular because of his demeanor and mysterious past… not because his villains spill blood. I agree that an R rating would be optimal to include everything regarding the character, but he can easily exist within the bounds of a PG-13 movie. He certainly has in the books.

    That said, the movie will most likely be rated PG-13… this is Fox we’re talking about. The studio wants as many potential customers as possible. An R rating might hinder that... but if by a miracle it is rated R, you won't catch me complaining.

    But there was blood in X2...when Logan escaped Weapon X he was covered in blood...:huh:
    Oh well...I wanted it to be R more for the sex and nudity parts than for the blood and gore parts. Logan nudity, of course! :woot: :oldrazz:
    Not joking now (oh, who said I was? :cwink:), "Wolverine" can be a great, dark and intense movie even if it´s PG-13. Okay, I wanted it to be R (as much as I would like to see Wolvie with a MAX title) but a good director can suggest a lot of things, without being too explicit. It´s not necessary to see tons of blood on the screen to feel the violence.

    Playing around with the facts a little bit. People knew Fox had talked to both Zach Snyder and John Moore. We discussed it on these boards.
