20th Century Fox is intending to make Hugh Jackman's final Wolverine movie rated R, and this was the case even before Deadpool came out.

There were rumors earlier this week that Fox would be leaving the PG-13 rating behind for the next movie because of its recent R-rated box office hit Deadpool.

However, as The Hollywood Reporter points out, the studio released a teaser image of the hero holding up the "middle claw" at Comic-Con last year. In addition, THR's insiders say that it was always designed as an R-rated movie because of the language and violence in Michael Green's script.

Wolverine 3 will be Hugh Jackman's last outing as the X-Man, and he believes Tom Hardy should take over the role in the future.
