It was by no means the first R-rated superhero flick to whip up a storm – Blade, 300 and Watchmen all debuted to varying degrees of success over the past decade or so – but there’s no question that Tim Miller’s barnstorming Deadpool has ignited a renewed interested in adult-oriented comic book films.

Boasting an opening weekend haul of over $130 million, the success of the Merc With a Mouth’s standalone feature has caused everyone to stand up and take notice – particularly top brass at 20th Century Fox. According to an image posted by Reddit user RayChaos, the ‘anticipated rating’ for Wolverine 3 now stands at R.

Alongside the listing, there’s also mention of a theatrical release date: March 3, 2017. At least on paper, that appears to be much sooner than first thought, considering that Hugh Jackman stated only three weeks ago that a script is now complete. That leaves 20th Century Fox and director James Mangold facing a quick turnaround if they really are to push out the conclusive threequel in little over a year’s time.

While we wait official word from the studio, here’s the Reddit image that suggests Fox is at the very least considering an R rating for Wolverine 3 after all.
