Twentieth Century Fox’s Logan is indicative of their problems managing their X-Men franchise.
Supposedly it’s going to be R-rated, not because Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) is a mutant who’s primarily features are a healing factor, Adamantium-coated claws and a bestial nature to match, but because Deadpool had an R- rating, and it gave Fox almost 800,00 reasons to do the same.
Money see, money do.
So it’s not as if the executives actually understand the character, because if they did they would have had him be PG-13 in the X-Men movies, and R in the context of his own features.
Which isn’t for a moment to imply that the character can’t work as PG-13, only that he’s better suited for a harder rating.
