Director James Mangold took a stab at The Wolverine in 2013 which was the second Wolverine spin-off from X-Men cinematic series. The DVD release of the film included the theatrical cut where the 3D Blu-ray release had also an extended cut and was dubbed as Unleashed Extended Edition. The extended cut contained additional scenes and had digital blood added to the theatrical cuts action scenes. Mangold confirmed with This or That Edition which edition he prefers:
@thisthatedition Complex. My fave is the unrated v of theatrical with some violence restored. Most extra scenes in extended were wisely cut.
