I'm going to start this article off with a SPOILER ALERT because I don't want anyone to get pissed at me for not doing so. There's no confirmation of this rumor, but there's always a chance it could be true. So, for those of you who don't want to know what X-Men character and actor from the previous films might show up in The Wolverine then don't read beyond this point.
According to We Got This Covered, actress Famke Janssen flew into Sydney, Australia last week to reprise her role as Jean Grey a.k.a. The Phoenix for a little cameo. If this is true it'd be pretty awesome! I'd love to see the original cast members from Brian Singer's movies pop up again in the future X-Men films! Hell, there's a possibility we'll see them all about in Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: Days of Future Past.
The movie is being directed by James Mangold (3:10 To Yuma) based on the 1982 comic series created by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, and is currently shooting. It's scheduled to hit theaters on July 26th, 2013, and stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee.
What do you think about Janssen possibly coming back to reprise her role as Jean Grey in the film?
Here's the synopsis:
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, THE WOLVERINE finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.
