The big question around “The Wolverine” — besides whether or not it will scrub “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” from our memory — is it how it will or won’t fit into the original “X-Men” trilogy or the new “X-Men: First Class” series. And now, we may have a clue.
According to sources speaking to We Got This Covered, Famke Janssen has reprised her role as Jean Grey in “The Wolverine” in what is said to be a small cameo appearance that she shot last week. As fans will remember, Jean Grey/Phoenix met her demise at the hands of Wolverine at the conclusion of “X-Men: The Last Stand.” So with “The Wolverine” presumably taking place before the trilogy, the appearance of Jean Grey could make sense. And given the time jumping nature of “X-Men: Days Of Future Past,” and producer Bryan Singer‘s hint of “connectivity” between X-Men films, one wonders if this will be the only time Janssen will popping her head back in this world.
With Jackman set to do press rounds for “Les Miserables” soon, we’re sure confirmation of this and more morsels will be spilling out. “The Wolverine” lands on July 26, 2013.
