Report: Jean Grey to Make Appearance in 'The Wolverine'
Will "The Wolverine" have a cameo from an "X-Men" member? According to latest report from We Got This Covered, the upcoming Hugh Jackman-starring Marvel film will feature an appearance from none other than Jean Grey a.k.a Phoenix, who was portrayed by Famke Janssen in the previous "X-Men" movies.
A source close to the production of "Wolverine" revealed to the site that Janssen jetted off to Sidney last week to film a cameo for the upcoming flick. The report came shortly after Janssen hinted at the possibility to reprise the role of Jean Grey in an "X-Men"-related film during the press tour of "Taken 2".
It is still unclear how Janssen's character will fit into the "Wolverine" plot as there is still no official word to clarify the rumor. The 47-year-old actress herself had previously played the love interest of Logan in 2000's "X-Men", 2003's "X2" and 2006's "X-Men: The Last Stand".
"Wolverine" has been filming in both Australia and Japan since July. The upcoming film will find Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as the mutant hero confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.
Bringing back Jackman as Logan/Wolverine, the film is directed by James Mangold with Mark Bomback and Christopher McQuarrie penning the script. It will hit the U.S. cinemas on July 26, 2013.
Jackman previously stated that the movie will be a standalone one without anything related to 2009's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". He claimed, "We've deliberately not called it Wolverine 2 because we want it to be placed and feel like a standalone picture. With an all-new cast and setting in Japan, it's going to give us a whole new visual aesthetic."
