Did Hugh Jackman Confirm Famke Janssen's Cameo In THE WOLVERINE?
While chatting with the magazine, Parade, Hugh Jackman was asked to provide a scoop about his and director James Mangold's The Wolverine. And he didn't disappoint, as he revealed that there will be a cameo by a past X-Men. Are the rumors of a Jean Grey cameo true?
PARADE: Give us a little scoop on the film.
You want to get me into trouble, don’t you? [laughs] Okay, the movie takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand. My character is at his lowest. He is supposed to be able to heal himself, but he may encounter someone who has worked out a way to really hurt him. And there is a cameo from one of the past X-Men in it.
Okay, so why is it Famke Janssen? Relax, I'll tell you. Let's start at the beginning of this rumor. On October 1st, MTV News, caught up with Famke and asked the actress if her X-Men character, Dr. Jean Grey, might return.
"One never knows," Famke said coyly. "Jean Grey, the Phoenix … she finds a way to reincarnate herself constantly, so one never knows."
Then a few weeks later, the website, We Got This Covered, reported that Famke had flown out to Sydney, where The Wolverine was being filmed, so that she could shoot a cameo. Now, factoring in what Hugh Jackman said, I would have to believe we will see Famke's Jean Grey rise from the ashes once more.
Thanks to Blanket-Man for the scoop!
