With The Wolverine currently in production in Sydney, Australia, hype is starting to build for the upcoming X-Men film. So far, we’ve seen various set pictures as well as the first official shot of the titular character.
It’s all been very exciting and today, the excitement continues as we’ve learnt from a source close to the film that Famke Janssen flew into Sydney last week to shoot a cameo. This news comes after Janssen hinted at the possibility of reprising her role as Jean Grey in an X-Men film while on the press tour for Taken 2.
Janssen played Jean Grey a.k.a. The Phoenix, the love of Wolverine’s life, in the previous X-Men films. It is unclear how her character will fit into The Wolverine but seeing as the film is thought to be another prequel to the original X-Men trilogy, having her appear could make sense. However she factors into it, her role in the film, as small as it may be, is sure to get fans excited.
The Wolverine is directed by 3:10 To Yuma helmer James Mangold, and stars Hugh Jackman, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Will Yun Lee and Brian Tee. It will be released on July 26th, 2013.
