We Got This Covered has posted a new rumor regarding The Wolverine that should raise the eyebrows of comic book fans everywhere. The site is reporting that Famke Janssen shot a brief cameo for the movie in Sydney, Australia last week. You may remember that Janssen played Jean Grey in the first three X-Men movies, but was killed off at the end of the third installment.
If true, this could mean that either the Phoenix has been resurrected, the movie takes place before the events of the first X-Men, or that Logan is having a flashback/vision of Jean. Also, with the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past dealing with alternate realities and time travel, it’s possible that The Wolverine will deal directly with that as well. We’ll have more information on this rumor as it becomes available.
