Director James Mangold has revealed a taste of the upcoming teaser for “The Wolverine.” Among the fight scenes and close ups of Hugh Jackman‘s face in the Vine teaser is a big reveal: Famke Janssen has returned as Jean Grey in the new movie.
Janssen’s involvement in “The Wolverine” has been speculated since We Got This Covered reported in October 2012 that the actress traveled to Sydney, Australia to film a cameo. It remains to be seen whether her “X-Men” character, Jean Grey, will be present in the current time frame of the movie or just in flash backs, but it seems like it could be the former.
“Where this film sits in the universe of the films is after them all,” Mangold told Empire in October 2012. “Jean Grey is gone, most of the X-Men are disbanded or gone, so there’s a tremendous sense of isolation for him.” Jean Grey might be gone, but it doesn’t seem like she has been forgotten.
“The Wolverine” is due in theaters on June 26. A full-length trailer will be released online on March 27. If this isn’t enough “The Wolverine” goodness for you, Entertainment Weekly revealed eight new images from the movie, and new posters have debuted courtesy of ComingSoon and Twitter.
