Is Famke Janssen Making a Cameo in The Wolverine?

Could it be? A new rumor claims that Famke Janssen, best known for playing Jean Grey in the first three X-Men movies, has filmed a cameo in The Wolverine.

The news comes via We Got This Covered, which claims a source close to the production of the Fox film contends Janssen was in Sydney, Australia, last week to shoot a cameo. No word yet on how she will fit into the movie, but the site says it will probably be a small role.

If Janssen does in fact have a role in The Wolverine, we wouldn’t be too shocked. The X-Men movies don’t stick to one specific timeline, but they do nod to one another. Take, for instance, Hugh Jackman‘s cameo appearance in X-Men: First Class.

Meanwhile, fans are going to have the chance to talk to Jackman and director James Mangold themselves Monday, Oct. 29. The duo will be holding a live chat from Australia at 1 p.m. PT that will take place on their YouTube page and website. Fans can submit their questions through Facebook and on Twitter by using the hashtage #TheWolverineLive. Someone please ask them to set the record straight on this Janssen rumor.

Directed by Mangold, The Wolverine is based in part on the 1982 Wolverine miniseries by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, which found Logan battling ninjas and the politics of the Tokyo criminal underworld for the heart of his ex-lover, the daughter of a Japanese crime lord.

Jackman, Lee and Khodchenkova are joined in the cast by Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee. The Wolverine opens July 26, 2013.

    Why couldn’t you have a spoiler-free headline?? I guess one can’t expect the same courtesy here that Bleeding Cool and Ain’t It Cool show their readers.

    They won’t set it straight if its supposed to be surprise (just like the First Class one).  That’s just silly to ask…

    This would make a lot of sense if they are going to go with the “fixing” of the Fox movie X-Men timeline with the Days of Future past storyline in the next First Class movie.

    Wolverine exists in all the movies, so he could end up being a focal point for the “fix”.
