The Kidd here...
It seems that the X-Men have a flair for the dramatic, showing up in other parts of their world, in order to give the fans watching an incredible geek-out moment (yeah, I'm looking at you, Logan). That tradition may continue into a second film with a familiar X-Man from our past potentially popping up in Wolverine's solo prequel sequel THE WOLVERINE.
According to We Got This Covered, Famke Janssen flew over to Sydney where production has been ongoing in order to shoot a cameo as Jean Grey, her role in the first three X-MEN films.
This would imply that perhaps Jean Grey and Wolverine crossed paths before the first X-MEN, which, if memory serves me correctly, really gave no indication that they ever knew each other, although, in that film, Jackman's character has no real recollection of the past, but... well, you'd think Grey would have said something, no?
This, of course, is sure to start the speculation again though that the universe of FIRST CLASS and the original films may wind up coming together in DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. Could the X-Men we've come to know - the present-day mutants - re-appear on-screen as the older versions of those in the FIRST CLASS sequel?
Mark Millar recently confirmed the time travel element of the story arc, which shouldn't be a surprise, since we knew that was coming when we first broke the sequel story title a few months ago, but in calling it "X-MEN meets THE TERMINATOR" to SFX... well, that does get the mind wondering exactly how massive this idea could be for DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. Could it open up an alternative timeline that restarts the X-Men, sort of like J.J. Abrams did with STAR TREK, allowing the canon to exist while having the freedom to then do other things? Might we be seeing more of Jean Grey in the future? Can they possibly re-do "The Dark Phoenix Saga" the right way? We'll find out sooner rather than later.
