Which X-Man May Be Showing Up In THE WOLVERINE?!?!

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.

    by Pablo

    Not. What a typically ham-fisted and lame idea on Hollywood's part, so much for doing something that might actually 'inspire' or 'excite' audiences like say, I don't know, inject some passion or enthusiasm into this project rather than recycling what happened in earlier movies... Btw I think Omega Red is an awesome foe for Wolverine and I loved his cameo in the anime movie!

    I thought I read that "The Wolverine" takes place after X3

    by smudgewhat

    Thus those events can be referenced as flashback. Also, to those riffing on Famke's age - eat a dick. She's a goddess and an excellent actor and you'd be lucky to stand 10 feet from her quaking in your cowardly boots. While I'd be chatting her up pleasantly the way actual human beings do. And quite possibly taking her home. (Been bagging babes for years by being a real person, you knobs.)

    The second half of First Class was fucking embarrassing. So it's the tallest midget, what a wonderful distinction. And Smudgewhat, those who speak of "bagging real babes" are usually the ones with a collection of spent fuck dolls in their closet. Taping Famke's photo to it doesn't mean you've bagged her...

    by aegri_mentis

    It makes no sense other than bowing to stupid-ass fanboy idiocy to do shit like this. It serves no purpose other than getting a cheer from the audience in the theater, and it DESTROYS any sense of continuity the movies could hold.

  • Oct. 22, 2012, 6:17 a.m. CST

    It takes place after X3 obviously

    by Jeff

    Did you think it would pick up after Wolverine: X-Men Origins? A headless Ryan Reynolds running around in the early 80's with a synth pop Drive-style soundtrack and Wolverine fighting neon ninjas in Japan with Duran Duran haircuts? (Actually...that would be so much more awesome than any X-Men movie made to date.)

    If Jean Grey cameos in Wolverine 2...

    by Ray Tchoulakian

    who says she shares the screen with Logan? There's nothing in the report that she shot a scene with Hugh Jackman directly, so what if she pops up elsewhere in the film somehow without Logan around? That would at least fit with previous continuity in the films.

  • Look I liked X-Men loved X2 hated with a passion X3 & dis-liked X-Men Origins Wolverine. But in my mind you definitely will get th JJ Abrams treatment. Because too many things in First Class made the things in the original X-Films not make sense. So I always felt like it was a reboot. One that was great & more than welcomed. So if this gives us a chance to do X-Men again but with a better final acts I'm all for it.

    by richievanderlow

    I don't see the big deal here. X-Men 1 was good due to context, much like Batman '89. There was nothing like it previously and so many were happy to see some pretty good live action versions of the characters, they didn't care that the story had a lot of problems. X2 was great, and X3 was a Ratner movie... enough said about that. I'm ok with a loose continuity based on those movies, but I don't want to see a reboot.. just go from here. Less Star Trek and more Bond when it comes to how they handle continuity.

With the mutants regaining their abilities and find out what really happened to Xavier.

Surreal and emotional Prof X decimation. Beast! And he looked great too. Loved Wolvie vs. Juggernaut. Loved Pyro unleashed. Multiple Man! Phoenix goes bonkers & sexy-time with Wolvie. cyclops atomized! Seriously did you knobs even watch the movie, or did you pre-hate like a bunch of weak conformists?

  • Oct. 22, 2012, 10:03 a.m. CST

    Cool

    by skiprat1

    If they're going to go the "Days Of.." route, maybe the time travel aspect can be introduced in the timeline between X2 and X3, thus allowing the return of James Marsden, McAvoy and Stewart onscreen together, and a semi-rebooting of the series from that point forward. (And then incorporation into the Iron Man/Marvel universe, building to an 8 hour epic featuring everyone, ever).

  • Oct. 22, 2012, 10:05 a.m. CST

    Durrrr, what? That makes zero sense.

    by D.Vader

    Yes we can all pretend First Class takes place in another timeline and that's why there's no Cyclops or Jean Grey or why older Patrick Stewart is walking in Origins: Wolverine and why Emma Frost is young and in there too... ... Yes, we can and SHOULD be treating the films that way... ... But to put Jean Grey into Wolverine's film, a movie which IS supposed to jive with the other X-Men movies? That just makes no sense at all, unless neither one of them see each other.

  • Oct. 22, 2012, 10:16 a.m. CST

  • Oct. 22, 2012, 10:23 a.m. CST

    smudewhat, obviously you aren't familiar with the X-Men mythology...

    by Amadeo Zeller

    The producers, in their haste to get X3 out, they reduced the Dark Phoenix saga into a cliff note after thought...Instead of pushing the production back one year to give Joss Whedon time to produce a workable script (after Matthew Vaughn dropped out as director), they opted to hire Brett Ratner instead, who ironically threw out the original shooting script and used the first six issues of Joss Whedon's story arc of The Astonishing X-Men

  • I agree with previous posts that the cinematic X-Men continuity is a mess. I really liked First Class though and was hoping for a proper sequel not a remix/reboot like it sounds like they're planning with Days of Future Past.

    Wolverine 2

    by SwedishChef

    Electric Bugaloo. It has to be said.

  • so i am well-familiar with the mythology. I had no problem with the adaptation. We do not need literal one to one translations of comics to movies. It's neither interesting or desirable.

  • Really, as much as I liked First Class, the fact that they're angling toward Days of Future Past tell me they're not really sold on the world that a young X-Men bunch could provide. Are we really expected to believe that Hollywood can't find a way to bring Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellan, and Patrick Stewart into one film? That the prospect of huge sums of money couldn't override whatever barriers of logic stand in the way of that, from a storytelling standpoint? Maybe the future/past angle of the next X-film will end up doing that. It would provide an interesting vehicle for it. Just seems strange to me that a studio would abandon what was a lucrative franchise just to tell smaller stories with a much less well-known cast.

    Wolverine does NOT take place after X3

    by oisin5199

    where did anyone get that idea? The post-credits teaser of Origins shows Logan in Japan. This is a pre-X-men story, before he gets his memories back again. I have no idea how they'll work in an older Jean Grey, but I'm curious. smudgewhat, X3 was an abortion of Collossal proportions (see what I did there?). Just because they put in a few things fanboy things like the fastball special does not make it a good movie. The script was awful - killing Cyclops offscreen? Really? The leader of the X-Men just gone. Killing Xavier for no apparent reason other than the script called for it. Turning Magneto into a total douchebag, abandoning Mystique in a completely out of character move. Turning Rogue into a quitter. Killing off Rao (one of the only interesting human characters ripped from Whedon's run) for no apparent reason other than a mutant felt like it. Ruining Dark Phoenix. Doing all that 'cure' stuff just to imply that it could be reversed. There was no weight to it, at all, unlike the Singer films. Every possible emotional moment was rushed past just so Ratner could get to the next "cool" meaningless action scene. The whole thing seemed to exist merely to trash what Singer had built up and make it next to impossible to continue the story in any meaningful way. I just hope Days of Future Past find a way to undo all that X3 bullshit and bring back a standard contemporary X-verse we can enjoy again.

    Finally saw First Class, and was pretty underwhelmed

    by animatronicmojo

    Other than Fassbinder, I wasn't really thrilled by any of the casting. The retro look wasn't done terribly well or with much thought. A lot of the scenes had this cheap made-for-TV quality to it. And do you know what I'm talking about when I say there were more than a few Scooby-doo moments? <BR> Worst of all, what was this Kevin Bacon villain, "Shaw" all about? Was he supposed to be subversive 19th century Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw, who later became a Nazi doctor, and then a 70's leisure suit wearing secret nuclear war starter? Makes about as much sense as anything I saw onscreen.

    that doesn't make any sense. If that were true, they would have killed off Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman (maybe Ian McKellen). Patrick Stewart maybe. But James Marsden? Shohreh Aghdashloo? No, I think most of the weirdness around X3 was Tom Rothman getting back at Bryan Singer for leaving to do Superman Returns. To completely fuck up the franchise so Singer can't come back or if he does, he's gotta pull some time travel ju-jitsu to get his original cast back.

    There is a great X-men movie..no one movie but in parts of each so far

    by Darth Macchio

    X-men2 is probably the most consistently good X-film but, honestly, are any of them without faults with respect to the comic? This is not to hate - I only cannot watch the Wolverine Origins POS as I find X3 to be a cheesy but still fun movie (with the best and most iconic soundtrack to date of any Xmen film). The reasons are meaningless as anything i say will be shit to you no matter how much i explain it...likewise whatever reasons you have to ensure my douchebaggery are just as shit to me so blah blah..and who cares.... but i think we can probably all agree...to some extent anyway...that if we had a pure "phantom menace" edit of all the existing X-films (Xmen, X2, X3, Wolvie:Origins, and X:FC) that it could actually be a truly brilliant X-film. ok, perhaps we wouldn't need anything out of that Origins piece of shit except for one casting beat: Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth is an odd but excellent choice (yeah, he's not big enough but then Jackman is WAY too tall, etc) The nazi hunting scenes in FC are the best thing in that movie and, taken independantly, some of the best stuff in the entire Xmen film series. The Magneto power display scenes in X3 are excellent even if his motivations are off (biggest problem with X3, to me, was characterizations and motivations) Most of these movies don't suck for what they are but suck because they *could have been* something more than they were.

  • I always felt like things were really tight and the battle lines were clearly drawn before the whole Phoenix thing.

    All these movies are soft...ready for some...

    decently budgeted films with some real balls. Do something that surprises and gets people talking and not just spending their hard earned money on the lowest common film denominator

    Doesn't anyone remember that Vaughn oversaw the development of X-Men 3?

    by castoutthiswickeddreamthathasseizedmyheart

    He was attached to direct and pulled out at the last minute.. He's responsible for the Dark Phoenix saga being done the wrong way.

    Vaughn Had nothing to do with X-3

    I don't know where you get your facts But when Fox would not give him a real budget and wanted him to shoot the movie in * weeks he sold Fox to suck it and they gave the movie to Ratner who told them he could shoot the movie in 8 weeks and under budget.

    Since Days of Future Past is about Time-Travel...

    by Anakins_Anal_Douchewater

    ...have any of you whiny bitches stopped to consider that her cameo *might* just be setting up a link to Days of Future past ala time travel? Like maybe another post-credits sequence? The limited filming time certainly suggests this... Sounds like it could be just a link to a future film in the main continuity where she goes back in time to warn Logan of something. Sounds very MARVEL to me so why not stop thinking you know everything and quit shitting on something before we even see it? And you wonder why fanboys get such a horrible label...

    And oh yeah...

    STOP with the reboots.You have six X-Men films to work with, just build upon them. Did we really need a new Spider-Man? That shit was rehash hell.

    So I guess I'm wrong. Wolverine is NOT a prequel

    http://www.superherohype.com/news/articles/173345-the-wolverine-is-not-a-prequel So I guess the post-credit sequence in the first Wolverine movie just sets up that he spent time in Japan. Frankly, this is more interesting as they can play on Logan's isolation post-X-men. I'm a bit intrigued now.
