Hugh Jackman and the Wolverine claw props he uses are going to have a very busy schedule in the next 18 months, what with The Wolverine and X-Men: days of Future Past coming up. With regard to the former, the actor hints that he won’t be the only familiar face who will be appearing in the movie:
“The movie takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand,” says Jackman. “My character is at his lowest. He is supposed to be able to heal himself, but he may encounter someone who has worked out a way to really hurt him. And there is a cameo from one of the past X-Men in it.”
There are rumors floating around that the X-man in question is Jean Grey, especially after actress Famke Janssen provided a little teaser, saying “Jean Grey, the Phoenix, she finds a way to reincarnate herself constantly…”
The Wolverine will open in the UK on 26 July 2013.
