Following the news of Patrick Stewart teasing he may soon be back on our screens as Professor X, it seems another X-Men alum is also set to rejoin the franchise.
Famke Janssen, who played the incredibly powerful Jean Grey and even stronger Phoenix, responded coyly when asked by MTV if there was a possibility she'd return to the role.
"One never knows. Jean Grey, the Phoenix … she finds a way to reincarnate herself constantly, so one never knows. Stay tuned.
Upon being asked if she had been offered a role in the upcoming sequel to X-Men: First Class, she replied, "One never knows. Jean Grey, the Phoenix … she finds a way to reincarnate herself constantly, so one never knows."
Though this is far from confirming her involvement, Janssen also wouldn't deny that she would appear in the sequel, titled X-Men: Days of Future Past. She asserted that she was "in no position to say anything," before adding "Stay tuned."
Seeing as the storyline for Days of Future Past revolves around time-travel, with an older Kitty Pryde transferring her mind back to her younger, present day self to prevent a pivotal moment in history, it's entirely possible both Stewart and Janssen will indeed reprise their roles in the film.
So,Would you like to see the older generation of X-Men characters return, or should the baton be passed on fully to the likes of McAvoy and Fassbender?
