Hugh Jackman‘s character Logan in “The Wolverine” might be moving on with his life after the events of 2006’s “X-Men: The Last Stand,” but he still hasn’t gotten over his one true love: Famke Janssen‘s Jean Grey. As was revealed in the movie’s trailer, Grey will have a presence in “The Wolverine” even though she died in “The Last Stand.” Jackman teased exactly what that means during a recent interview.
“There’s no doubt that the most important relationship in his life is — we’ve seen through the movies — is his relationship with Jean Grey,” he tells MTV News. “Yes, we saw her die at the end of ‘X-Men: The Last Stand,’ but in this movie, she has a presence, which I think is vital to the movie, particularly for him confronting the most difficult thing within himself.”
That means that fans can likely expect to see more than just that one snippet of Janssen in this movie. But Jean Grey isn’t the only woman in Wolverine’s life, as he’s also got Rila Fukushima‘s Yukio and Svetlana Khodchenkova‘s Viper to deal with.
“Viper is a bada**, for someone who plays Wolverine, who is pretty bada**,” Jackman gushes of Khodchenkova. “She’s not your girl next door. You’re going to end up kind of loving every minute she has on screen.”
“The Wolverine” is due in theaters on June 26.
