Exclusive: Famke Janssen Returning As Jean Grey In Secret Wars

Famke Janssen is returning as Jean Grey for the Avengers: Secret Wars movie.

The MCU is currently in the middle of the giant Multiverse Saga, which has been bringing in many timelines, and different timeline versions of certain characters, like all three Spider-Men iterations in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Now, through our trusted and proven sources, we can report that Famke Janssen will be reprising her role as Jean Grey in Avengers: Secret Wars. Though we are sure Janssen is only going to be appearing as a cameo, it could mean that Jean Grey is going to be introduced prior to that huge movie.

We can all presume that this new Avengers: Secret Wars movie is going to be modeled after the Jonathan Hickman story that was released in 2015. This means that a huge number of heroes are going to be present in the movie, along with the multiverse versions of said heroes, as they try and stop God Emperor Doom. Famke Janssen will likely be in Secret Wars next to whoever is cast as the new Jean Grey, which we can’t wait to see.

The mutants have been a missing component of Marvel for quite some time, though the media giant is slowly starting to introduce them into the current movie and show continuity. We got our first confirmed mutant in Ms. Marvel, as her origin was changed to reflect that she is of mutant origin. Also, Namor finally appeared in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever as a mutant as well, leading us to believe that Famke Janssen will not be the only Jean Grey in Secret Wars.

We did get to see Sir Patrick Stewart return as Professor Xavier in Doctor Strange 2, giving everyone the hope that more of the beloved live-action X-Men would be returning. Hugh Jackman is reprising his role as Wolverine for Deadpool 3, so it makes us wonder if he would return alongside Famke Janssen’s Jean Grey in Secret Wars. Either way, this Marvel movie is going to be the most ambitious in MCU history.

Famke Janssen may be returning as Jean Grey for Secret Wars, but she has not been in the role since 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Though everyone has their own opinions about the later X-Men movies, we are glad that she is going to return to the prime of the MCU, even if her reprisal is only for a short cameo. There could even be an epic shot that brings back the original X-Men actors in all their glory, standing next to one another ready to take on Doctor Doom.

Famke Janssen’s return for Secret Wars is still a few years away, but we would argue that she could also return for Deadpool 3, as that would be on par with the humor that the movie is trying to capture. Ryan Reynolds has stated that he wants Halle Berry and James Marsden to return, so it would make sense for Janssen to do so as well. We honestly can’t wait to see all these new MCU entries and the inclusion of the group of heroes that started everything.
