SPOILERS: Surprise cameo revealed in The Wolverine?

May 8th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Hugh Jackman is a busy man not only has he been shooting for  X-Men: Days of Future Past, he’s also been doing some reshoots for The Wolverine. Apparently, they also shot a post-credits scene with a surprise cameo that will set up an “inbetweequel” which could very well be used to connect The Wolverine with Days of Future Past.

If you don’t want the cameo SPOILED for you, please stop reading now.






The news comes from Joblo, who said that the additional scenes being shot in Montreal include a surprise appearance from none other than Professor X interacting with Wolverine. Their sources tell them that it took place at an airport and sounds “like it appears at the end of the movie, possibly when Wolverine returns from Japan.” Here’s a description of the scene that was filmed:

“So according to our source, the airport scene involves Wolverine….and Professor X. The new scene has the two of them walking into the airport and then going into a freeze frame. The source goes on to say that while things could always change, this is what he/she witnessed and was told on the set of the re-shoot.”

As you know Brett Ratner killed off Professor X (Cyclops too!) in The Last Stand, and the Wolverine movie takes place after that. It’s still unclear how Patrick Stewart will appear in both this and X-Men: Days of Future Past. How did he get his body back? Along with the time travel aspect of the next film, Xavier’s psychic powers can be used to “fix” a lot, I guess. Whatever they do I doubt it will be explained in the extra scene itself.

The movie also stars Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, and Brian Tee.

The Wolverine claws into theaters on July 26th, 2013.
