Famke Janssen Wants to Return to ‘X-Men’ Series

Looking back on the buildup towards ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past” a couple of years ago, it was mentioned that both Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy would be appearing in the movie. Fans were confused since Patrick Stewart played Professor X in the initial X-Men trilogy and James played the same role in the current trilogy. Fans tested their faith and Fox Studios delivered on a fantastic movie that’s been called the best X-Men movie to date. Now that the upcoming X-Men movie features a younger X-Men team from the days of old, could we also see their older counterparts? Famke Janssen hopes so and wasn’t exactly subtle about it:

“And it’s not the first time, obviously, that it’s happened. In the X-Men series, they’ve been doing this for years. Although women, it’s interesting because they’re replaced, and the older versions – or more mature, whatever the politically correct version of that is – are never to be seen again. Whereas the men are allowed to be both ages. Sexism. I think that I should be back along with my younger version and the way that we’ve seen it with Magneto and Professor X.”

She also confirms she’s talked with the actress replacing her role, Sophie Turner:

“She emailed me before she started filming wanting some pointers. And I said, ‘You don’t need any. You’re perfect. You’re great.’ So I can’t wait to see the movie and what she’s done with it. I’m actually really excited about it.”

Will we see the Jean Grey of old in action? What do you guys think?

X-Men Apocalypse features James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Micheal Fassbender as Magneto, Oscar Isaac as Apocalypse, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler, Lana Condor as Jubilee, and Ben Hardy as Angel.

    Nearly all of whatever you claim happens to be astonishingly legitimate and that makes me wonder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. This piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this specific topic goes. But there is just one point I am not too comfortable with and whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the central idea of your position, allow me see what all the rest of your subscribers have to say.Nicely done.

    Along with the whole thing that seems to be building within this particular subject material, all your perspectives are rather exciting. However, I am sorry, because I do not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it radical none the less. It would seem to everyone that your commentary are actually not totally justified and in simple fact you are your self not really thoroughly confident of the argument. In any event I did enjoy reading it.

    Almost all of whatever you point out happens to be supprisingly accurate and it makes me wonder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light before. Your article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular topic goes. But at this time there is actually 1 position I am not really too cozy with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual core idea of your point, allow me observe exactly what all the rest of your visitors have to point out.Well done.
