X-Men veteran Famke Janssen recently addressed her potential return as Jean Grey as fans are clamoring to see her reprise the role.

For the past few years, we've seen actors from the original X-Men films return to reprise their roles in recent and upcoming MCU releases such as Patrick Stewart, Kelsey Grammer, and Hugh Jackman.

Fans are hoping that more actors from the old franchise will make their return and there have been rumors that we will see more of them soon in Deadpool and Wolverine.

In a recent interview, Janssen opened up about her potential return as Jean Grey and following the steps of her former X-Men co-stars who have reprised their roles.

"I don't know. I mean, I didn't expect to come back after dying as Jean Grey," she said.

"I came back as the Phoenix [in 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand], and I came back in flashback scenes in The Wolverine, and then in Days of Future Past."

Janssen added that return after Jean Grey's death "were all surprises that I never anticipated."

Regarding her potential appearance in Deadpool and Wolverine, she simply said, "I don't know. I doubt it, but you never know."

The actress has previously stated that she will not be making an appearance in the upcoming MCU film, but fans have speculated that she is not allowed to make any confirmation which is why she gave such a response.

There is no doubt that fans will be delighted if Janssen does end up reprising the role even for just a cameo appearance since her portrayal of Jean Grey has been beloved for many years.

For now, fans should wait and see whether more X-Men actors will reunite with Jackman when we see Deadpool and Wolverine this summer.
