Famke Janssen will reprise her role as Jean Grey in 'The Wolverine'.
The actress will return to the 'X-Men' franchise as the telekinetic superhero with a cameo appearance in the upcoming Hugh Jackman-starring action flick, a new teaser trailer has confirmed.
The six-second clip, which was uploaded to video sharing website Vine by the film's director James Mangold, teases the return of Jean Grey, who was last seen in 2006's 'X-Men: The Last Stand'.
Janssen first played the heroine in 2000's 'X-Men' and 2003 follow-up 'X2'.
The surprise cameo follows in the footsteps of Janssen's fellow original 'X-Men' stars, including Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen, reprising their roles in the upcoming 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', which will be directed by 'X-Men' and 'X2' helmer Bryan Singer.
The actress previously revealed she was "waiting by the phone" to hear if she would be asked to return to the franchise.
She said: "I'm waiting by the phone. It would be very surreal. I would be honoured to be a part of any of these 'X-Men' movies. It would be great."
'The Wolverine' follows the latest adventures of Hugh Jackman's anti-hero character following the events of 'X-Men: The Last Stand'.
Jackman previously starred in spin-off 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine', a prequel to the original trilogy.
