X-Men: First Class Will Feature A Surprise Cameo, & Michael Ironside!

More from this month's Empire magazine. They reveal that the upcoming mutant movie will contain a cameo(though they don't reveal it) and that the legendary Michael Ironside is part of the cast too..

While Empire were enjoying their visit to the set of Mathew Vaughn's X prequel, they were privy to quite a lot of goings on regarding specific scenes but also got to have a look at the editing suite were the film was in the early stages of being cut together.



One such visit resulted in them being witness to a surprise cameo..

..When we enter, editor Eddie Hamilton is working on a scene featuring a surprise and fun cameo which qualifies as a massive spoiler, and another featuring the great Michael Ironside.


So who could it be? There was talk of Hugh Jackman making an appearance as Wolverine while the movie was being shot on Jekyll Island but that seemed to have been shot down by the movie's producers. Were they just trying to throw us off the scent? I doubt it is Wolverine myself, but it sounds like it IS a character we have seen before in the previous X movies anyway.

Plus, Michael frakking Ironside is in it! That was kept quiet. Now anyone not familiar with some great(and some not so great) action and sci-fi flicks of the 80s may have no idea who Ironside is. He also starred in the original V and more recently Total Recall and Starship Troopers. He generally plays the bad guy so I wouldn't be surprised if he does likewise in First Class.

I wouldn't be surprised if that second cameo is Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
PaulRom - 3/30/2011, 11:34 AM
Yeah, I think Singer said that Wolverine won't be in this.
Honestly no clue...Deadpool? Sabretooth? Stryker? A non X-Men character?
tjbpinkfloyd - 3/30/2011, 11:35 AM
My guesses are:
1) Ryan Reynolds as Wade WIlson a la Origins
2) Victor Creed
3) Sir Ian McKellan as Erik's father (A sort of passing the torch)
4) Wolverine - it could be, considering he'd get his mind wiped a decade after this movie. Which would actually make his "first" meeting in the original ironic

making an X-Men movie without Wolverine is like making a Star Wars one without Han Solo; and we all know the results
JayTopStix - 3/30/2011, 11:39 AM
Its obviously wolverine
Wildaniel - 3/30/2011, 11:39 AM
Maybe Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver being born??? LOL.
marvel72 - 3/30/2011, 11:40 AM
it'll probably be wolverine,the conunity is already f*cked up.

why not add wolverine ?
MassExecutions - 3/30/2011, 11:42 AM
I hope its NOT a character we've seen before. I hope its APOCALYPSE!
Fogs - 3/30/2011, 11:43 AM
Would be good if had was something to explain some of the many huge plot holes on the franchise, like why sabretooth got [frick]ing retarded.
tazmaniak - 3/30/2011, 11:45 AM
How would a cameo by Wolverine mess up the continuity?It would just be a cameo.As long as he doesn't interact with the main characters, it's cool.
LEEE777 - 3/30/2011, 11:45 AM
Whoever it is FOX will [frick] it up!
MaddMonkk - 3/30/2011, 11:50 AM
if it is someone we have seen in previous movies and it isn't Wolverine, then it has to be Stryker. No one else has the age to appear in any previous movies and this one. Sabretooth maybe but doubtful.
KidGoku - 3/30/2011, 11:53 AM
Wolverine, Deadpool, Cable, or if it does the impossible, Nick Fury.
Brashlight - 3/30/2011, 11:54 AM
Tea@ LOL, that would be great! He was my favorite! :p
Frecks - 3/30/2011, 11:56 AM
Wolverine obvious
tjbpinkfloyd - 3/30/2011, 12:01 PM
Havok and Cyclops' spacefaring...TIMEtraveling poppa? WOuld explain the age differences
CaptainAmerica - 3/30/2011, 12:02 PM

CaptainAmerica - 3/30/2011, 12:04 PM
I r not done! Foxs is a stupid guy who don't caer about da real fans! First Class? No, moar liek Stupid Class!!!!11 bcos Foxs are stupid companie!?!?!?-))!
blueorangeny - 3/30/2011, 12:05 PM
It has to be Hugh Jack
tjbpinkfloyd - 3/30/2011, 12:08 PM
Could be Nighcrawler being born considering both parents are in it and that he's early 30s in X2
xXkryptoniteXx - 3/30/2011, 12:08 PM
No wolverine if it ends up being wolverine, Ill lose hope for any xmen films.
It be cool if it's apacoyples setting some events for future xmen films like continueing from x4 or something or cable making some appearance and telling some stuff that changes the outcome of there future... Star trek reboot style.

Xmen the last stand sucks balls as well as origins
thanos83 - 3/30/2011, 12:08 PM
Michael ironside for Sebastian shaw..oh wait..
Peteyparker - 3/30/2011, 12:09 PM
Who cares, honestly? If it aint Samuel l. Jackson as Nick Fury i dont give a damn........Full disclosure if it was i wouldn't give a damn
DeadPoolTX - 3/30/2011, 12:12 PM
Its Stryker, Stryker came to Prof.X asking for help with his mutant son after he caused his wife to kill herself, watch X2 again.
thunderforce - 3/30/2011, 12:13 PM
Juggernaught ? But it really wouldn't matter I am still not seeing this .
Starlight - 3/30/2011, 12:14 PM
Does anybody know what are they intended to do after this movie? I read some days ago they want to go on with X4 and X5, but would they plan to make ANY sequels to FIRST CLASS? Can we just "consider" this movie like the beggining?
megabatfan - 3/30/2011, 12:17 PM
How bout Sinister?
Canon108 - 3/30/2011, 12:17 PM
They probably added a Cyclops cameo at the very end considering the negative feedback this thing got when they announced that he wasn't in the script...my guess, either Cyclops of Jean Grey.
FutureCBMHero - 3/30/2011, 12:19 PM
Jean Grey and Scott Summers
kalel38 - 3/30/2011, 12:25 PM
bishop??
AvatarIII - 3/30/2011, 12:30 PM
more recently total recall? a movie that came out before a lot of people that probably read this site were born :D
Starlight - 3/30/2011, 12:30 PM
@ Canon108 and FutureCBMHero - Yeap, AGREE
Markus316 - 3/30/2011, 12:31 PM
I think a cameo by Apocalypse would be the icing on the cake. :)
marvel72 - 3/30/2011, 12:37 PM
@ earzmundo

cable or apocalyspe are great idea's,sort out all the balls up of x-men 3.
AlexDeLarge87 - 3/30/2011, 12:52 PM
Isnt their russian army in this movie? I say OMEGA RED!

mcskunky - 3/30/2011, 12:56 PM
Gotta be Stan Lee. In the danger room banging robot version of himself. excelsior!
skullboy - 3/30/2011, 12:58 PM
Ironside's da man, but not even he can save this trainwreck.
duncboy - 3/30/2011, 1:04 PM
Mr. Sinister?
Gamverine - 3/30/2011, 1:11 PM
i think it would be something related to OMEGA RED...
russians, the CIA maybe weapon x is a copy of what the russians were doing, remember is the cold war the most advance era of this empire...
