Earlier last year, it was reported that Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart is returning to Bryan Singer’s, “X-Men: Days of Future Past” film. It was confirmed that Ian is set to return as Magneto, but Patrick denied it and said it wasn’t true, at first. It appears that Patrick maybe reprising his role as Professor X. Look like Patrick is in negotiations with Singer, check out this photo that Singer tweeted, here.
Still looking good there Cpt. Picard! Speaking of Cpt. Picard, I went back to watching Star Trek: TNG on Netflix (after completing, “House of Cards”), and I’m just starting Season 3.
This is great news! Bryan Singer announced the surprising news today, that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen will be reprising their roles for the upcoming, “X-Men: Days of Future Past” film. There will be the young Professor X/Magneto and the old ones. Keep in mind that the new X-Men movies are prequels to the trilogy, so it’s looking like Patrick and Ian will have their appearances in the new film in smaller roles for the end of the movie, when the characters are grown up.
It’ll be nice to finally see Patrick Stewart back on the big screen, in a big way, finally. Patrick slowed down in acting so he can do theater and Broadway stuff like, “Macbeth”. Patrick still acted in film but he did a lot of voice work for animated films and smaller projects.
Patrick last had a cameo as Professor X, in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” in 2009. It’ll be nice to see him in a longer role, this time.
