Without a doubt, both Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart are both stand-out actors from the X-Men movie franchise. While a new generation of actors have given their take on the roles, these two are burned into fans minds as the men who started it all. Luckily, it may not be the last time we've seen them as Magneto and Professor Charles Xavier.
During an interview with Oregon Live, Stewart revealed that McKellen will be in the 2016 film, X-Men: Apocalypse, when it starts filming in Montreal soon. He didn't flatout say McKellen will be revising his role as the Master of Magnetism, Magneto, but it's a pretty surefire bet that he'll be revising the role which may be a bit confusing, since Michael Fassbender is also supposed to be in this film as well. X-Men: Apocalypse is the 6th in the series and will be directed by Bryan Singer.
On top of that, Stewart revealed he may be in a new Wolverine film as Charles Xavier: "what I'm very excited about is that we have been talking about a Wolverine movie, which would team Hugh Jackman and myself together. Wolverine and Professor Xavier. That would be a very different sort of "X-Men" from the four movies that I've already done." This is referring to the untitled Wolverine film slated to hit theaters in 2017. It's rumored that James Mangold will be returning to direct the film. It's interesting to see that Stewart mentions Hugh Jackman. since Jackman has stated he feels too old for the workout regimen for the character and has yet to officially sign on. As of right now, the only confirmed thing about the third Wolverine movie is that is will hit theaters in 2017.
What do you think about seeing Magneto and Professor X in the X-Men films again?
