Check it out: Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellen to return for the Wolverine 3
According to Patrick Stewart, he and Ian Mckellen may be back to reprise their respective roles as Professor X and Magneto in Wolverine 3 due out March 3rd 2017
Here is what Patrick Stewart had to say at a recent press event:
"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.”
"Magneto, Ian McKellen, is certainly going to be in it.”
This comes as a bit of surprise as the two men said they were done playing Eric and Charles during the press round's for X-men: Days of Future Past. However anytime you can bring back the original on-screen Ambassadors of Mutant-kind we are all for it. Let us know what you think in the comments!
UPDATE: According to our own Andrew Stokes Ian Mckellen is in talks for X-men Apocalypse out May27th 2016, not Wolverine 3!
