Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return for next X-Men movie


Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will reprise their roles as Magneto and Professor X in Bryan Singer’s “X-Men : Days of Future Past”, the director confirmed today in a tweet.

The film, a sequel to “X-Men : First Class” will focus mostly on the younger incarnations of those characters, played by Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy.

The film will reportedly involve time-travel and alternate timelines, which makes cameos from the older versions of Magneto and Professor X a logical inclusion.

Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult have also come aboard the sequel, reprising their roles of Mystique and Beast from “First Class”.
