Stewart talks about the future...
MTV recently spoke with Professor Xavier actor Patrick Stewart about possibly returning to the role for the next movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. Currently the cast is said to feature the remaining X-Men: First Class cast members, including James McAvoy Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, and Jennifer Lawrence.
Stewart said on the matter, "I don't see why not. That is one of the blessings about fantasy and science fiction. You're never really dead. I would love to come back and do some more." He then added about "something else" related to the franchise, saying, "There might be something else. A little bird has whispered that there might be something 'X-Men' related."
X-Men: Days of Future Past is due out on May 23. X-Men: Apocalypse is due out on May 27, 2016. Previously a 20th Century Fox Marvel movie was given the release date of July 18, 2018, though it's unknown if that's what Stewart was referring to.
Stewart can be seen next as Charles Xavier in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which hits theaters on May 23.
