Patrick Stewart was at the Montreal Comic Con recently. Not suprisingly he was bombarded with questions about Star Trek and X-Men. One audience member asked Stewart if he would be returning as Professor X.
“I think there is every possibility… Yes I’ll be reprising…”
That would seem to be an affirmative. The question now is: How will he come back to X-Men.
At one point there was talk of a fourth X-Men film taking place after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand, but I think that’s not going to happen given the success of X-Men: First Class. My guess is he’ll cameo, possibly along with other X-Men original trilogy cast members, in First Class‘ sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past.
What do you think?
