Xavier & Magneto Are Going Back To The Future


X-Men: Days of Future Past’s director Bryan Singer (X-Men & X2), has announced that Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart will be reprising their roles as Xavier and Magneto in the upcoming X-Men movie via Twitter:

“I’d like to officially welcome back James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult to X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Also thrilled to announce Sir Ian Mckellen and Sir Patrick Stewart.”

Singer has been involved in all the X-Men movies I thoroughly enjoy, so hopefully that fad continues. Although throw in Superman Returns and what looks to be the appalling Jack the Giant Killer, we really don’t know what to expect. Hard to say that throwing McKellen and Stewart in is a bad idea, but let’s face it; this is not an easy story line. This movie will be tough no matter what. Adding these actors can only help, so let’s hope this is just a sign of good things to come.
