Marvel just broke the news that Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen are returning to the X-Men franchise to reprise their roles as Professor X and Magneto. With Bryan Singer directing “Days of Future Past” looks more like the X-Men 3 everyone wanted, and less like the sequel to “First Class” everyone expected. That makes me very excited.
Ok, maybe that’s too much. I mean James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender are also playing the professor and his nemesis. So it’s likely that it’s just a cameo. But I’m still excited.
So, is James Marsden next (ignore his ‘death’ in X3. Comic book characters don’t really die. Ask Jean)? (Speaking of…) what about Femke Janssen? Anna Paquin?
Please god let the plot not involve Jean Grey and/or Cyclops in any form whatsoever. So tired of them. Nightcrawler, on the other hand…
