Sir Patrick Stewart Teases 'Xavier's Return In X-MEN: APOCALYPSE And Beyond

Although we know Apocalypse will focus primarily on the younger incarnation of Professor Xavier (James McCavoy) and co., Patrick Stewart isn't ruling out another reprisal. He also teases another appearance in a future X-flick..could it be the mystery movie coming in 2018? Possible SPOILERS.


One of the things X-Men: Days Of Future Past seems to be setting out to achieve is a passing of the torch from the original team to their younger counterparts; basically making way for the X-Men: First Class cast to continue the franchise. But does that mean we've seen the last of the likes of Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart? It certainly doesn't sound that way! When asked by MTV if he could return to the wheelchair for X-Men: Apocalypse, Stewart sounds positive. "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."   Is he insinuating that his character will be killed off in DOFP? We know that Fox have more X-movies planned out, right up to an as-yet untitled project set for release on July 18, 2018. Stewart also teases another future appearance for his Charles Xavier..is he referring to that? "There might be something else. A little bird has whispered that there might be something X-Men related." You can see the video at the link below.
