Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart Reprising Roles For X-MEN DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Posted November 27, 2012 by Max in Film News

Director Bryan Singer announced on his Twitter feed earlier today that Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will be reprising their roles for X-Men Days Of Future Past. Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart played Magneto and Professor X in the previous X-Men trilogy. They will be joining Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy as younger versions of the same characters in the sequel to X-Men First Class.

Tweet in Question:

If Magneto and Professor X are returning, what about other characters in the franchise? Will Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) make another appearance in the sequel universe for X-Men?

The film is scheduled for release July 18, 2014.

Here’s the description:

The storyline alternates between present day, in which the X-Men fight Mystique’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, and a future timeline caused by the X-Men’s failure to prevent the Brotherhood from assassinating Senator Robert Kelly. In this future universe, Sentinels rule the United States, and mutants live in internment camps. The present-day X-Men are forewarned of the possible future by a future version of their teammate Kitty Pryde, whose mind traveled back in time and possessed her younger self to warn the X-Men.
