Patrick Stewart Is 'Greatly Looking Foward' To 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past'

Patrick Stewart

Patrick Stewart left us a little bit nervous recently when he said he wasn't signed for "X-Men: Days of Future Past" just yet. But in a new interview, the once and future Professor Charles Xavier shed some new details confirming that, yes, he'll be back as the world's most powerful telepath in Bryan Singer's next X-film.

"I’m very happy to report that Bryan Singer is coming back to direct the movie," the actor told Hero Complex in a recent interview. "I'm very happy that my lovely friend Ian McKellen is going to be with me."

"I don’t know anyone else who is to be involved in the project. Maybe it’s just the two of us!" he added. "That would be a movie! Magneto and Xavier’s conversations…"

Beyond those details, however, Stewart knows nothing. "Maybe once the holidays are over, more information will begin to come through. I have a vague idea of the time commitments, but I don’t know where we’re going to shoot. But I’m greatly looking forward to it."
