Ian McKellen to Star in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ + Patrick Stewart in ‘Wolverine 3’
Well he was half wrong. Ian McKellen will have a role as Magneto in Apocalypse while Patrick Stewart is in talks to appear in the third Wolverine film.
Revealed Stewart in a new interview, “It seems to be very unlikely that I will be in the next X-Men movie, which is almost getting ready to start shooting in Montreal. But Magneto, Ian McKellen, is certainly going to be in it.”
He continued, “What I’m very excited about is that we have been talking about a Wolverine movie, which would team Hugh Jackman and myself together. Wolverine and Professor Xavier.”
“That would be a very different sort of X-Men from the four movies that I’ve already done.”
