Could Patrick Stewart be returning to his role as Professor X in Days of Future Past? The actor is dropping hints that make it seem likely.
First, the Comic Book Club podcast had a tip reported by a regular listener. The tipster works at an Apple store and when Patrick Stewart came in, he asked him about another X-Men film and Stewart gave an affirmative. Reportedly.
He hinted again at the recent Montreal Comic Convention. A fan at a Q&A panel asked him directly whether he’d be reprising the role again and he said, “I think there is every possibility.” In fact, Newsarama reports after he mentioned other actors from the franchise he continued saying “yes, I’ll be reprising…” but was cut off by his son Daniel. Interesting.
I’d love to see him back in at least a cameo in Days of Future Past.
