Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen Set for X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Deadline reports that Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will appear in the upcoming X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST in the roles of Magneto and Professor Xavier.

X-Men director Bryan Singer revealed the news on his Twitter account posting, “I’d like to officially welcome back James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and Nicholas Hoult to X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Also thrilled to announce Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart.”

When asked how the actors will portray the same roles played in the previous films by Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, the director responded, “The movie is called X-Men: Days of Future Past, use your imagination. More to come."

The last installment of the franchise, X-Men First Class, was set in 1962 when the United States government enlisted the help of Mutants with superhuman abilities to stop a malicious dictator who is determined to start world war III.
