Patrick Stewart has said he is likely to play Professor X one last time in James Mangold’s untitled Wolverine sequel.

The English actor was speaking to ITV in the UK and was asked if the film, which is likely to be Hugh Jackman’s final as Wolverine, would be his last one too.

I can’t say because I don’t know, but I would imagine this is probably the end of this franchise for me,” he said. “But the thing about science fiction and fantasy is that you can never, ever say it’s the end, it’s over.”

When pressed with the fact that Xavier has actually died and returned in the series once already, he added: “Yes, I have, I have. Jean Grey vaporised me, from which you would think there would be no return.”

The as-of-yet untitled Wolverine film is currently filming ahead of its planned March 3, 2017 release date.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
