Stewart and McKellan back for X-Men

November 28th, 2012 by bash Comments

If X-Men: Days of Future Past couldn’t get any more weird then think again because Sir Ian McKellan and Patrick Stewart are back!

Director Bryan Singer tweeted earlier that both actors have returned for the film which is not a sequel to First Class but a follow-up to the much maligned The Last Stand.

“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,@ Singer said.

For those unfamiliar with the X-Men comic, Days of Future Past is an arc where the characters live in the dystopian future of 2013. Sentinels roam the Earth, and the mutant population is being decimated.

More on this story as we get it.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
