It’s a sad day, but it looks like Apocalypse will not have a role for the great Ian McKellan or Patrick Stewart as Magneto or Professor X as the movie will deal exclusively in their earlier lives.

Talking to Larry King, Patrick Stewart said that the story of Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr in the new movie – ie himself and McKellan – won’t feature the older incarnations: “I was learning quite a lot more about it last night. It is going to be looking very much at the earlier lives of all our characters. And so I don’t think we’ll be making an appearance.”

So it looks like it’ll be all James McAvoy and Micheal Fassbender in the roles of the old friends who will soon become mortal enemies.

X-Men: Apocalypse opens on May 27th, 2016

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….
