Sir Patrick Stewart has hinted that he will return to the X-Men movie franchise.
The actor suggested that it is quite likely he will reprise his role as Professor Charles Xavier, reports Newsarama.
“I think there is every possibility,” he said during a Q&A session at the 2012 Montreal Comic Convention.
He began to enthusiastically list his female co-stars on the trilogy.
“Yes, I’ll be reprising…” he added before being cut off by his actor son Daniel Stewart, who started to list his father’s male co-stars.
James McAvoy portrayed Professor X in 20th Century Fox’s most recent instalment of the franchise, X-Men: First Class.
The follow-up, X-Men: Days of Future Past, will be based on the famous comics storyline of the same name.
The original two-issue tale features time travel, which could pave the way for both actors to play the character.
