Patrick Stewart says he’s in Wolverine 3 and Bryan Singer shares X-Men: Apocalypse teases

February 9th, 2015 by Marc Comments

It’a all about the X-Men at the minute, isn’t it? With Deadpool, X-men: Apocalypse and Gambit all on the horizon?

Well, remember a while back we reported that Patrick Stewart would not be back for Apocalypse (here)? Well, he may not be out of the franchise altogether.

Talking to Oregon Live, Sir Patrick has been talking about his X-Men future: “What I’m very excited about is that we have been talking about a Wolverine movie, which would team Hugh Jackman and myself – Wolverine and Professor Xavier. That would be a very different sort of X-Men from the four movies that I’ve already done.”

But wait, he also contradicted his earlier comments saying that older Magneto, Ian McKellan, would not be in Apocalypse: “Magneto, Ian McKellen, is certainly going to be in it,” he clarified.

X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 26th, 2016 while Wolverine 3 is set for release on March 3rd, 2017 (continues after pic)…


Meanwhile, on a similar topic, Bryan Singer has shared two hints about X-Men: Apocalypse…

The door is back!

I know. Old door. But there’ll be something new behind it. #XmenApocalypse

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….
