Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen visit the past, specifically “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” which will have the pair reprising their respective roles of Professor X and Magneto. Deadline is reporting:
Bryan Singer, who helmed the first two superb installments that launched the franchise at Fox and whom Deadline was first to reveal will helm X-Men: Days of Future Past, has just Tweeted the following news:
“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.”
The previously announced return of Singer as director coupled with the time-jumping nature of the film's storyline—an adaptation of Chris Claremont's beloved Days of Future Past arc from 1981—means that Stewart and McKellen's involvement with this new project isn't exactly a shock. While this development will likely further confuse the already convoluted continuity of the X-Men film series, it does give the pair the chance to redeem themselves following “X-Men: The Last Stand.” So consider me officially excited about this news.
In other news, is Joseph Gordon-Levitt the new Batman? Citing unnamed sources, HitFix is reporting that he will indeed be the actor wearing the cowl in the upcoming Justice League movie. While this makes sense given how “The Dark Knight Rises” was building up the John Blake character, don't consider the story anything more than rumor mill fodder/wishful fanboy thinking until Warner Bros. makes it official.
