SIR PATRICK STEWART WILL PLAY PROFESSOR X AGAIN
The fairly major Montreal Comic-Con wrapped up recently, and one of the premiere guests was Captain Jean Luc Picard himself, Sir Patrick Stewart. During his Q&A panel, someone stepped up to be “that guy,” and asked him the obvious question — “Will you ever play Professor Xavier again?” To which the esteemed actor gave a sly smile and replied:
The question is, when and where will the professor return? His atoms were scattered into oblivion by Jean Grey in that catastrophe X-Men 3: The Last Stand, but his “spirital essense” or whatever you want to call it transferred itself into the body of an elderly coma patient under the care of Dr. Moira McTaggert. Thankfully, all of that nonsense seems to have been ret-conned by the superb X-Men: First Class, and since the sequel to First Class will be an adaptation of Days of Future Past, we could easily see Stewart back during the “future sentinel prison camps” section of that legendary X-Men tale.
