Sad news: Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen might be done with X-Men. Since the pair returned to X-Men: Days of Future Past it was assumed we might see another appearance from the original Professor X and Magneto in X-Men: Apocalypse. However, Patrick Stewart stated in a recent interview that due to the timeline of the film it didn't seem like they would be returning.
Seeing that Apocalypse is looking at casting younger versions of characters such as Cyclops and Jean Grey this isn't necessarily a surprise. We will see James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and most likely Nicholas Hoult return for Apocalypse and I'm not sure how much time travel/parallel universe stuff it will have. Rumor had it in the past week or so that Tye Sheridan was testing for Cyclops and Saoirse Ronan and Sophie Turner were testing for Jean. There was even a rumor that Chloe Grace Moretz might enter the project as well. The point? I don't know if there will be much use for the original cast in this film or any future films.
Maybe it's time McKellen and Stewart move on from the X-Men universe.
