Patrick Stewart Expects to be in Next ‘Wolverine’ Movie

– by Gig Patta

The elder Professor X may not be in the next “X-Men” movie, but the consolation prize of the next “Wolverine” movie will do.

In an interview with The Oregonian newspaper, actor Patrick Stewart said it is “unlikely” to be in the next X-Men movie, which will be shooting in Montreal soon. However, he is as excited to reunite with Hugh Jackman for the next Wolverine movie.

“And what I'm very excited about is that we have been talking about a Wolverine movie, which would team Hugh Jackman and myself together. Wolverine and Professor Xavier. That would be a very different sort of "X-Men" from the four movies that I've already done,” he said.

Patrick also confirmed Ian McKellen will definitely be in the “X-Men: Apocalypse.”

“X-Men: Apocalypse” is slated to be in theaters next year on May 27.
