Groan: Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart returning for ‘X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST’

I hate this. Hate this! Fuck, fuck, fuck.


Director Bryan Singer just confirmed on his Twitter that Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will reprise their roles at Magneto and Professor X in X-Men: Days of Future Past, the sequel to X-Men First Class which starredMichael Fassbender and James McAvoy as younger versions of the same characters. They’ll be returning too, along with Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult. The film is scheduled for release July 18, 2014. Read more after the jump.

Here are the Tweets in question.
