Actor Sir Patrick Stewart is most recognized for playing the best captain in Star Trek (he is the best, don’t try to argue) and teaching mutants how to behave accordingly as Professor X in X-Men. In regards to the latter, it was thought that X-Men The Last Stand was the last time we’d see him play the telepathic mutant; considering the characters unfortunate demise in the middle of the film.
Well, a news report from Newsarama is saying he will return to the wheelchair once again in a future X-Men movie.
At this year’s Montreal Comic Convention, a fan asked Stewart about his chances of returning to the film franchise to which he replied, “I think there is every possibility,” and then began to say the names of his female co-stars, “Halle Berry! Famke Janssen! Rebecca Stamos! Anna Paquin!” All these leading ladies have returned to reprise their roles in the X-men film franchise, Stewart went on to say, “Yes, I’ll be reprising…”
There’s no word yet on whether or not Stewart was making an official announcement or he had just gotten away with the best fan trolling of the year. It may have been his way of saying he’ll make a return in X-Men: Days of Future Past, but that’ll have to wait until some kind of official statement is released.
