There’s great casting news for Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past production to report. Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Michael Fassbender (Younger Magneto), and Nicholas Hoult (Beast) were officially confirmed as returning to the franchise, but as if that wasn’t enough, there was an even bigger treat for X-Men fans. Singer went on to tweet the announcement of the addition of Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen to the cast. Both will be reprising their roles as the older versions of Professor-X and Magneto. Check out Singer’s tweets below.

That’s huge news for fan boys and girls everywhere. Is anyone else wondering what the “More to come” might be? It’s got to be a confirmation of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, the character plays such a huge part of the story line that there is no way the character could be written out and legions of fans will tell you, no one but Jackman should play the role.
