Stewart reveals no plans for X-Men First Class

Patrick Stewart has revealed that he will not appear in X-Men First Class.

 

Speaking at a Star Trek convention in Australia, Stewart said that he doubts he will reprise the role of Professor Xavier in Bryan Singer’s upcoming X-Men prequel.

 

Singer has previously suggested that the film will only focus on a young Professor Xavier and his nemesis Magneto.

 

Stewart – aged 69- joked that Singer is going to hire 8-year-old actors for the project.

 

The actor also stated that working on the X-Men films with co-star Ian McKellan was “one of the best and most fun experiences” he ever had.
