Famous actor Sir Pattrick Stewart, who plays Professor X in Fox’s X-Men trilogy, said he discussed with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige about returning to the mutant squad.
In an interview with Digital Spy, Stewart said that he didn’t want to return to being an actor. “The problem is … if we don’t do Logan, then I would be willing to sit in that wheelchair and become Charles Xavier, but that movie has changed everything,” said Stewart. He also said that the conversation with Kevin Feige took place a few months ago and also mentioned Professor X.
According to Pattrick, he talked to Kevin Feige about building a mutant world in the MCU.
Afterwards, Pattrick mentioned that he and Hugh Jackman were moved to see Logan – an end to the character he had been with for many years. “We were thrilled – thanks to the plot, the roles and the movie. This was a meaningful goodbye for both me and Hugh, not just a death for the two characters.”
Ever since Disney acquired 21st Century Fox, Marvel fans have been looking forward to the day mutants have been introduced into the Marvel movie universe – including the use of actors from the original movies.
Will the two worlds be merged together?
Now, the newest role of Sir Pattrick Stewart is Jean-Luc Picard in the movie Star Trek: Picard. This series will premiere on January 23 at CBS All Access.
