Patrick Stewart opened up on X-Men: Days of Future Past and returning as Professor X.
Patrick Stewart is one of the few actors who can claim to have been in nearly every X-Men film to date, with Hugh Jackman being the only one who can claim he’s been in them all. His character Professor Xavier, or as we like to call him, Professor X, is one of the most important characters in the franchise. So important, in fact, that he even appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine at the very end to recruit Cyclops, Storm, and a few others at earlier points in their lives.
X-Men: Days of Future Past will feature both of the actors who have played the role as an adult. In fact, the two will most likely meet in a sort of Star Trek moment where young and old Spock met. Patrick Stewart will be playing the old Professor X while James McAvoy will be playing the younger version who still has hair and may still be getting acclimated to the famous wheelchair.
Patrick Stewart opened up on being Professor X in X-Men: Days of Future Past in a video which begins with him apparently at Comicpalooza. He’s speaking to a large crowd as he laughs off the introduction, “Segway … but look, I’m jet-lagged out of my mind. I have been here for a few hours, so please forgive me if you can. … I came here pretty much from the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past,”
The crowd applauded ever so vigorously after Patrick Stewart said that.
Patrick Stewart put his hand to his heart and said, “My work on the movie is done, except I suppose for ADR and things like that, but I think my time in front of the camera on that film is over, and it was four and a half weeks’ work.”
