When Bryan Singer announced via Twitter, that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen were gonna return to the x-men franchise, fans of the series inevitable started to get excited about this prospect, however when Patrick Stewart was being interviewed by Entertainment Weekly, he had to play down his association with the new X-Men film.
“Bryan let the cat out of the bag on Twitter,” Stewart told EW. “And it included announcing that Sir Ian and myself were going to be in this movie. We are, you know, under contractual oath with 20th Century Fox to say nothing about any prospective X-Men movie including the old team. I use “old” advisedly. So it’s a kind of awkward position, because lovely Bryan Singer just blurted it all out there. For me the big thrill is knowing that Bryan Singer is attached to this movie, because not only is he a brilliant director, but also I adore him and hope that it might be true and that we do work together at some point in the future. But I’m not being coy. I know nothing about this project. And I’m hoping that might change in the future.”
I doubt fans will be too worried by Stewart’s comments, he is more than likely just being quiet till the studio officially announces their involvement.
X-Men Days Of Futre Past will be released in summer of 2013.
