Sir Patrick Stewart(@) squashed some rumors that he and Sir Ian McKellen(@) would reprise their roles as Xavier and Magneto in the upcoming X-Men movie. Unfortunately this may mean they will lay to rest two of the greatest comic book roles we have seen on screen. While i have no doubt James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender can easily hold the weight of those characters on their shoulders. I am still sad to see them leave the characters behind. Apocalypse will undoubtedly revolve more around the early years of the characters taking place in the decades between DoFP and the original X-Men movie.
Rumors for other character replacements can be found here.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set to release May 27th 2016
