Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart Joining Cast of X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

By AMC November 28, 2012

Bryan Singer took to Twitter just moments ago to announce that Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart would be joining the sequel to "X-Men: First Class". He also announced that "X-Men: Days of Future Past" will be bringing back its key players including James McAvoy (Professor X), Jennifer Lawrence (Raven), Michael Fassbender (Magneto) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast).

Singer's Tweet:

"Thrilled to announce @ianmckellen118 & @SirPatStew are joining the cast of #XMEN #DaysOfFuturePast #magneto #professorX More to come..."

The comic book storyline of "Days of Future Past" tells the tale of a dystopian alternative future in which mutants are incarcerated in internment camps. An older Kitty Pryde transfers her mind into the younger, present-day Kitty Pryde, who brings the X-Men to prevent a fatal moment in history which triggers anti-mutant hysteria.

It will be fun to see how the Professor X and Magneto from our own past romance with Singer's original "X-Men" films, will fit into Singer's vision of the second prequel. These updates lead us to ask the question, will there be other cameos from actors in past "X-Men" fllms?
