Patrick Stewart To Retire From The X-Men Franchise

Hugh Jackman announced that the next Wolverine film will be his last and he will retire from the character. This may also be the end for Patrick Stewart as Professor X as well.

In an interview with ITV News, Stewart understands that this could be his last appearance.

“I would imagine this is probably the end of this franchise for me. But the thing about science fiction and fantasy is that you can never, ever say it’s the end, it’s over… [It’ll be] a very different Charles Xavier… nothing like the Charles Xavier you’ve seen in the past,” said Stewart.

The untitled Wolverine film is directed by James Mangold and stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez.


The film is expect to hit theaters on March 3 2017.
