Patrick Stewart Confirms He Will Reprise Role of Charles Xavier in Wolverine 3

Fans of the original X-Men film trilogy unite! After months of teasing and playing coy, Patrick Stewart confirms his return to the X-Men movie universe.

While many had speculated that Patrick Stewart would return in some fashion to the role of Professor Xavier in the as-yet untitled ‘Wolverine 3’ film, there was still room for doubt, especially after what seemed like a fitting send off for his older version of Xavier in 2014’s ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’.

Fan interested was however once again peaked late last year when Stewart commented:

“I understand that Professor Xavier will be making more than an appearance, however, and that intrigues me.” 

Now however, any doubts can be put to rest as Stewart has officially spilt the beans on his Twitter account, leaving no doubt that he will appear in the film alongside the returning Hugh Jackman, although the extent of his role remains to be seen.



With the plot heavily rumoured to be based on the ‘Old Man Logan’ limited series published by Marvel several years ago, it will be interesting to see exactly how Professor Xavier will factor into things.


Are you just as excited to find out that the first live-action Professor Xavier (and arguably the best) will be back for possibly the last time? Comment below and let us know your thoughts. Excelsior!

About Warren Kantor

Warren Kantor
A fan of most things pop culture related, from movies, to TV, to gaming, to comics and everywhere in between. A great lover of superheroes since my family bought me my first Spectacular Spider-Man issue in Umhlanga over 2 decades ago, having seen almost all animated series, movies and live action films produced by the BIG TWO from the 90's onward. My favourite hero from marvel is everybody's friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man and from DC it's a 3 way split between Batman-Superman-Green Lantern. Favourite Marvel villains are Green Goblin, Doctor Doom and the Mandarin. "Do you hear that Iron Man 3!!!!" >:( . Favourite DC villains include Joker, Two-Face, Clayface, Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Darkseid, Sinestro and more. Can happily read anything written by Geoff Johns any day and everyday. Give me superhero movies and TV as well and watch that smile grow larger than Galactus. Been playing video games since the flea-market Nintendo cartridge days, through Sega Mega Drive, Playstation, PS2, PS3 and now PS4. Seen over 2,200 movies throughout my life and nowhere near done. Barry Ronge, Siskel and your heart out boys. Also a huge fan of Pro Wrestling in all it's forms for 20 years, and a passion that consumes most of my days. Throw in some NBA on the side, a latent need to cook and a love of art with a just a pinch of writing and you begin to weave together the tapestry that is my life. Or make that the recipe that is the gluten free side dish that is my life. What tapestry will we weave together next and will you have room for seconds?
