Patrick Stewart, Professor X of X-Men, Sat With MCU For “Talks”
There is a whole lot to offer now that Disney and Fox have reached a merger. When talking about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there is a lot of content that can come from Fox-owned superheroes. For instance, think about Venom coming on some future Avenger movie. With this in mind, what if we tell you that Sir Patrick Stewart, Professor X from X-Men series, met Kevin Feige and had a decent discussion about the future? Quite exciting!
Sir Patrick Stewart Meets Kevin Feige
Sir Patrick Stewart is probably thinking about playing as Professor X again in future movies. Currently, the actor has a Star Trek show coming out soon, but he is equally popular for his role as the leader of X-Men. However, the last time he appeared on screen for the series was back in 2017, in Logan.
The X-Men and Star Trek star sat down with DigitalSpy and talked about his meeting with the Marvel boss:
“I met with Kevin Feige a couple of months ago and we had long, long conversations. And there have been moves and suggestions, which include Charles Xavier.”
Before anyone gets any bright ideas, Patrick Stewart was quick to shoot down any possibility of this. He thinks that with the release of Logan, the Storyline cannot continue. If it was not for that movie, then perhaps the star could have returned as Professor X in his wheelchair.
He talked about how he felt sitting alongside Hugh Jackman at the premiere of the movie at the Berlin Film Festival. Surrounded from all sides, watching Professor Xavier die made the star incredibly emotional. Sir Patrick controlled his tears but when he saw Jackman, “the bugger” was crying!
“Hugh took my hand, and we held hands with the last seven or eight minutes of the film because there was so many things we were upset about. We were moved by the story, we were moved by one another. We were moved by the movie. But we also both made the decision that we were saying goodbye to our characters as well.”
Sir Patrick finishes it off by saying that the death of the two characters was not just death in the storyline or franchise. It also means the death of any chance for the actors to return as well.
Therefore, the 2017 film is probably going to be his last X-Men film.
