Thanks to a helpful tweet by director Bryan Singer, it's official X-Men lovers — Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart — are totally coming back to Days Of Future Past as Professor X and Magneto!
They'll be teaming up with the insatiably hot Michael Fassbender (young Magneto) and cutie James McAvoy (young X). JUST FYI!
Now… in the comics, Days of Future Past told the alternating stories of dystopian future-living mutants stuck in internment camps and present day mutes fighting the future from happening.
So with the news, this means Fassypants and McAvoy will be the present day mutants while the vets' future will live in early 21st century as X was believed to be killed in 2006's The Last Stand.
