Speaking with Larry King recently, Patrick Stewart dropped one sad bit of news. King asked him if he was going to be in Bryan Singer’s upcoming “X-Men: Apocalypse” film to which he replied, “No. Nor Sir Ian McKellen, either.”
Stewart added “I was learning quite a lot more about it last night, and it is going to be looking very much at the earlier lives of all our characters. And so I don’t think we’ll be making an appearance.”
The news isn’t a huge surprise as the film is said to be focused on the ‘First Class’ mutants again as they tackle the threat of the rise of Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac).
