Patrick Stewart and Marvel Studios Have Discussed an X-Men Return
In an interview with Digital Spy, Stewart revealed he is not interested in reprising the role. "Here's the problem... If we had not made Logan, then yes, I would probably be ready to get into that wheelchair one more time and be Charles Xavier. But Logan changed all that," he explained. He clarified that the long conversations with Feige happened a few months ago and the discussion included Charles Xavier.
The actor then explained how emotional he and and Hugh Jackman got while watching Logan. He saw it as the end for the character he has played as for years. "We were moved by the story. We were moved by one another. We were moved by the movie. But we also made the decision that we were saying goodbye to our characters as well," he shared. "In that sense, it was not just the deaths of those two men in the franchise, but it was also goodbye to our part in them as well."
