Patrick Stewart Wolverine 3 Hugh Jackman

It's a little sad to imagine a world in which Hugh Jackman isn't playing Wolverine, but as the actor is currently in the midst of production on what will be his final appearance as the character, I suppose it's something we'll have to get used to. While we're bidding farewell to Hugh Jackman next year, we may also be saying goodbye to Patrick Stewart's Professor X.

The actor recently spoke with ITV and revealed that the upcoming sequel could very well be his last appearance as Professor X in an X-MEN film.

I can’t say because I don’t know, but I would imagine this is probably the end of this franchise for me. But the thing about science fiction and fantasy is that you can never, ever say it’s the end, it’s over.

Patrick Stewart is wise enough and has been around the genre enough to know never to say never, after all, Charles Xavier seemingly met his end in X-MEN: THE LAST STAND only to return for several more installments of the franchise, but if the UNTITLED WOLVERINE SEQUEL really is the last time we see Stewart in the role, it will be interesting to see just where they plan on taking his character. We've seen a couple of set-photos which feature Professor X looking a little more frail than usual and Patrick Stewart teases that his character will be a "very different Charles Xavier, that’s all I’m allowed to say. Nothing like the Charles Xavier you’ve seen in the past." Cryptic.

The UNTITLED WOLVERINE SEQUEL is set for a March 3, 2017 release.

It's good to see these two friends finishing up their iconic roles together...

In a way I wish Ian McKellen was in this as well because we know he is done with playing Magneto as well. Hopefully they don't fuck Wolverine up AGAIN though, they ALMOST made a good movie last time but the last half ruined everything because they had to market it to kids so of course they throw in a giant robot to sell toys.

I really hope they don't kill off Logan, I just don't get the proper send off in that sense.

Is that a spoiler?

It seems like he's suggesting that his character dies in this one; the whole "but with science fiction you never know" thing, as if suggesting with this genre there's always a way for his character to come back.

Just throw bricks of money at Jackman (and I guess Stewart at this point) to stay on as Wolverine, and Professor X.

I would love to see one more X-Men film with just the old trilogy cast back this time around.

Speaking of 'last appearances", I'd love for Picard and the Next Generation crew to get a proper send off. They're all still big fans of the franchise and deserve better than to fizzle out as the film that nearly killed a franchise.

When Star Trek 4 gets greenlit, which I think it already has been. The writers include the old cast in some shape or form
