Superhero fans exploded with joy last year when we heard about it Patrick Stewart‘s savory tones in the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Fan. Charles Xavier was back! Unfortunately for this versatile take on the character, he also got in the way of a very pissed off Wanda Maximoff and didn’t make the credits.
However, Stewart has hinted that he could return to the MCU one more time as Xavier after teasing that more could be coming while speaking to Entertainment Tonight in support Picard season three.
“I can’t say what Charles’ future might hold.”
This, combined with his recent comment about being told to “watch” an appearance in. dead pool 3It could mean plans are afoot, although he also added: “I don’t remember anything about it, honestly.”
Stewart is also famous for his longtime friendship with Magneto actor Ian McKellen, who reveals he loved her Multiverse of Madness Appearance before adding that the couple is up to something:
“Actually, it went very well. He said something like [‘Hey, I would’ve done this!’], Yes, that’s right. But we’re not done yet, Sir Ian and I. We… we have plans.”
Stewart is 82 and McKellen is 83, so we doubt Marvel Studios would install them as official MCU versions of Xavier and Magneto, but it certainly sounds like they could show up in another multiversal story. Additionally, we’re sure Kevin Feige is slowly narrowing down potential candidates to play the canonical X-Men and other mutant characters.
On the other hand, if Hugh Jackman can make the journey through the dimensions and repeat Fox’s Wolverine, we’d hope they can nab Michael Fassbender again, since we adored his Magneto as much as McKellen’s.
