After reprising the roles of the elder Professor X and Magneto for a brief post-credits appearance in The Wolverine, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are set to return to the X-Men franchise full-time next year as part of Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past, and the two actors have been speaking to The Wall Street Journal about working with their younger incarnations, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender, on the time-travelling sequel.

"James and I come not just face-to-face, but nose to nose almost," said Stewart, referring to the scene between himself and McAvoy which we glimpsed in the trailer. "There was a certain happy charm about it, in that, when we shot that scene, it was James’ first day of work and it was my last day. So I was saying goodbye and he was saying hello. James has seen everything I have done and I’ve seen everything he has done. »
