Director Bryan Singer revealed on Twitter that both Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen will be reprising their roles as Professor X and Magneto respectively in 2014's sequel "X-Men: Days of Future Past." The announcement came earlier today via the following tweet by Singer:
"Thrilled to announce @ianmckellen118 & @SirPatStew are joining the cast of #XMEN #DaysOfFuturePast #magneto #professorX More to come..."
The film is roughly based on a 1981 storyline that appeared in "The Uncanny X-Men" publications No. 141 and No. 142. The original narrative revolved around a bleak future in which mutants are hunted and imprisoned.
Sentinels rule in the future, while the X-Men battle Mystique's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants in the past. An older Kitty Pryde uses her abilities to transfer her mind into the Kitty Pryde of the past. With the knowledge of the dark future, Kitty assembles the X-Men to stop a pivotal point in history, the murder of Senator Robert Kelly, that elicits an anti-mutant movement and a sinister alternate reality.
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" hits theaters on July 18, 2014.
