Patrick Stewart Teases His Return as Professor X

One day we're going to get a new sequel to the original Bryan Singer X-Men franchise. There's been talk and rumors about a fourth film for years. Hell, the next X-Men: First Class sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past, could include a few of the characters from the previous X-Men films, due to its storyline which alternates between past and present time. Singer even said in a previous interview that...

I think there’s a strong desire to broaden out the universe. The X-Men universe on its own is every bit as big as the Marvel universe and I think it’s time to reach out and explore it and perhaps even bring some connectivity between the films, as Marvel’s done so well.

Now Patrick Stewart has said that he will be reprising his role as Professor X in the franchise, but there's no information on what film that could be. It could easily be a fourth X-men movie or Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: Days of Future Past. According to Newsarama, Stewart was asked by a fan about returning to the series, and this was his reply,

I think there is every possibility. Halle Berry! Famke Janssen! Rebecca Stamos! Anna Paquin! Yes, I'll be reprising...

It's not hard to believe that Stewart will eventually be back as Xavier. It's just a matter of what movie it will be in, and when it will happen. Do you think he will end up appearing in Days of Future Past?
