Patrick Stewart Says He's Not Done Playing Professor X

Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness is finally out, and those who have seen it are lucky enough to know just which Marvel crossovers made the cut. 


In the surprise trailer, which played during half-time at the Super Bowl, fans were excited to hear the voice and silhouette of Sir Patrick Stewart, who is known in the Marvel universe for playing Charles Xavier - better known as Professor X of the X-Men. Stewart immediately denied that it was him, before bowing to pressure and admitting that he was involved in the film

If you want to see the trailer for Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness you can see it in the video below.



Despite the death of Stewart’s Professor X in the 2017 film Logan, Doctor Strange has allowed characters to return under the notion that they live in a different multiverse. While Stewart has admitted he doesn’t have a huge role in Disney’s latest - he only filmed for one and a half days in total - he was pleased to have brought the character back.

In an interview with Variety, Stewart spoke about stepping away from the role of Star Trek’s Jean-Luc Picard for good, following the end of season three of Paramount’s Star Trek: Picard. However, when questioned on the X-Men, he was a little more vague about whether he would like to return.

When asked if there was a future for Professor X, the 81-year old actor replied. “Charles Xavier? Yeah. There may be. You know, the whole X-Men comic series is so huge, so vast, there might be an opportunity in which he comes back. We’ll see.”


Stewart’s X-Men trilogy of the early 2000s, ending with X-Men: The Last Stand, are some of the earliest popular superhero films. While there has been no word that the mutants will be making a comeback, it would be interesting to see where this idea goes.
