Bryan Singer confirms the return of Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart to the X-Men franchise...

Work is ramping up on X-Men: First Class follow-up X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and Bryan Singer has been Tweeting updates from his freshly-created Twitter account.

The film is set to shoot early next year ahead (production is due to start around March), and Singer has firstly confirmed the unsurprising news that James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence are amongst the returnees for the new film.

He’s also broken the news, though, that both Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will be returning to the X-Men franchise.

Days Of Future Past will see old and new versions of the characters of Magneto and Professor X, and this is clearly the film that ties the earlier X-Men movies to these new ones. Singer also teases that more announcements, presumably of this ilk, are to come. Which other X-Men trilogy cast members will be returning, we wonder.
