X-Men fans should be pretty happy about this. I know I am, but I’m still sort of nervous. Bryan Singer took to his Twitter account today and confirmed that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen would be reprising the roles of Professor X and Magneto (respectively) in Days of Future Past.

On top of that, McAvoy, Fassbender, and Jennifer Lawrence will be back as well, so we’ll have an abundance of characters this time around. I say I’m nervous, and that’s only because I desperately want this film to be awesome. First Class was one of my favorite films last year, and by far the most surprising. It deserves a great sequel, so I’m hoping that manages to happen.
Bryan Singer is set to direct the film and by all accounts looks like he’s willing to give this epic storyline a great adaptation. Let’s just hope it all comes together. How do you guys feel about the original Professor X and Magneto returning?
