ComingSoon.net spoke with “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” star Ian McKellen about possibly reprising his Magneto role once again in X-Men 3…
“Ask me this time tomorrow when I would’ve spent the day with Bryan Singer and one of the writers who is coming to the premiere. I’m told by both of them that they hope there’s going to be a third movie, they both hope to be involved and they both hope that Magneto would be a part, but they don’t quite get around to saying I’ll be playing Magneto. It could be the young Magneto they could be writing. Who knows. I think Lauren Shuler Donner has announced that there is going to be an X-Men 3 and there’s going to be a spinoff, a Wolverine spinoff, and that Hugh Jackman is contracted to do both.”
Let’s hope Mr. Erik Magnus Lehnsherr will be back for the third film.
