Patrick Stewart Teases a Potential Return for X-Men: Apocalypse

xaviers meet up

It was revealed last week that the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse will primarily focus on the remaining "First Class" cast members, including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence, but does that mean there's no room for folks from the original cast to return? Charles Xavier himself, Sir Patrick Stewart, was asked by MTV if he thought he'd be returning for the 2016 film, to which he replied:

"I don't see why not. That is one of the blessings about fantasy and science fiction. You're never really dead. I would love to come back and do some more."

Then Stewart dropped a bit of a teaser for the future of the "X-Men" franchise.

"There might be something else. A little bird has whispered that there might be something 'X-Men' related." 

Any theories on what Stewart might be teasing us with? Could it be the unannounced "Fox Marvel Movie" that was given the release date of July 18, 2018, or is it something else? Speculate on Stewart's teasing and tell us if you want to see him back for "Apocalypse" in the comments below!

Stewart can be seen next as Charles Xavier in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which hits theaters on May 23.
