“I think it is going to certainly be the X-Men of all X-Men pictures, and one doesn’t want to tempt fate, but perhaps also the blockbuster of 2014. It was a wonderful experience to reunited with those people.”
Stewart began to elaborate on a few details for the film, including Charles Xavier’s return.
“It’s been 6 or 7 years since X-Men 3, where you will recall that Charles Xavier was vaporized by whats-her-name, Jean Grey. And you’re asking yourselves, ‘If you were vaporized, how can you be in the next X-Men movie?’ Anybody got any ideas how that came about?” One audience member yelled out “Time travel,” to which Stewart responded: “Yeah, that’s exactly it. I guess. There will be an explanation, but it was a little puzzling for me because I thought my X-Men days were over. So, it’s something to look forward to.”
Stewart also revealed that he has completed filming his parts of the movie and that Hugh Jackman will remain on set for the duration of the production which should wrap up in August. You can check out the full video of Stewart’s comments below.
