Announced in his official Twitter page and then reported by Marvel.com, Bryan Singer is bringing back legendary actors Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen to play their signature roles of Professor X and Magneto in 20th Century Fox's upcoming sequel to X-Men: First Class - X-Men: Days of Future Past. Their younger selves in the successful 2011 X-Flick played by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender will also be returning, as well as Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games) and Nicholas Hoult, who will reprise their roles as Mystique and Beast respectively.
Holding the same title as the classic X-Men storyline by Chris Claremont and John Byrne which was set in a Dystopian alternate future, it remains to be seen what the film version of "Days of Future Past" will hold.
