First we posted news this week of recent cast additions to X-Men 3, additions that have only added to the already-impressive cast. Since those stills loyal to the film franchise are desperately looking for further good news since the departure of not one but two directors, open your ears now as we have just received a little bit of reassurance from Professor X [Patrick Stewart].

Patrick Stewart Says X3 Amazing

In a recent report from the good people at the official Star Trek website, Patrick Stewart was caught discussing X-Men 3 rather than Star Trek at the recent Vegas Con. Check out a snippet of the report below:

It was never a guarantee that Patrick Stewart ("Captain Picard") would make this convention, because of a shifting start date on "X-Men 3," in which Stewart reprises the role of "Professor Xavier." In fact, the movie started production just the previous week in Vancouver, but he was still able to get away for a weekend in Vegas. "We have shot five days on 'X-Men 3,'" he announced to hearty applause.

"It's wonderful," he continued about the new movie during his Sunday appearance. "Already some amazing things have been put in the can, some surprises [including] one surprise which will never even appear in a script form. We've just shot it. It's so secret, that there was never, ever allowed anything to be on paper about it."

As X-fans should know, the third film in the franchise has a different director than the previous two, and Stewart commented on that. "I think Brett Ratner is going to do a fantastic job on this movie. He's an extraordinary, gifted man, and I think the perfect choice to direct X3. We miss Bryan Singer, of course, because this is the man that launched this franchise so outstandingly." The film will continue production through December, during which Stewart will be working on it intermittently.

Since I was one of those who were overly disappointed that Bryan Singer left the franchise, even for Superman Returns, I can't help to say that all good news from the X-Men front is great news. Seeing that Patrick Steward claims that a few surprises won't even be written on paper, I guess we can throw out the rumor that Ratner is still using the 'horrid' X-Men 3 script; something he has already denied.

X-Men 3 hits theatres on May 5th, 2006.
