Ian McKellen as Magneto
At the British Independent Film Awards, Contact
Music was able to catch up with Sir Ian McKellen and get him
to say a few words about the upcoming movie X-Men
McKellen On X-Men 3
In the brief discussion, McKellen did confirm that
he would be back for X-Men 3 and that a Magneto spin-off was still
in the works. While the confirmation is no suprise, the fact that McKellen
mentions that he will be in X-Men 3 if it still happens is a little
shocking. From the latest reports, we have figured that there will be another
X-Men movie, with the entire task returning. However, this will
probably be the last X-Men film.
Here is a snippet of what McKellen
had to say about X-Men 3:
X-Men and its story is about mutants, about people who feel disaffected with society, and whom society is hard on, appeals most to young blacks, young Jews and young gays. That's why I did the movie and that's why I intend to do the third movie if it happens.
Ian McKellen goes on to mention a few little details about a possible Magneto
If my character is in it and if he's my age. They might bring Magneto back but it may be the young Magneto. Who knows?
