'X-Men' star James McAvoy says the two Professor X's won't meet in 'Days of Future Past'
Does this mean that 'First Class' stars won't interact with the other 'X-Men' vets?
Director Bryan Singer has assembled two -- not one, but two -- of the greatest mutant hero teams ever seen for the upcoming sequel "X-Men: Days of Future Past," but there may be little interaction between the two temporally-separated groups.
"Days of Future Past" is based on the beloved comic book storyline of the same name, which involves alternate timelines and changing continuity, prompting the possibility that James McAvoy (Professor X in "First Class") and Patrick Stewart (who played an older version of the same character in "X-Men" 1-3) would be seen fighting side-by-side.
However, McAvoy has revealed that the young and old versions of the wheelchair-bound Xavier probably won't face down Magneto together.Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore, and Ellen Page (first seen in "X-Men 3: The Last Stand").
"Game of Thrones" stars Peter Dinklage will also star in the film as an unspecified villain.
"X-Men: Days of Future Past" hits theaters July 18, 2014.
