Director Bryan Singer tweeted some welcome news yesterday and confirmed that Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan were both returning to the X-Men franchise as Professor X and Magneto respectively.

While many thought this would happen with the newest X-Men flick being based on Chris Claremont’s classic Days of Future’s Past story it is good to see the director of the first two X-Men flicks get part of the band back together for the movie.
So not only do you have James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender returning but now Stewart and McKellan as well as Singer back directing. How can this possibly not be awesome?
