Brett Ratner is such a shitty director that when he was done with ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’, the franchise had to literally go back in time before it existed and start over. Which is how we got ‘X-Men: First Class’ from the terrific Matthew Vaughn.
Now the sequel to that is back with Bryan Singer (who directed the first two), and he was twitter this afternoon to announce that Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will be back playing Charles Xavier and Magneto, though presumably not in large roles since this movie closely follows ‘First Class’.
Even more surprising; there were apparently 117 other Ian McKellens on twitter.
