From a convention in Montreal, Sir Patrick Stewart answered a fan question about him playing Professor X again with a yes.
According to our good buddies Newsarama, Patrick Stewart was asked at the Montreal Comic Convention by a fan if there was a possibility that he would be be reprising his role as Professor X. He aswered, "Yes, I think there's every possibility," and went on to mention several of his costars from earlier X-Men films:
Halle Berry! Famke Janssen! Rebecca Stamos! Anna Paquin! Yes, I’ll be reprising..
It will be interesting to see what comes of this since X3 was considered by most a failure and the mutant franchise was somewhat successfully rebooted with "X-Men FIrst Class". Perhaps Stewart has signed on and isn't necessarily sure of how official the others he named are? Since Famke's character is dead in the X3 universe, and we all know Jean Grey never comes back to life, her name would be an odd one in the list.
