Patrick Stewart Reportedly In Talks To Play Professor X In Doctor Strange 2

It’s being rumoured that Patrick Stewart is in talks to play Professor  X in the upcoming Doctor Strange 2 movie. This rumour comes from We Got This Covered, so do take this with a pinch of salt.

Patrick Stewart did recently revealed that he and Marvel’s Kevin Feige have had talks about him returning as Professor X in the MCU. Stewart did reveal during that interview that he turned Marvel down because he feels like he finished his time with that character thanks to Logan.

However, everybody has their price, and if WGTC’s sources are anything to go by, then it seems as though Marvel and Patrick Stewart were able to come to some sort of agreement.
