It’s being reported that Patrick Stewart will be returning as Charles Xavier – aka Professor X – in the MCU after Doctor Strange 2.
This report comes from Giant Freakin Robot, and I would love it if this ends up being the case.
They are claiming that Stewart has already agreed with Marvel Studios to return in the MCU after Doctor Strange 2.
The movie’s latest trailer revealed that Patrick Stewart was going to be returning as a version of Charles Xavier in the movie.
The actor then tried to claim that the voice in the trailer wasn’t his.
He said that there are many people out there who are very good at imitating his voice.
However, he changed his tune in a later interview, and claimed that he didn’t recognise his voice in the trailer, but revealed that he is going to be in the movie.
Patrick Stewart might be returning to the MCU after Doctor Strange 2
So, does this all mean that Sir Patrick Stewart is most definitely returning as Charles Xavier after Doctor Strange 2.
The short and simple answer is no.
However, the rumours are out there, and it indicates that conversations between Marvel and Stewart have been ongoing.
We’re just going to have to wait and see what happens.
I for one would love to see him return as Charles Xavier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
There’s no one better for the role, although, James McAvoy did play a very good young Professor X in the more recent X-Men movies.
