Heroic Hollywood are reporting that James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender has both extended their “X-Men” contracts beyond “X-Men: Apocalypse”, which was seen to be their last film.
Over the weekend, Channing Tatum finally closed his deal to star as Gambit for FOX. Seems like he isn’t alone. Got a tip over the weekend and the hot rumor is that both Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy have reportedly made deals to continue playing Magneto and Professor Xavier in future “X-Men” movies.
Fassbender and McAvoy have previously played Magneto and Professor Xavier in “X-Men: First Class” and “X-Men: Days Of Future Past”. They will both next be seen in “X-Men: Apocalypse” which currently has three weeks left of filming.
Previously, Fassbender made comments to MTV about the possibility of his return:
“I’m not sure,” he told MTV News. “I presume [Lawrence and Hoult] are talking about contractually. All of us signed on for a three-film deal, so we’ll just wait and see what happens after this.”
Fassbender seemed like he was game to return post “Men: Apocalypse”
“Always interested in moving forward”
The possibilities are exciting. Can we see Magneto and Professor Xavier team up with Deadpool down the line? Maybe an X-Force movie?
