Hugh Jackman's Final Wolverine Film Confirmed to Feature Patrick Stewart
Patrick Stewart has been rumoured for some time for involvement in the upcoming Wolverine finale, and those rumours have now been confirmed.
Producer Hutch Parker spoke during the red carpet premiere of X-Men: Apocalypse, confirming Stewart will reprise his role as Professor Xavier in Hugh Jackman's final performance as the beloved mutant.
Word has circled on the casting for a while now, and Jackman has hinted at the possibility of exploring the relationship between Wolverine and Xavier, so the announcement isn't a surprise. With filming having begun last week, it at least lays to rest any doubts.
The third and final, untitled Wolverine film will be released March 3, 2017.
