Think you’ve seen the last of Magneto and Mystique? Well, think again.
Several reliable sources have claim that Michael Fassbender and Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence will be returning to the “X-Men” franchise to reprise their iconic roles.
According to MTV’s Josh Horowitz, although the actors won’t be appearing in the “New Mutants” spin-off, moviegoers can expect Fassbender and Lawrence to return for the “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” reboot.
While promoting the sci-fi sequel “Alien: Covenant“, producer Hutch Parker was also asked if Magneto and Mystique will be included in the 90s-set adventure storyline.
“I’d rather not confirm any of those officially, but yes, the current story that we’re working on has that group involved as well as some of the younger characters that we introduced last time,” he told Cinema Blend.
There have previously been rumours that Fox is recasting Rogue for the movie. However, Parker gave no response to Rogue’s involvement, saying, “We’re all sorting out exactly which mutants will be part of it, and which ones won’t. This one’s a bit more expansive, and you know the comics, so you know how and why.”
As aforementioned, 20th Century Fox will be releasing 3 “X-Men” films next year. Find out more here.
