Take Backsies: Patrick Stewart Wouldn’t Mind Appearing as Professor X on Legion

Don’t be so quick to say goodbye to Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, as it seems like the actor can’t resist all the Marvel-related content coming out in the future.

In this clip from The Late Late Show with James Corden, Patrick Stewart shares a familiar story about watching Logan in Berlin and holding Hugh Jackman’s hand as they both teared up. Seeing Jackman, he says, made him realize that Logan would be a powerful send off for his character as well. Stewart had played the role of Professor X for just as long, and with James McAvoy there to carry the torch it would be an emotional but understandable end. He, James Corden, Rupert Grint, and Dan Stevens attempt to recreate the hand-hold, with questionable results.

Never say never, though, as the burst of energy Stewart gets when Deadpool is mentioned suggests that he’s not quite ready to say goodbye. Even more hopeful is when Stevens jumps in with an offer and mentions Legion, as his mutant character David is the son of Charles Xavier. Stewart responds, “Absolutely! 100%!”

What do you think, are you rooting for Stewart to return and maybe make a Legion appearance?
