You may remember that we told you last month that X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer had been tweeting casting news about the movie, confirming that James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, and Nicholas Hoult who played young versions of characters Charles Xavier, Raven/Mystique, Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto, and Hank McCoy/Beast in 2012’s X-Men: First Class, would be returning, and that Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, and Hugh Jackman, who played Magneto, Charles Xavier and Wolverine in previous X-Men movies, would also be in the upcoming movie.

While Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart confirm that their work begins in April:
Magneto & Prof X (Eric & Charles) reunite in Montreal in April. Estragon & Vladimir (Gogo & Didi) and Spooner and Hurst, Broadway in Fall.
