McKellen talks about his return to the series:

“What a gas!” the actor enthuses while in conversation with The Huffington Post. “I mean, Patrick Stewart and I have been have just been playing Waiting For Godot throughout England and in the West End of London. So, we've stayed in touch.

“We can't believe it [laughs]. I thought these were [Michael] Fassbender and [James] McAvoy’s parts, but – no, no – we're back. We’ll give them a run for their money. I mean, I haven't read the script, so I don't know how much we've got to do.

“But, to be back in that world, and for Bryan [Singer] to be doing it – with all the success he's had in the meantime – it's wonderful. Wonderful."

As for Fassbender’s take on Magneto in X-Men: First Class, McKellen has nothing but praise: “I thought he was exactly that: first class. Excellent...

“I thought he was better than me. But, we weren't quite playing the same character because he was so much younger than me.”
