X-Men: First Class
Los Angeles - Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart have joined the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Director Bryan Singer - who is returning to the franchise after directing the original X-Men film in 2000 and its 2003 sequel X2 - confirmed the veteran actors will reprise their roles as Magneto and Professor X.

The director also confirmed the returns of X-Men: First Class stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, The Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.

Bryan wrote on his Twitter page: "I'd like to officially welcome back James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, & Nicholas Hoult to #XMEN for #DaysOfFuturePast (sic)."

"Thrilled to announce @ianmckellen118 & @SirPatStew are joining the cast of #XMEN #DaysOfFuturePast #magneto #professorX More to come... (sic)"

'Use your imagination'

Days of Future Past, and its 2011 predecessor First Class, serve as prequels to the original trilogy, which also includes 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand. James, 33, and Michael, 35, play younger versions of Professor X and Magneto in the films, respectively.

It appears the latest X-Men will see plenty of time-bending to explain the co-existence of the returning elder actors - Ian, 73, and Patrick, 72 - and their younger incarnations.

Director Bryan Singer, 47, told Deadline: "The movie is called X-Men: Days of Future Past, use your imagination."

X-Men: Days of Future Past is due in cinemas in 2014.
