On "The Late Late Show With James Corden," Stewart once again told the story of screening "Logan" with Hugh Jackman in Berlin and shedding a tear that it would be a perfect farewell to Professor X. But then, he hedged, as he has been in recent days, mentioning there's been talk of including Xavier in the "Deadpool" sequel.
Then, fellow guest Dan Stevens, who stars in "Legion," had an idea. "What about Professor X in 'Legion'?"
"Absolutely! One hundred percent!" Stewart replied to the "job offer.
Xavier's inclusion in "Legion" makes a lot of sense, since — comic book spoiler alert — he is the biological father of David Haller, aka Legion, the mutant at the heart of the story (and played by Stevens). Haller is an incredibly powerful telepath, much like Professor X, though his abilities have been mistaken for (or at least complicated by) mental illness.
And hey, while we're at it, why not add Stewart to that "X-Men" pilot that Bryan Singer is developing. Professor X in everything!Want more stuff like this? Like us on Facebook.
