Ian McKellen Confirms X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Absence!

But last year’s massive blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past brought back McKellen’s older Magneto and many have been expecting since then to watch the 76 years old actor again playing the role in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse.

We have had rumors about his appearance in the upcoming X-Men flick and his co-star and pal Patrick Stewart told in an interview earlier this year that McKellen would reprise his role. And now comes the confirmation from the actor himself – actually he isn’t playing Magneto in Apocalypse!

McKellen Hasn’t Even Heard That Rumor!
