Patrick Stewart previously made it known that he would not be appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse, and now Stewart again confirms the news, but this time offers he might be in the sequel to The Wolverine.

Stewart spoke with Oregon Live where he also confirmed Ian McKellen's Magneto will appear in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Yes, I understand that it seems to be very unlikely that I will be in the next "X-Men" movie, which is almost getting ready to start shooting in Montreal.

[LAUGHS] But Magneto, Ian McKellen, is certainly going to be in it. And what I'm very excited about is that we have been talking about a Wolverine movie, which would team Hugh Jackman and myself together. Wolverine and Professor Xavier. That would be a very different sort of "X-Men" from the four movies that I've already done.

Fox has slated the next Wolverine movie for a March 3, 2017 release, which will see James Mangold return to direct.

The Wolverine made over $400 million in 2013.

X-Men: Apocalypse has a May 27, 2016 release.
