James McAvoy has revealed he does not actually get to work with Patrick Stewart in X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

Director Bryan Singer is bringing the original cast and the new prequel cast together in the latest instalment, and the plot is being kept tightly under wraps. James plays the young Professor X, while Patrick reprises his role as the older version.

James told Empire magazine: "It'll be cool, but I don't think [Patrick Stewart and I] get any scenes together, sadly. I don't think there's any future self talking to past self."

X-Men originals Sir Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin, Shawn Ashmore and Ellen Page will all be in the film along with First Class stars Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult.

Game Of Thrones star Peter Dinklage has also joined the cast as the "main antagonist".
