Sir Patrick Stewart has revealed he is in talks to appear in the third Wolverine movie.

The 74-year-old actor said he would reprise his role as Professor Charles Xavier for the next Wolverine film, alongside Hugh Jackman as the clawed mutant.

"What I'm very excited about is that we have been talking about a Wolverine movie, which would team Hugh Jackman and myself together," he told The Oregonian.

"Wolverine and Professor Xavier. That would be a very different sort of X-Men from the four movies that I've already done."

Patrick revealed his character will not join Sir Ian McKellen's older Magneto in the third X-Men film, X-Men: Apocalypse.

"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," he said, adding: "But Magneto, Ian McKellen, is certainly going to be in it."

Wolverine 3, directed again by James Mangold and written by David James Kelly, is tipped to be released in March 2017.

X-Men: Apocalypse, starring James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender as the younger versions of Professor Xavier and Magneto, will open in UK cinemas in May 2016.
