When Logan hits theaters next month, fans will see Hugh Jackman play the Wolverine for the very last time, but co-star Patrick Stewart isn't done being Professor Xavier. Many believed that the third Wolverine solo film will see Stewart as the telepathic mutant, but apparently, that's not the case.

Speaking to ET Online, Patrick Steward said that Hugh Jackman was okay with Logan being his last X-Men film, but Steward said that he's not ready to depart from his Xavier role.


"Hugh has raised the flag that says goodbye. I haven't done that yet," Stewart said.

"His charm and modesty and likeability has never changed," Stewart praised. "What has changed is the actor. His work throughout the franchise is compelling and powerful and witty and very entertaining, and I believe what he does in Logan is quite extraordinary. The aging, the sadness, the weariness, the borderline despair he exhibits coupled with that edge that has always been there is quite remarkable."

Regarding when we'll see Stewart play Xavier again, 20th Century Fox is getting ready to film a new X-Men film with the working title X-Men: Supernova, but that will most likely feature the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse and James McAvoy will probably play the younger version of Professor X in that film. There's also an upcoming X-Men TV series so he might show up in that one. Whichever X-Men project he would appear, I just hope he'll show up unexpected.

Logan is set to release in theaters on March 3, 2017.
