Fassbender & McAvoy Sign for More ‘X-Men’ Movies?

X-Men: Apocalypse is said to bring an end to the trilogy that started with 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued in last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. The cast shared between all three films are reportedly done with the franchise, with Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult earlier confirming that they will not likely be back in future movies. The same was thought to be true of Michael Fassbender's Magneto and James McAvoy's Charles Xavier, as their contracts are running out, too. But a new rumor claims that both actors have signed on for more movies.

Both Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy have expressed interest in carrying their Mutant leader characters into the future, with neither ever stating they were officially done with the popular franchise, which kicked off in 2000 with X-Men. The rumor claims that both actors signed new deals this past weekend, just as Channing Tatum solidified his Gambit deal, which has the actor locked in for addition X-Men movies. It isn't known how many more movies either Michael Fassbender or James McAvoy will appear in. But it's clear that neither will die in X-Men: Apocalypse, which some fans have been speculating on.
