Ian McKellen has revealed to Showbiz Spy that in the event of a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine being green light he would be willing to grab his helmet and reprise his role as Magneto.
Ian says, “I’m here and ready and waiting.
“If the Wolverine movie does well they’ll probably make another one and I’d love to do battle with Hugh again.”
Personally I wouldn’t be too interested in seeing Magneto in a Wolverine movie. I’d much rather see that Magneto movie Fox have been sat on for years.
In other Magneto/X-Men Origins: Wolverine news (possible spoilers) someone brought to my attention a scene that the crew may be filming in Vancouver. Additional filming is currently taking place and apparently one scene towards the end of the film involves a badly beaten Sabretooth being picked up by two familiar faces. One is already mentioned in this post and the other is rather blue and naked. Apparently it will involve body doubles because McKellen and Rebecca Romijn are busy (McKellen is on stage and Romijn has just had twins). X-Men Origins: Wolverine takes place around 15 years before X-Men so they may be adding that scene to link the movies, as Sabretooh appears in the Brotherhood alongside Magneto and Mystique in X-Men.
Of course it could be bull, however the person who informed me has been right in the past about a few things regarding filming, so take it as you will.
