'I was shocked to learn I wasn't circumcised': Patrick Stewart

It was then he realized that it was the flawless ending and way to say goodbye to Professor X. He had later told Jackman during that same evening that he was also retiring from playing this X-Men character. Not to mention, there have been actors who eventually takes back their plan on not reprising their roles. The haunting trailers, early positive buzz and Jackman's insistence that this will be his last time unleashing the claws make this latest film in 20th Century Fox's X-Men cinematic universe an event.

Throughout the course of production on Logan, Wolverine's long-anticipated last stand, writer-director James Mangold consistently played down talk of X-Men cameos, in fear that moments of fan service would detract from his melancholic thriller. If this is indeed his last ride as Wolverine, then all I have to say is bravo and thank you.

Hugh Jackman has been pretty adamant that Logan was his last hurrah for the X-Men franchise, and it turns out the film is also Patrick Stewart's swan song, too. "But by the time we got to market, the very thing people were most exhausted of was the thing the studio wanted to make sure we had enough of".

Watching the three can be both fun and bittersweet because they were the three strong pillars that built the first X-Men movie in 2000, and helped propel it into the franchise it is today.

He went on: 'Here we are, the two X-Men wiping away the tears at our own movie!

The reason behind his decision is simply because he feels this is the "perfect" final call for him to be professor X. Stewart announces his decision on Sirius XM Town Hall.

"I think Dafne is a remarkable actress and I think she does an incredible job with this role".

Directed by James Mangold and also starring Dafne Keen as X-23, Logan lands in theaters on March 3.
