Patrick Stewart, Star Trek: The Next Generation's Captain Jean-Luc Picard, remains as enterprising an actor as ever. Stewart, currently on the big screen in the acclaimed film Green Room and on the small screen in Blunt Talk, just confirmed that he will reprise his long-running X-Men role as Professor Charles Xavier in Wolverine 3. The film will reunite Stewart with his frequent co-star Hugh Jackman, who will return as Logan/Wolverine.

Stewart confirmed the news in a tweet on Sunday, writing "Worst kept secret. #ProfessorX #Wolverine3." And, per Entertainment Weekly, Jackman previously teased the “Old Man Logan” storyline from the X-Men comic books and the potential for a father-son dynamic between Professor X and Logan.

The film's makers are targeting a March 3, 2017 release date.
