After starring in three X-Men movies as the main mutant super villain Magneto, Sir Ian Mckellen announced that he would not be appearing in the latest X-Men film spin-off "Magneto" because he's too old and too wrinkled to reprise the role. He figured that the film might be about the young Magneto.
In an interview, McKellen said that "there's meant to be a 'Magneto' script floating around" yet he had never seen it. That would virtually mean that the producers might had came into decision that the next X-Men movie will not involve him anymore. He joked that "they can't have someone whose face is as lined as mine any longer!" McKellen, who's now 70 years old, said that he was proud to see the 69 year old Patrick Stewart in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Don't worry Sir McKellen, you'll always be the best actor in a mutant role to the memory of all X-Men fans.
