U.K.-based Channel 4 News reports that out actor Sir Ian McKellen will happily appear in a third X-Men movie, as the actor feels the films have something to say to "disaffected" youth. Speaking at Tuesday's British Independent Film Awards, McKellen said, "X-Men and its story about mutants, about people who are disaffected with society, and whom society is hard on, appeals most to young blacks, young Jews, and young gays. That's why I did the movie, and that's why I intend to do the third one, if it happens."
