The 72-year-old actor - who has portrayed the character in five 'X-Men' movies - revealed he will be playing the alter-ego again at some point in the future during a Q&A session at the 2012 Montreal Comic Convention. When asked directly by a fan whether he would be starring in the role again, he replied: "I think there is every possibility."
Patrick then proceeded to list the names of his female co-stars including Halle Berry and Anna Paquin and then added: "Yes, I'll be reprising." But he was then cut-off by his son Daniel, who started listing his father's male co-stars Sir Ian McKellen and Hugh Jackman. But it is not clear whether Patrick was naming these stars to hint they are likely to appear in future 'X-Men' movies.
James McAvoy recently took on the role of Professor X - whose real name is Professor Charles Xavier - in last year's 'X-Men: First Class' movie, and the sequel, 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', is expected to be based on a storyline from the famous comic of the same name.
The original two-issue comic features time travel, which could be a way of both Patrick and James reprising the part of Professor X in the forthcoming film, which is due to be released in 2014 and star Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Fassbender.
James has already signed up for the role again, but there is no word on whether Patrick will be starring as the character in the movie.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
