Actor Patrick Stewart insists he'll stay with the successful X-Men franchise - as long as he's wanted.

Stewart has been at the centre of reports he's poised to bow out of his role as PROFESSOR XAVIER, but the screen star says nothing could be further from the truth. He says, "I'll give you the scoop information on that: I have no interested in opting out of it, and if asked to do a third one, I'll be happy to be involved.

"As far as I'm aware, the studio hasn't even started thinking about a third one."
