Sir Ian McKellen won't be returning to the 'X Men' franchise.

The 76-year-old-actor - who had previously played the role of Magneto in the sci-fi movies - has confirmed that he won't be returning to the role in the much-loved Marvel series. 

When asked if the rumours that he will be joining the cast on the latest film were true, Sir Ian said: "I haven't heard that, I don't think I am, no, no, they are currently making the film and I'm not in it.  You want to be in movies people want to see, I always thought the 'X Men' stories were superior to my taste, to any other fantasy movies."

Opening up about how he feels about not being a part of the 'X Men' family anymore, the star said he's glad he isn't getting "caught up in blockbusters".

He told Digital Spy: "I was very happy to be a part of the films but I have other things to be doing.  I've just done 'Mr. Holmes', I just done some filming for a sitcom, a film for BBC TV with Anthony Hopkins, so there are compensations for not getting caught up in blockbusters."
