X-Men cast reunite at Comic Con

The entire cast of X-Men thrilled fans at Comic-Con by uniting on stage in the San Diego Convention Centre's largest hall.

Sir Ian McKellan, Sir Patrick Stewart, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, James McEvoy, Ellen Page, Peter Dinklage, Hugh Jackman and others made for an impressive panel.

Director Bryan Singer also gave fans a first look at X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is currently filming in Montreal.

Sir Ian said he was happy to be back in California at Comic-Con.

"I feel safe here now that you got rid of Prop. 8," he said, referring to the recently abolished law that prohibited same-sex marriage.

"I'm looking for a husband," he said. "It's great to meet you, Michael."

Fassbender blushed.

Sir Ian also said that the friendship he developed with Sir Patrick making the X-Men movies led the two to work together on Broadway in two productions this autumn.

Jackman also promoted his new film, The Wolverine, which opens next week. The actor called the claw-wielding superhero "the greatest role out there".

"This is two great movies in one," he said. "The fact I'm with everybody here is something I'll never forget."
