Behind the scenes Edit

  • The name of the mutant-detection computer from X-Men is in fact Cerebro.
  • Steve Lyons wrote an X-Men novel trilogy, The Legacy Quest.
  • Patrick Stewart, who played Professor Charles Xavier in several X-Men movies, was considered for the roles of both the Doctor and the Master in the 1996 TV movie.[1]
  • Ian McKellen played Magneto in the original film trilogy, and Days of Future Past.
  • In 2017, Alan Cumming, who played Nightcrawler in the 2003 film X2, said that he had been approached about playing the Doctor on two occasions, once by Russell T Davies and once by Mark Gatiss, but that the deal-breaker both times had been his reluctance to relocate to Cardiff.[2]
  • The mask worn by Korwin in TV: 42 was partly inspired by X-Men mutant Cyclops.[3]
